Bloggiesta Starting Line

It's Bloggiesta Time!

So, here are my goals.

1. Review books. I have 57 books to review. I'll be happy if I get 10 done.

2. Deal with my Google Reader. This mainly means geting caught up on blog posts. I have over 6191 unread blogposts (OMG I KNOW.) So, I will read as many as possible, but the hard part will be heavy use of the "mark as read" button. I also want to clean out my stars. Most are books that I want to read, so I want to write at least 5 "reviews that made me want to read the book" posts. Others are videos I wanted to watch or things I wanted to pin when I was reading my reader when I couldn't watch videos or pin things.

3. Change domain hosts.

4. Work on upcoming secret blog project-- buy domain name, work on layout, pick at least 20 themes, sketch out at least 10 blog posts.

5. Clean off the bedroom bookshelf-- specifically, the library books cubby (I have too many checked out, I'll never read them all) and to-review cubby (Review and move!) and the ARC cubby (which ones am I actually going to get to?)

6. Tag old posts. (Um, this probably isn't going to happen, but it's something I want to do, so let's put it on the list, ok?)

7. Try again to make a video or two for Library Noise.

8. Write new storytime intro posts and update the existing ones on Library Noise.

9. Write that post I gotta write.

10. SLJ round up.

11. Do that review app.

Obviously, not all of that's going to happen, but that's the list of stuff I *want* to do, so let's see how much we can get done, ok?

Links to Amazon are an affiliate link. You can help support Biblio File by purchasing any item (not just the one linked to!) through these links. Read my full disclosure statement.

Oh no...I don't pity you on the domain host change. It was a nightmare when I tried to change mine! *fingers crossed it goes well*

Good luck on your list! :)

I think you must have the largest backlog of review books that I've heard of! I hope you get your 10 done.

Google reader I skipped this time, as I have updated it recently. The Mark as Read button is very useful!

Good luck with your tasks.

Amanda-- now you have me scared and thinking about not doing it. (Also, now that I look into it, it's going to be a bigger hassle than I thought, BUT, I have issues with my current provider.)

Judith--Ha! I was all happy because this is actually the smallest review backlog I've had for a bloggiesta! Luckily, with every bloggiesta they keep getting smaller (my numbers have been 75, 64, 61, and now 57, which is *Actualy* 56 because I found a review that I had forgotten that I'd written, but not posted.) So, after a few more bloggiestas, I'll be more manageable? Part of my issue is that I'm committed to reviewing pretty much every book I read and I'm much better about writing timely reviews NOW, but I still have a huge backlog from, like, 2008. OIY VEY.
