Bloggiesta To-Do List


Gah! It's already that time again?! It's a good thing Bloggiesta is such a fun event! Okay, priorities. I need a To-Do List.

Probably the highest priority for me this Bloggiesta will be hosting a Twitter Party on Saturday, March 28 at 2 PM. This is my first time hosting one of these! I really hope I don't screw it up...

Okay, okay. Focusing on my To-Do List, specifically for sprucing up my blog and making some changes that I've had on the back-burner for a while.

1) Add a page with my review policy (including an explanation of my rating system).
2) Decide if I should focus on certain genres or continue to do somewhat of a mash-up of all.
3) Do a video review of a video game or a recipe.*
4) Look into blogging tools that help with cross-posting and starting using one of them.

This is kind of a short To-Do List, yes, but some of these things are big projects (for me) and I work full time, so I need a shorter list.

I will be doing all that I can to make sure that I get to every single Twitter Party and I will do everything in my power to make sure that the Twitter Party I am hosting** goes smoothly and is lots of fun for everyone. I really do enjoy Twitter parties with other bloggers and with other readers!

Best of luck to all in completing their To-Do Lists!



*This will probably "force" me to work on a YouTube channel, which I've also had on the back-burner for a REALLY long time.
**Which is a big deal for a small time blogger like myself!

  1. I have tried Twitter chatting, but I have a lot to learn about how that works effectively. I understand that one of the mini-challenges will address this event...which seems so easy for all of you youngsters...LOL.

    Great list!

    Here's my BLOGGIESTA POST

  2. I have absolutely no idea what I want to put on my to-do list. Zero idea.

  5. Good luck with your goals! I still haven't tackled doing a vlog and don't think I ever will because I'm pretty shy. You're definitely braver than I am, and bet you do great! Good luck, and good luck with the Twitter Party! I'm going to do my best to attend every party, as they're usually fast-paced and fun!

    1. I can be painfully shy as well. But a vlog has been on the backburner of my brain for so long and I've received so much encouragement to do so.

  6. Great goals! I actually forgot to mention adding a page on my own list, oh well. Anyway, good luck with the Twitter party and vlog!

  7. I'm hoping to make your Twitter chat, and I'm sure you'll be great! I hope you figure out the cross-posting deal. That would definitely come in handy for us all ;) Good luck!

  8. I agree, that shortlist will be a lot of work. I plan to attend your Twitter chat, if I don't go see Insurgent with my niece. Happy Bloggiesta!

    1. I keep hearing good things about Insurgent. I never had an interest in the book after reading Divergent. Does that make me a bad person?

  9. Good luck with your list, even a short one is amazing! Mine aren't too long but a few things on there are a few hours of work as well. :)

    1. Oh yeah, the video alone is going to take a LONG time!

  10. Great list! I'm looking forward to all the Twitter parties, too. But I'll miss Saturday's :-( due to a family obligation. I'm sure it will go great for you!

    1. No worries! I'll have to miss a Twitter Party as well because I'll be at work.

  11. Wasn't the Twitter chat a lot of fun today?! I wish you the best of luck on all of your goals. I didn't know you were hosting one of the Twitter chats?! I hope to make it.

    1. Thanks! I always have fun participating in Twitter parties, but hosting seems a little daunting.

  12. I think your list is great, it doesn't matter how long it is. :) I'm sure you'll do well hosting the Twitter chat, I'll definitely try to be there for it. <3 I already missed the first one, slipped my mind. I'm also participating in Bloggiesta, this is my first time.

    1. I keep forgetting about mini-challenges! Your list is definitely more comprehensive than mine.

  13. That actually sounds like quite a bit, mucking around with video can be very time consuming. All the best for leading the Twitter chat, a challenge in itself.

    1. Thanks! I'm thinking of having my husband edit the video to save me time and so I don't have to listen to my own voice.

  14. I love that you set goals that you know you can get accomplished this week. Great job!

    I've been thinking about a youtube channel for awhile too. I just don't know if I can do it!

    1. The biggest thing I keep hearing about starting a YouTube channel is to just start posting videos. Once you get started on that, it gets relatively easier.

  15. Looking forward to the Twitter party...today's was fun! As far as the cross-posting, you might look into IFTTT (If This, then That). I just started using it and so far it's saving me a pile of time. You make "recipes" to fit your needs and they automatically take care of things for you. Good luck!!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look that up!

  16. I think hosting a twitter chat is HUGE and terrifying! Good luck with that, wish I could be there but won't be able to get online this weekend. As far as the number 2 on you to do list, I really prefer a wide range of genres, but that is my personal take. I like to read a variety of books and like finding other people who do too.

    1. Thanks! No worries about not being able to attend. I won't be able to attend all of them either. And I like a variety, but I clearly have more fun with some genres than others. :)

  17. Hey! I'm here to give your blog some feedback! I love the purple. My favorite color. You have hardly anything on your tabs or sidebar! How do you do that? Is it because it's just reviews here? Maybe? I do think you could have a graphic in your header and that would be awesome. Your owl! It needs to be up there bigger and prominent! Let me know how I can help with your Twitter chat. Do you have questions ready and such? I hope to be there, but I'm getting my hair cut just before so here's hoping I'm done in time to join in!

  18. Stopping by with some blog feedback! Love the purple, as it's one of my favorite colors too! I don't see any follow buttons aside from Google+, so maybe add those? I usually look for Twitter and Facebook buttons, as well as a way to follow via Bloglovin or other RSS. Have you thought about adding an About Me page? I know a lot of people like those, but I prefer the post archive like you already have so I can get an idea of your tastes.

    Looking forward to your Twitter chat! Good luck!

  19. Popping by with feedback - lucky you we're all purple lovers :-)

    Unlike Suey I prefer a clean header, but it comes down to individual tastes and this is your blog so you should make it so it makes you happy!

    Since your focus is your posts, perhaps you could make the post column larger as you have a lot of blank space around the outside.

    Good luck with the rest of your to do list - Bloggiestsa has been a great way to meet new bloggers :-)

  20. I can't wait to join in on the Twitter Party. It's my first time.

    Good luck!
