Bloggiesta: The Finish Line

blogiesta Wow, what a weekend! I didn’t get everything done on my list but I did make a huge dent. One thing that I found while going through and updating posts were typos O_o

  7. Update my pages (update my Review Policy, add an About Me page)

As you can see, I kept adding to the list. I would see someone else’s Bloggiesta list and think “oh! I need to do that too!”. I didn’t keep track of how many hours I spent participating in Bloggiesta but if I had to guess, it would probably be about a total of 12-15 hours total, maybe more. I am exhausted. My shoulders ache. But I feel like I got a lot accomplished and I got the opportunity to meet new bloggers!
