FINITO! – BLOGGIESTA HAS ENDED….

Bloggiesta-MiniJu18-finito

Well, the weekend and Bloggiesta are over!  I accomplished quite a few things, but then I started early.  I added to my original list…and finished all but the Twitter chat, which I always seem to forget because of the time difference.

I think I’ll stop adding it to my list, since I really don’t get Twitter chatting…lol.

Here are my tasks, crossed out, FINITO!

Enjoy your week….

MY BOOKISH (AND NOT SO BOOKISH) THOUGHTS: BLOGGIESTA, ETC.

PicMonkey Collage-textured

 

Welcome to another Thursday, and the ramblings that make up My Bookish (and Not So Bookish Thoughts), hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.

I wasn’t going to add a new post today, since I am participating in Bloggiesta...but then I got most of my list for that event completed, so here I am.

Follow the link and find out what I have accomplished so far.  You may have noticed a different look here, and I also added some pages and updated some others.

New blog theme, header, background and blog button.  I love doing this stuff!

Yes, I know many people have fabulous designs created by professionals….but for me, the fun is in doing it.

On the home front this week, I’ve been clearing out drawers:  in my desk, in nightstands, etc., and I shredded a bunch of stuff, too.

The trouble with these tasks…once you get started, the possibilities expand, and the lists are endless!  But I stopped for a while…time to contemplate.

I do need to go out in the garage and organize those bins.  Some of them have papers from more than seven years ago, so I can rid myself of those, too.

I also want to gather up some of my collections and take them to a consignment shop….

See what I mean?  Endless tasks….

What does your bookish/non-bookish life look like this week?

IT’S SPRING! LET’S BLOGGIESTA!!

 

Good morning!  It is almost time for Spring Bloggiesta:  March 27-30.  I’ll be working on this blog—I have eleven total, so I alternate—and here are some of the tasks I will be hopefully accomplishing.

My usual style is to start with a relatively small list, and then add to it as I go along, as I see what fabulous things everyone else is doing.

My List:

❏  Do two mini challenges
❏  change or fix one or more things on my sidebar
❏  add a page (about me, contact, policy, etc)
❏  comment on other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs (at least 20!)
❏  change one thing on my layout and/or look (header, theme, background)
❏  work on some of my other blogs
❏  delete irrelevant pages
❏  create a new gravatar (favicon) to include latest book
❏  participate in at least one Twitter chat

So let’s party!  Grab some chips, have something salty for lunch….and have fun!
