Bloggiesta: Day 2 [Goals & Updates]

Saturday, September 29, 2012 § 3 Comments

Bloggiesta is hosted by There's A Book and It's All About Books, and runs from September 28-30.
It's day 2 of #bloggiesta, and I've been getting a lot done, surprisingly. I've got a spiffy new layout (well, header)... which I've went back and edited about 12 times. Let me know what you think in the comments!

I've updated my to-do list and will work on more mini-challenges today. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to update tomorrow, since it's a full day of working on my godson's birthday party again, and a product presentation at my favorite spa. Cheers to free samples.

List of Goals
  • Write up a review for "Please Ignore Vera Dietz" by A.S. King (will post it in a bit!)

  • [x] Create a blog schedule, make monthly blog lists, create templates ✓
    • Template: Work on improving my links section for purchasing the books (adding Goodreads, author website/twitter, etc.)
    • Template: Also come up with a solid format for the body of my review
  • [x] Learn how to use Pocket

Completed Mini-Challenges, September 29
  • Changed up my layout.
  • Fixed up my review templates and applied it to my past reviews. Added a Goodreads widget that allows visitors to add the reviewed book to their shelves with the click of a button. I love this little thing!
  • I'm further utilizing Evernote by saving my template codes, different HTML, and image URLs into notes.
  • Used my journal to make lists: What I'm reading next, authors with upcoming releases to look out for, and giveaway ideas.

I'll be tackling the Microsoft Access challenge later tonight! Wish me luck!
