Bloggiesta – A Party to improve your blog!

Posted by caribookscoops on June 19, 2009

blogiestaSo Natasha over at Maw Books Blog is doing a fantastic book blogging challenge called Bloggiesta and it’s all about improving your book blog. And as some of you may or may not have noticed I have been a little absent lately, and I am back in full force (or at least in some force). I recently accepted a dream position at a local middle school as the reading coach – and I have been bogged down with getting ready for the next school year. Now school is out and so I this is a perfect way for me to dive in. Holly and I have been getting ready to make some changes at Bookscoops – nothing major, but here are the goals for this weekend.

  • I can’t commit to the 24 hours of working on my blog, but I can commit to six hours and if I do more great as I have other commitments
  • Write at least three reviews (I am hoping for 7) of the books in my to be reviewed pile
    1. One Wolf Howls by Scottie Cohn
    2. Peace, Locomotion Jacquelyn Woodson
    3. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
    4. Milagros by Meg Medina
    5. Cybele’s Secret by Juliet Marillier
    6. Way out West With Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe by Ann Cannon
    7. The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
  • Re-do our about us/ page
  • And if I have time I will change our theme and work on the side bar

My husband will have the laptop this weekend as he has school, so we will see how much I can actually get done.

  1. Hey Cari,

    It’s all about what you can get done in the time you have it! I know you’ll be great. BTW, the link in Mr. Linky went to my site instead of yours. I added in yours again, but I have no clue how to delete the original although I knew the original poster can. Who knows, this is my first time using Mr. Linky.

  2. Never mind, I figured it out. Carry on!

  3. Natasha – Oh goodness. . . I was in a hurry to get out the door and forgot to copy and paste my own link. How bad it is that? Thanks for fixing it.

    Go Cari Go!!

    Husbands taking laptops… honestly. Doesn’t he know you have a Bloggiesta to attend? :D

  5. Thanks for the support!!! I want my own laptop – we will see, maybe I’ll get one soon and actually I forgot to mention it to him because well school trumps bloggiesta, even if I am bummed.

    My husband actually prefers desk tops, weirdly enough.

    I love my laptop.
