What’s Bloggiesta, you ask? Well, besides an opportunity for me to pretend like I’m a flamenco dancer, it’s also a special time set aside for us bloggers to catch up with all those pesky tasks that we’ve fallen behind on, never had time to get to, or simply to have an excuse to celebrate that you spend as much time on your blog as you normally do. I may have added that last part all by myself.
Here’s an excerpt from the hosts of Bloggiesta, Suey from It’s All About Books:
If you decide to participate, here’s what you can expect:
- to spend time that weekend (as much or as little as your schedule allows) working on your blog
- to create a to do list to share on your blog and link up with other participants
- to hopefully participant in several mini challenges and learn something new
- to connect with other participants through blog hopping or twitter
- to make new blogging friends!
- to come away at the end of the three days with a spiffed up blog!
If all that sounds like something you’d like to do, please write a post letting us know and link up! OLE!
So, I’m going to participate in Bloggiesta this year, because I have a whole host of things I’ve been wanting to do to spiff up Ruby’s Reads. Here’s a sampling of what I’ll be working on from March 30 to April 1:
- Creating an All About Me page, based on the questions you all have asked me. Well, mainly Amanda and Kelly. Some of them are awfully bizarre, so it should be pretty entertaining.
- Fixing the named attribution jump thingy on my Review Index page and, um, updating my Review Index.
- Either updating or eliminating my Giveaways page.
- Updating my features page.
- Getting organized for the Ruby’s Reads Debate Team feature, particularly enlisting bloggers to debate. HINT, HINT.
- Figuring out how to have one of those scroll thingies that features my recent posts. Help?
- Getting ready for April is the Rubyest Month–my birthday celebration!
I have more. In fact, my list goes on for quite some time, but these are at the tasks that came to my mind right away. I don’t expect everything to get done, but I’d be satisfied with a weekend of hard work and making at least some headway. Also, I suspect the whole thing will be pret-ty fun!
