Bloggiesta Time!

I have to work tomorrow, but I decided to spend sometime working on my blog this weeknd and join in on the Bloggiesta, hosted by Maw Books. The goal of Bloggiesta is to spend time working on your blog. I'm not sure how much time I can devote because of work, but I'm going to try to work on my blog and read this weekend-we'll see how much I can get done.

I'm planning on writing some long due reviews of books I read last year, clean up my reader, and I'll probably work on some of the mini-challenges. Have fun if you're taking part!

Friday-4:30-7:00-Read through reader, 8:30-10:00-Finish up reading blogs and clean out reader and organize blogs
Total time Friday: 4 hrs.

Saturday-8:30-11:00-Work on blog postings, realized all my cleaning up of my reader yesterday didn't work, so cleaned reader again, I also did some mini challenges. I did the old challenge from Bookish Ruth about grading your blog, which was very cool! I also worked on the challenge from Jackie at Farm Lane Books about backing up your blog.
Total Time Saturday: 2.5 hrs.

Total Bloggiesta Time: 6.5 hrs.
