My Bloggiesta To Do List

If this is your first Bloggiesta and you are not sure where to begin, the moderators have provided a Sample To Do List and a list of Past Mini-Challenges to inspire you!

When the event goes live, there will be a list of new challenges to choose from as well!

One thing that’s new this Bloggiesta is the opportunity to sign up for a Bloggiesta Mastermind Group. Sounds like an exciting opportunity that you won’t want to miss!

Here is what I am planning to accomplish this week:

  • Sign up for a Bloggiesta Mastermind Group.
  • Network with other Bloggiesta participants.
  • Attend one or more Twitter Parties.
  • Write three or more reviews.
  • Organize my workspace. I am currently being overrun with books!

Once I see the challenge list and the week progresses, I will modify the list as needed!

What are your goals for this Bloggiesta? Be sure to leave a comment if you’re participating – or thinking of joining – so I can stop by and cheer you on!

Stay In Touch!

      Hi Janet, please do join us at Bloggiesta!

      Even though a lot of the stuff is book blogger oriented, a lot of the stuff also applies to bloggers in general and there is a treasure trove of information in those past challenges!

      Have a great week and happy spring to you! 🙂

  2. Jenni Elyse says:

    Looks like you plan to have a fun week, especially with networking with other bloggers. Good luck with all your goals!

  3. Thank you for sharing this event. I need to work on my blog, but I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the to-do’s. I think this event can help me make a better plan of action, so I’ll go join now. 🙂

    Great list! I hope to visit throughout the event, to see what you’ve done. Thanks for sharing…and here is my BLOGGIESTA STARTING LINE POST

    Hi, I went to Bloggiesta to sign up, but I am confused about how I do that. Do I just link up my blog post? Or is there an actual place to sign up?
    Thanks for writing about it. I never heard of it, and I do a weekly book review on my blog,

      Hi Janet,

      On the Bloggiesta sign up post, which I am listing below, link up your blog post that announces your participation in the event and your goals so that other participants can stop by and visit:

      Then, when you back to the main Bloggiesta blog, you will see updated posts listing events such as the Twitter parties, challenges, etc.

      You don’t have to participate in ANY of the events – you can join and simply do your own thing – or you can join and pick as few or as many of the challenges or events as you’d like to do – or you can use the time to connect with other people – it’s really up to you!

      I will try to provide you feedback for the “I Need Help” challenge later this week! 🙂

      • Thank you for the help. I got linked and I am doing the mini challenge with I am getting some comments and a bit of help. Look forward to your feedback!

        Looks like you are getting some great feedback from the Bloggiesta participants on your challenge Janet – I just left my feedback for you as well! 🙂

    I’m wondering if I should join a Mastermind Group, I feel like I’m in a lot of groups already and books aren’t my primary focus. Best of luck Bloggiesta-ing this week! Always glad to connect with you!

  7. Mimi says:

    I SO wish I could do this! There’s just no way I can with work. =( If they do this at some other point in the year, I’d love to participate. I could handle doing some work on my blog with the support of other bloggers! Hope you get a lot accomplished!

      Hi Mimi,

      Bloggiesta runs several times throughout the year, and there are week-long and mini-bloggiestas – so even if you can’t join in this time, hopefully you can join in for a future event!

      Thanks so much for stopping by. When you have time, do check out the challenges. I have them bookmarked for reference as they are fabulous! 🙂

  8. Maggie says:

    Your list reminded me to sign up for a mastermind group, which I just finished doing! 😀 Good luck this week and happy Bloggiesta!

  9. Steph says:

    Good luck with all of your goals, happy bloggiesta!

    Good luck with your goals. Starting small and adding goals as you go is a great way to get plenty done.

    I wish I could have participated too but I was so busy with the Slice of LIfe Challenge for March. Thanks for sharing on the #LMMLinkup last week.
