Well, I'm done! I finished every task I had planned for the weekend and even some of the mini-challenges for Bloggiesta. If you missed my post Friday and don't know what Bloggiesta is, you can go here to see my original post.
I spent most of Friday working on small things like adding LinkWithin, sidebar maintenance, adding widgets, and creating a blog button. I can't believe I've gone so long without a blog button. Here it is:
Saturday I spent working on mini-challenges. I revamped my interview / guest archive, added Google Alerts (I will now be notified if someone blogs about me, that way I can know about it and comment back right away!), I wrote a couple reviews and posted them up on the blog, and worked my butt off on getting all my emails organized, authors responded to and email some authors I've been wanting to have on the blog.
I spent today working on more reviews, on the guest post I promised Jacinda of The Reading Housewives, and just plain thinking about things!
During the weekend, I also commented as much blogs as I could, looked through other mini-challenges and participant posts, responded to reader comments, and twittered with my fellow #bloggiesta participants.
It was a lot of work and I spent way too much time on the computer than I probably should have.
Here is what my To-Do List looked like for the weekend:
write out my to-do list for the weekend add LinkWithin widget create a blog button to add to sidebar add upcoming blog tour buttons to sidebar update my list of recommended reads on sidebar and link to reviews create a page/challenge/giveaway for Poetry Month write my guest post for Award Winning Reads email authors for future participation (interviews, guest posts, giveaways) organize emails more and reply to review requests write reviews(Done: Inside Out, Delirium, Far From You, Living Dead Girl) participate in the mini-challenges for Bloggiesta(Done: Sidebar help), Make some pages, Flashback challenge: Set up alerts, Write reviews faster) Twitter more kindle deals on @YAKindleDeals write my wrap-up post for the weekend
Now that I'm done what do I plan on doing? Well, I need some rest but why not do something bookish? I'll be watching the latest episode of The Secret Circle, followed by reading more of the book, and then checking out all the finishing posts from other participants later on.
Thank you Bloggiesta for such a wonderful and satisfying weekend!
