Summer Mini Bloggiesta To Do List

Posted June 16, 2017 by MC / 5 Comments

Categories: Book Reviews

It’s that time again….it’s time for Bloggiesta! This weekend (June 17-18) is our summer Mini Bloggiesta. It’s a small event, intended to help us set aside one weekend to catch up on all of our blogging goals. We are about halfway through the year, so this is a great time to take a step back and see what you have accomplished so far and what you still want to accomplish in the rest of 2017.

If you have never heard of Bloggiesta, go check out our website to learn some more about the event. And if you write your own To Do List, make sure to link it up here so that all the Bloggiesta participants can visit your blog and offer you some encouragement. We will also be having a Twitter chat on Saturday June 17th at 2pm EST, so make sure you follow @Bloggiesta and join us for the chat!

Here is my plan for this Mini Bloggiesta:

  • tidy up my inbox
  • catch up on cross-posting reviews
  • update pages on my blog that are out of date
  • update my reading log
  • and of course, host our Twitter chat and run Bloggiesta!

I’m very excited because I happen to have a long weekend coming up, so I plan on continuing to work a bit on Monday as well. Hopefully I can be extra productive.

What will you try to accomplish this weekend?

Comings and Goings Happy weekend! It has been nothing but rainy here for WEEKS and this weekend the sun has finally come out! It’s still a little colder than I would like, but as long as the rain has stopped for a few days, I’m happy. My reading has slowed down a bit lately. I still haven’t found a book that I really like. Everything I’ve read lately is letting […]

ARC Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Oh, how excited I was when I heard that Marissa Meyer was coming out with a new book. I adore her Lunar Chronicles, so I was certain I would love whatever she wrote. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with Heartless. The writing was still just as lovely as her other books, but the story, characters, and world fell completely flat for me. The characters were…fine. I didn’t really hate them, […]
