Bloggiesta Wrap-Up

My first Bloggiesta is behind me and I had a great time participating.

I managed to:

- write a review
- create a page for Reviews by Rating
- add genre tags to my reviews and tidy the rest of the labels
- update Cat Diary posts with the new image and introduction
- visit some blogs and meet some amazing bloggers
- slightly rearrange my sidebar gadgets

I haven’t got around cross-posting (and linking) my reviews to Goodreads, but I will be doing that in the next days (or probably weeks). I might also do some of the things I learned through mini-challenges.

I would have also liked to comment and connect with other bloggers more than I did. I wish I had more time for that. I need to improve my socializing.

The best new thing I learned about is Window Live Writer (thanks to Jacinda’s mini-challenge). It seems a great tool for easier and faster blogging. Unfortunately, my laptop is on its last legs, so I am avoiding any new program downloads, but I am definitely going to try WLW when I get a new one.

Overall, I had a great time! I did a lot of things and got some ideas what I still want to do in the future.

Thanks to Suey for hosting!


  1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! Nice to "meet" you and I look forward to chatting about books.

    1. Nice to meet you, too!:) I love chatting about books!

  2. Bloggiesta was tons of fun!

    I have already started on a "To-Do" list for future bloggiesta events (or whenever I have time to do them). Your idea about updating the tags for book reviews is one of the things I wanna add to my list.

    1. I agree, it was lots of fun! I'm already making my to-do list for the work on my blog, too.

  3. You did awesome! I'm glad that you had such a great time. :) I love that you have ideas on what to do in the future ... there are always things to be done, right?

    1. You're right, the to-do list really is endless. :)

  4. I had a lot of fun, too, and I enjoyed the mini-challenges. I learned some new things.

    You accomplished a lot...congrats!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you had a good time!


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
