Bloggiesta 2011: Let's do it!

So, this weekend (Jan. 21, 22 and 23) is the fourth annual Bloggiesta, hosted by Natasha over at Maw Books Blog. What is Bloggiesta, you ask? As Natasha puts it:
In short, it’s a blogging marathon.  A opportunity to cross those nagging items off of your to-do list and improve your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing. Our awesome mascot Pedro (Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize) is ready to break out the nachos, enchiladas, drinks, mariachi music and whack a pinata or two!  It’s nothing short of an awesome fiesta!
I'm quite excited because I've been meaning to set aside a serious block of time for nothing but planning and developing ideas and future content. Some of my goals--which may or may not completed this weekend, but will at least be worked on--include the following:
  • write reviews (there's plenty of raw data for that!)
  • research for interviews
  • work on post templates
  • gather HTML crib-sheet
  • scout out possible books for challenges
  • work on design plans
  • brainstorm (hopefully) interesting article topics
  • develop review policy
  • work on Features page
  • create landing page content
  • "research, research, research" all things publishing 
  • install a stats counter (Google Analytics)
  • ...and other stuff!
It should be fun to be able to do all of these things in the virtual company of other great bloggers. Almost 200 people are it's going to be a righteous party fiesta. ^_^

**Note: I may be making edits n adjustments that result in odd-looking content. Pay it no should all be normalish by Monday.**


  1. And so many of the items on your to-do list fit in perfectly with the mini-challenges. Do let me know if you need any help at all with anything!

  2. We have some similar goals! Isn't it fun to know that bloggers everywhere are hard at work on their own to-do lists? I feel so much more excited to get to work. Good luck!

  3. Good luck with all the tasks you have set before you! I hope you find great success this weekend.

  4. Happy bloggiesta and good luck with everything on your list! I'm sure you'll do great!
