Okay, I’m jumping the gun with this post already…but I’m eager to begin the Spring Bloggiesta.  So I’m writing this…and when the Starting Gate opens, I’ll be there!

As we discussed in our sign-up posts, there are a number of to-do tasks we will be focusing on.  I tend to start with a small list and add to it, if I have time.

So here goes:


My List:

❏  Do two mini challenges  –  Done! 1)  River City Reading – Pic Monkey; 2)The Steadfast Reader:Creating an Attractive Page
❏  change or fix one or more things on my sidebar-Done!  Removed three items
❏  add a page (about me, contact, policy, etc)  Done!  Added contact page!
❏  comment on other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs (at least 20!)   Done!  Still going, too!
❏  change one thing on my layout and/or look (header, theme, background)  Done! New theme, new header, new background!
❏  work on some of my other blogs   Done!  Changed headers on Rainy Days and Mondays & Story Corner!  Changed background on Creative Journey using Digital Scrapbook Images.
