Bloggiesta Wrap-up

blogiesta

The long weekend is over here in Australia, so it is time to wrap up my first ever Bloggiesta participation! Let’s see what I managed to cross off my original list:

  • Back-up my blog – never done that before (scary thought losing all these posts!)
  • Renovate my blog template (slightly daunting as this will be the first time I’ve attempted a wholesale change to my blog design!)
  • Create an index of my books reviewed and header tabs – now that I’m nearing 50 books reviewed, the list is just getting too long for my sidebar
  • Clean up any old / unnecessary Mister Linkys
  • Do a status update on my Aussie Author Giveaway (most popular book, etc)
  • Catch up on oustanding book reviews (1 out of 3 complete!)
  • Publicize my World of Words weekly feature
  • Write some posts for a rainy day…

My score is 6.3 out of my goal of 8 tasks, but I figure that’s not too bad for my first ever Bloggiesta – and my blog template renovation took quite a bit longer than I expected – hope you like it!

Thanks to those who dropped by in support during the weekend.
