Bloggiesta = blog maintenance time.

What is Bloggiesta, you ask?  It’s blog maintenance time! “Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.” That answer comes directly from‘s about page.

Here’s my to do list for this Bloggiesta:

  1. Revamp the Book Index page that I took down last year. Done!
  2. Refresh my side bar content, including figuring out how to create a ‘connect with me’ social media area.
  3. Draft about a half dozen book reviews.
  4. Revise Twitter lists.
  5. Participate in at least one Twitter chat.
  6. Visit the blogs of all the other participants–be more social.

If you’re not a blogger and just read this post, you should consider blogging, because someone who isn’t interested in blogging probably wouldn’t have read this post. Come on, you know you want to! Visit the Bloggiesta site’s Mini-Challenges page for lots of great ideas and blogging support.

Good luck to all participants! I look forward to connecting with you soon.


  1. I hope the end is in sight for this project. I also hope that you blog about the translation experience–it would be fascinating to learn about your process.

  2. Very nice list. Great idea to do this periodically.

    Being more social is a very important item to consider. Bloggers are a terrific community with a lot of ideas and information to share, and they are the NICEST and most helpful group of people I know.

    I haven't made a change for a while. I will need to think about what I want to do.

    THANKS for your wonderful post.
