OK, so I wasn't going to participate in Bloggiesta this year. Honestly, I don't have a ton of time to devote to it this weekend. I worked last night, I have homework and reading to do, I have friends coming over, and there's a Chicago Bears playoffs game tomorrow! How did my weekend get so full?
But I really want to work on a few things on my blog and bloggiesta really is the most perfect time to do it! I don't have a bunch of goals, but the ones I have I think are manageable in my limited time this weeked. For bloggiesta I'm going to:
-Update my review list-I haven't added several months of reivews to my master list and it really needs updating!
-Cross-post reviews on Amazon and Goodreads-I've been failing at this and need to do an update
-Write up some program and librarian posts to use for a future date
-Start putting together a reading challenge I've been thinking about for awhile
I've got to share one tip I already learned from this event-Feed Demon is a free RSS reader that lets you comment in the reader. It also sincs up with Google Reader, which is how I currently read the blogs in my reader. Instead of having to scroll through every post, it gives you a snapshot of all the posts in that folder which I love. So far it's made things a million times easier!! There's also Grease Monkey,which is an add on for Firefox that does the same thing, so I highly recommend using one. I'd heard about them before and I'm glad I finally downloaded it and started using it! Thanks to Danielle at There's a Book for the tip!
