Bloggiesta!

Bloggiesta is a completely new event for me – I have been invited by a fellow blogger on Goodreads and I thought, why not? I love bookish events and getting to know you all so I had to sign up for this. What is Bloggiesta, you ask? In short, it’s 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.

I have been extremely busy in the past few weeks/months and even though I haven’t completely abandoned my blog, there are things that I’d like to improve and work on during these couple of days. Bloggiesta runs from 30 March to 1 April (next weekend) – and you can still sign up by clicking here if you’d like to join in the fun.

My aims:

  • Get to know some fellow bloggers
  • Make new friends
  • Re-write my review policy
  • Reply to my comments 
  • Visit as many blogs as I can and comment on other people’s reviews
  • Take part in challenges
  • Schedule some discussions for the following weeks
  • Schedule 5 WoW posts for the following weeks

Is anyone planning to take part in this event? Do let me know! :)

    This may be completely random, but I’m loving your header! Also, I went through a huge Agatha Christie phase at one time. Have a great weekend!

    I’ve signed up for this, and mostly I’m rearranging stuff in my sidebars and eliminating other things; I’m editing pages; and I’m enjoying visits to other blogs.

    The mini-challenges are fun, too.

    Oh, that really sounds like something for me! It should be fun to get to know people. Perhaps even make friends so exchange thoughts about books and nice tips. I’m going to take a look!
