Late to the party (that hardly ever happens!) but ready to put on my sombrero and get to work. Bloggiesta is hosted by Natasha at Maw Books and " 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." I've only got a few goals this time but I have a feeling they may take a good long while. If I had a lot of smaller things, then I'll be tempted to do those first so I can mark things off faster and never get the the things I really want to get done.
1. My Google reader and I have been doing battle. And it's not just that I haven't been able to keep up with the posts that are coming in. I've also had quite a few blogs that for some reason would not show as having things read once I'd been through them. I need to catch up on my reading, clear out the blogs I just don't to (over 200 is much more than I can manage), clear out the blogs with the glitch and try to get them reinstalled.
2. Set up a schedule for the planned "The Space Between Us" readalong to begin in July, make a button for it and write a first post about it.
3. Go through all my challenges and get them updated. See if I need to adjust my lists of books to make getting through the challenges more doable.
4. Change my template and either go back to a two-column format or reset the three-column format to make my blog look less cluttered. I'm betting that this will take me most of a day -- unless I can recruit my resident computer geek to help.
Today I'm hoping to complete the first goal checked off and check out the mini-challenges.
