Ole! Bloggiesta Is Here!

This is my first Bloggiesta and I am very excited about participating.  I have given a lot of thought to what I would like to accomplish and these are my goals:

1- Write reviews of the books I have read and not written anything about. 
2- Clean up my tags.  Added meta tags successfully despite sweating hands when I was adding them to my blogs html.  I expected the whole blog to just disappear, but it didn't. 
3- My about me and about this blog need some major work, and policies need to be added, such as review, disclosure and privacy,
4- Clean up and update challenges
5- I need to back up my blog and organize the flash drive I keep all blog related information on
6- Deal with copyright and licensing issues
7- Maybe create a Facebook page for my blog

Mini-Challenges I am going to do include
1- Setting Goals - Amy from My Friend Amy
2- Designing your own Buttons/Banners Callista from SMS Book Reviews
4- 10 Things Bloggers Should Not Do Hannah from Word Lily

Maybe I will do other things, but I think for now these are the most important. 

So, it's time to party with Bloggiesta!!

Thanks for Natasha at Maw Books for hosting this party.


  1. These are fantastic goals! I know I have a lot of work to do on my blog and I'm ashamed to say I usually even forget to add a label to my posts!! Good luck - I look forward to future posts about your progress!

  2. Those look like good goals. I admire all of you bloggers doing your goals.

    I shall sit in an easy chair this weekend and watch you all. Almost as aerobic as watching a sports match!

  3. Fantastic job Alex! Thank you for joining the Bloggiesta. I hope you accomplish much.

  4. Those links are very helpful. I really ought to do this challenge too but I haven't caught up on the comment challenge yet so it's not likely I could do this as well. Must come back and take it on next!

  5. Thanks, everyone, for your comments and encouragement. I find it is a lot, but I clear this weekend for housekeeping on the computer instead of the house.

  6. Alex, I included you in my Saturday Thank-You's
