I was so excited to see Bloggiesta be planned for the weekend of March 30 – April 1! I participated in the event in January 2011 and have been (im)patiently waiting for the next one. Well, now everyone knows what I will be doing that weekend.
What is Bloggiesta, you ask? From There’s A Book blog (one of this year’s hosts): it’s a blogging marathon devoted to ticking off items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing. Started by Natasha of Maw Books Blog, I discovered it when WordPress featured a blog about the event on the Freshly Pressed page. Even though the event is open to all bloggers, many of the participants are book bloggers who I discovered are a wonderful community to learn and share ideas about writing and blogging. The event even has its own mascot, Pedro (Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize). Mexican-themed food and drinks are optional but can be an added bonus to the event :)
Mini-challenges are part of the event. I signed up to host a mini-challenge. Fingers crossed that I’m chosen!
If you want to join in the fun, you can sign up here.
In the meantime, I will start thinking about my to-do list for the weekend. There are quite a number of improvements to this blog and my personal blog that I’m thinking about…
