Bloggiesta commences this morning, and will continue for the next 48 hours! I am not sure how many hours I’ll be devoting to it, but I do have a list of tasks that I’d like to accomplish during this marathon, which is aimed at developing blog content. Here’s what I want to work on:

  • Draft two posts for the LA Moms Blog, and select pictures to go with them. Since I have a twice-a-month posting commitment there, this is actually my first priority, and I hope it helps that I have a couple of ideas in my folder to get me started.
  • Work on Blogging Quest posts – will probably be at least 2; goal is to have ready to post next week
  • Set up drafts for my next few book reviews, including necessary links, so all that’s needed will be my comments and ratings once I finish the reading.
  • Write Weekend Assignment and Weekly Geeks posts for next week, once the topics are posted (note: task is dependent on whether I’m interested in the topics)
  • Start draft post re: common themes and concepts in The Unit and Never Let Me Go (BONUS: Prepare review of The Unit to post next week – dependent on finishing the book!)

I may not post many progress updates, since I’d rather actually work on this stuff. Updates may be on Twitter rather than here, and will be tagged #bloggiesta – but there will be a final update/wrap-up post here on Sunday.

  • Sounds like you've got a good handle on what you'd like to do. I'm thrilled that you are participating and good luck to you!

  • Natasha – Since I'm at the office today and we have my stepkids with us this weekend, I didn't want to over-commit :-). Hopefully I can get through most of this, AND check out some of the mini-challenges!

    Thanks for hosting this!

  • Good luck!

  • setting goals is the first step toward meeting them! Good luck.

  • Kathy (Bermudaonion) and Daisy – Thanks, ladies! I'll need it :-).

  • good luck with your goals.

  • I don't think I'll do too many update posts either, I'd rather just do it on Twitter. I think I'll cross stuff off on my original post though — it makes me happy to see lists getting crossed off ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Serena – Thanks. I'm already thinking I may have been a little overly ambitious :-).

    Kim – I'm probably going to do the same thing. My wrap-up post will basically be this post, with notes.

  • This bloggiesta thing is MUCH easier now that I've gotten work out of the way!

    Good luck with your list!

  • Jill (Softdrink) – Yeah, I'm noticing that too :-). I can't spend all day tomorrow on it, though – my family might notice.

    I just finished my first task, though!

  • I haven't yet read your wrap up post, but I've been enjoying following the tweets on Twitter as everyone works on their blog goals. I didn't take part, but I did manage to write a review. And I started on next week's Sunday Salon post, my retrospective. That was completely by accident though. I jumped a week ahead without realizing it and was sure this was the last Sunday of the month. I almost posted in anyway, but decided to hold off.

  • Wendy (Literary Feline) – I probably would have waited too. You had a Salon post for today anyway, and I like having stuff in reserve.
