Bloggiesta!

Maw Books is once again Bloggiesta, and it has started!

So, what are my goals this weekend?

Read 1000 posts on my blog reader (sadly, this is a task that can be repeated a few times.)
Review 10 books (this can also be repeated)
Preschedule 10 reviews (as can this)
I live my life on a spreadsheet, especially my reading/blogging life. I'm still working on getting my 2010 spreadsheets ready to go, so let's work on that.
I also have a few other minor tasks that need to get done, so yeah...

Let's get to work!

I am curious how you use spreadsheets with blogging. Would you share?

I'll probably do a whole post about my blog spreadsheets this weekend, but it's just a way to keep track of everything. One just has columns for date I read a book, title, a place to check if I've written the review yet, and a column for notes such as when a review is scheduled to run, if it's for a challenge, if I haven't reviewed it but wrote notes while reading etc. When a review posts, I delete the row.

good luck with Bloggiesta. I've signed up for the first time this year.

You're going to read 1000 posts or just scan and read the ones you want to pare down 1000 posts?

Oh and please do a post about your spreadsheets, maybe you can post it for others to use???

I am interested in the blogging spreadsheet as well. I looked into an d am working on the mini challenge on spreadsheets and I am currently applying that as well.

Thanks and happy Bloggiesta!

Ok, this weekend with definitely have a post about my many spreadsheets, with screen shots, so you can see what I'm talking about.

Callista, so my blog reader currently stands about about 2400 unread posts. I would skim and just read the ones I want to get through them all, but I always end up reading the majority of them anyway. My reader is just too full of interesting people.

I'm supposed to be working on the bloggiesta, but I have been caught at your blog for the last 30 minutes! I'm a new fan, and can't wait to check out the spreadsheet!
