Bloggiesta starts today! Here’s a chance for us to catch up with those things that we’ve been meaning to do around the blog for ages, but haven’t had the chance. The Bloggiesta event is hosted by SueyΒ andΒ Danielle.

I’m going to be away for some of this weekend but I’ll have a bit of time for bloggy stuff, so here are my goals. I’ve tried to pick things that are unlikely to take me a lot of time, although I do find that once you get stuck into bloggy stuff, it’s hard to know when you’re “done”!

Five Goals for Bloggiesta

1. Sort out my tags

Tags are used to find reviews or posts for quite specific subjects. My tags are getting a little unwieldy – I need to do a bit of a stocktake and organise them a little to make it easier for people (myself included) to find what they’re looking for around the site.

2. Cross-post my reviews to Amazon

I’ve got a bit behind with posting to Amazon so I need to try to sort those out.

3. Check out the Mini-Challenges

The last Bloggiesta I took part in had some very informative mini-challenges up – I learned about SEO, got some spiffy new plugins and (hopefully) ended up with a better-looking blog at the end of it! I’m quite looking forward to seeing what interesting things there are to learn this time.

4. A tidy or reorganisation of Goodreads

My to-read shelf is up to 380 books. At the rate I’m currently reading, that’s almost four years worth of reading. A cull may or may not be in order πŸ˜›

5. New graphics for various things around the blog

If I have time, I’d love a new graphic for Clock Rewinders. There are a couple of other places where things could do with a bit of sprucing up, too.

Are you taking part in Bloggiesta this time? Link me your goals and I’ll drop by to see what you’re up to!

  1. Tags/categories are something that I want to play around with and organize this weekend as well. It’s kind of a daunting task, but I think (hope) I’m up for it.

    Good luck with your goals, Angelya! πŸ™‚

    I love the mini-challenges…I always learn great new stuff to use on my blog.

    Hope you’re getting lots done!

      Thanks for visiting Kristin! Unfortunately I had a very busy Saturday then went away Sun/Mon, so I didn’t get anything done at all! I’m hoping to catch up this week though. I hope you had better luck than I did πŸ™‚

    If 300 something is too long of a Goodreads list then I am in trouble. You’re right, though. I will never ever get to the end of it. Must add that to next Bloggiesta!

    I like your blog background. ;]

      Thanks, and thanks for visiting! I guess there’s nothing wrong with having an enormous to-read list.. it’s just a bit daunting I guess. I hope you had fun with Bloggiesta weekend!
