Bloggiesta Spring 2014 goals!
I'm joining Bloggiesta for the Spring 2014 event!

What's Bloggiesta? you ask. Excellent question. Allow me to let the fine folks behind this event explain...
In short, Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing. Our awesome mascot Pedro (Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize) is ready to break out the nachos, enchiladas, drinks, mariachi music and whack a pinata or two! It’s nothing short of an awesome fiesta! - (from the Bloggiesta About page - and what a fine page it is!)
Although I've followed along with what others did for past Bloggiestas, this will be my first time participating. My goals are fairly simple and mostly revolve around Bout of Book 10 (TEN!) which is coming in May.

Bout of Books
  • Draft posting schedule for BoB 10
  • Draft pre-BoB posts (call for help, call for experts, sign up, schedule, goals)
  • Draft BoB daily posts (days 1-7, wrap-up, grand prize winner)
  • update dates on BoB website, remove links for anything BoB 9.0 related
If I have time once those tasks are complete Since all those tasks are complete, I'll play with my Kelly Apple site

Kelly Apple
  • Draft newsletters for future releases (books 7, 8, 9, 10)
  • Draft release day posts for the blog - Done through April
  • Draft cover and blurb reveals for future books - Done through April
  • Brainstorm for non-release blog ideas
If I make it through all THAT Now, I'll work on this site

Reading the Paranormal
  • Draft posts for author requested reviews
  • Brainstorm and write Saturday posts for April/May
 And that's about it.
