Bloggiesta September 2014


It’s Bloggiesta again! Last time, this event really helped me get more organized, and made me tackle tons of things on my blog to do list. Now I’m at it again, with a new to-do-list.

If you want to participate with a fun bunch of people, or just want some inspiration to tackle that dreaded to-do-list, sign up for Bloggiesta here.

This time, Bloggiesta runs from Thursday, September 18 to Sunday, September 21st (midnight is the deadline, no matter where you are in the world!).

Here’s my to do list for this Fall Bloggiesta:

  • Set up guest posts, book promos and excerpts, starter day parties and release day parties until the end of September.
  • Write remaining reviews until the end of September (mostly for book tour sign ups).
  • Write mini-reviews for December (these should be the last of the mini-reviews, that is, if I manage to catch up with my Netgalley reviews by then). Five more mini-reviews to go.
  • Add reviews September to Goodreads, Amazon, B&N and Netgalley.
  • Add reviews August to review index.
  • Comment on ten other blogs participating in Bloggiesta.
  • Finish reading “The Betrayed” and “Magisterium”.
  • Add books reviewed in July to review index.
  • Add books reviewed in July to I Heart Yearly Reads.
  • Add books reviewed in August to I Heart Yearly Reads.
  • Update reading challenges for July and August.
  • Update blogger bio in the sidebar (outdated).

If you’re participating too, feel free to leave a link to your to do list in the comments! Good luck.

Bloggiesta Spring 2014 March 27 – March 30


It’s time for Bloggiesta! This is my first time participating, and I’m totally psyched about it. I might even participate on two of my blogs, just because I’m crazy like that.

Anyway, if you want to participate in Bloggiesta as well, then head over here and sign up!

Here’s my goal list for this spring Bloggiesta, which runs from March 27 – March 30.

  • Write and schedule five reviews for April.
  • Add page with my books, and links to my author website.
  • Sign up for some more blog tours I got invites to.
  • Upload all blog tours promo posts for April that I signed up for, so far.
  • Make progress on Netgalley. Get five reviews scheduled for Netgalley books I read a long time ago, but never got around to reviewing.
  • Start setting up Month in Review post.
  • Update reaching challenges.
  • Visit 20-30 participants in the Bloggiesta challenge.
  • Update review archives. Add reviews for March.
  • Add reviews March to I Heart Yearly Reads.
  • Cross-post March reviews to Amazon, Goodreads, B&N and Netgalley.
  • Add album on Facebook page with book covers for March reviews and links to reviews.
  • Do the same for January and February.
  • Reply to emails for the last few weeks (I’m terrible at this, and keep forgetting to check my email for this blog).
