Summer Mini Bloggiesta 2015 Goals

 Summer Mini Bloggiesta
I'm going to be participating in the Summer Mini Bloggiesta 2015 running June 13-14. Wheeeeee!

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!)

  1. I have so much to do myself... SO MUCH! That is why I love Bloggiesta time. Good luck on your goals.

    My Bloggiesta List

  2. Oh I like the idea of drafting for the upcoming review requests - does that make you stick to a strict timeline?

    1. I schedule between 2 and 3 months out, so while I pencil the reviews in for certain dates, I have plenty of time to change things if life (or whatever) gets in the way. BUT... having set dates I want to get a review read and reviewed by does help keep me on track with keeping up with review requests.

  3. Love your list! Good Luck with your goals! I do hope you are able to finish them all! Planning ahead is a great idea!

    1. Thank you! I do love scheduling ahead!

  4. They keep piling up, don't they? Some days I wonder if there is life beyond my blog lol Good luck on slaying those goals.

    I'm about 2/4 right now. I still have my huge uncategorized pile but hopefully the content will be easier to navigate with consistent and clear categories :D

    1. Juggling several blogs makes for some interesting scheduling issues, too. LOL. But I enjoy it too much to quit.

  5. Good luck with your list! I started off with only a couple of items on my list and it keeps growing! The main thing I want to take care of is catching up with my reviews. Happy Bloggiesta!

    1. Yep, it's easy to grow that list, isn't it?
