Today is the kick off of Bloggiesta! I’ve been wanting to participate in this awesome blogger-fest for years, but the timing has never been right. At last, the stars have aligned!
Here’s my to-do-list for the next 4 days:
- write (at least!) two reviews
- update Goodreads reviews
do at least one mini challenges start my blog journal(<- mine is awesome, FYI!) visit some of the other bloggers participating
- take part in at least one twitter chat
clear up my inbox and answer some emails!! update my challenge post
For the first time in EVER, I can’t wait to get started on my to-do list! Wish me luck, people.
Mini-challenge: Productivity/Organization tips
Try out a blogging calendar
I never really liked the idea of these, as it felt too confining. But then I gave it a go on Google Docs and it worked wonders! This was primarily because it gave me incentive to schedule some posts! Now, I’ll admit that it doesn’t work completely perfectly – I find it is too easy to just not CHECK my calendar. So… I am working on making my own printable template. There are a bunch out there if you don’t want to make your own – give one a go!
Don’t force a review
Some books won’t inspire you enough for a review – and that’s OK. Yes, it’s OK even if you got the book specifically FOR review. That’s just life. Besides, if you have to force a review out, your readers will be able to tell! Lose-Lose.
