TSS: Bloggiesta Winter ‘11 round-up

The Sunday Salon.com

My TSS post today is doubling as a re-cap for what I have gotten done during the weekends Bloggiesta.

blogiesta

  • Write up template posts for all books planned for the year
  • Organise covers folders
  • Write book basket post
  • Write some rainy day posts
  • Decide and draft 4 weekend cooking posts (I’ve Decided but not started the drafting)
  • Comment on all the Nordic Challenge Review Posts that have come in so far
  • Research/write posts for Nordic Challenge
  • Clean up and re-organize GR
  • Write review for Vindication (started)
  • Try and figure out how to make a template post in Live (isn’t an option today)
  • Check out mini-challenges
  • Check over About page and make any necessary changes (No changes necessary)
  • Update Book Review page
  • Find and catalogue pictures to use in blogposts
  • Organise my sidebar
  • Organise my labels
  • READ so that I have something to blog about
  • As you can see I didn’t really manage to get any of the writing posts done. I am still suffering badly from the thesis-from-hell induced writing block that has been plaguing me of late. I am hoping that this will lift in the next few days, especially since, due to my uni being stupid my course load will be less this semester than I had planned. No matter which courses I do end up being able to take this semester I have decided to take a break from school in the autumn. I hope that less academic writing will help in the writing for pleasure department. I am still pleased with what I did manage to accomplish, especially the amount of reading I got done. I am now ahead in War & Peace having just finished Part One. I’m really enjoying it and so I wanted to keep reading. It will also take the pressure off if I should fall behind at some point.

    I did do Beth Fish Reads Mini-challenge in that I cleaned up amongst my tags. I still have some work to do with it but I made a good start. I will continue doing it during the year, as it takes forever to do some of the changes I want to do.

    I have decided on the topics for some of my rainy day posts, amongst others I want to write a post based on Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelves mini-challenge on organizing your books. I’ve just not had time this weekend to finish organizing my books. I did it last year but I’ve got new books and I’ve had to do some re-organizing.

    Well, you certainly didn't do nothing, even if it wasn't as much as you'd hoped for. It was well worth the time and you can look back at a successful Bloggiesta.

    Those posts will come, or not (and does that really matter).

    Congrats on finishing Bloggiesta! Don't dismiss the tasks that you did accomplish: remember that every task counts! I found it very hard to do so much blog-oriented work in a long sit, and highly admire those that really spent hours and hours on their blogs.
