  • Work on series posts.
  • Write guest posts.
  • Put out invitations for guest posts.
  • Conduct and edit author interviews.
  • Create template posts for your future reads (ie: title, images, linking, tags, etc,) so you can open up, write review and post without being bogged down with technicalities
  • Clean up your tags, archives, books reviewed list, etc.
  • Improve your blog template, clean up sidebars, add a favicon, install those plugins that you’ve been meaning to do.

  • Any bloggy type housekeeping that you’ve been neglecting.

Boy do i have alot of work to do! So what are my Bloggiesta goals?

  • Post some new reviews.
  • Review book to movie.
  • Rearrange items.
  • Fix any dead links.
  • Maybe find a new blog layout.
