Bloggiesta is a 3-day blog-a-thon where you try to complete as many things on your blog to-do list as you can. I’ve had an ongoing to-do list ever since the last Bloggiesta ended. Here is everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, on my list:
- Catch up on writing reviews (10).
- Format upcoming reviews (5).
- Format and schedule all promo posts that I have received material for.
- Post reviews and update NetGalley.
- Change RSS feed footer.
- Back up blog and update import to WP.
- Update WLW templates on laptop.
- Check for and fix dead links.
- Catch up on cross posting reviews on Goodreads, LibraryThing, and Pinterest.
- Update review index pages (Reviews by Title and Reviews by Author).
- Update all of my 2012 reading challenge posts (Outdo Yourself, Men in Uniform, TBR, ebook, 100+) to include all books read to date and to go up a level if need be.
- Write up 2013 Reading Challenge sign-up posts and review link up posts: Outdo Yourself, Men in Uniform, Nicholas Sparks (it’s coming back!), and Romantic Suspense (new one!).

- Figure out a tagline for the blog. I have the main idea; I need to make it sound snazzy.
- Go thru all blog Pages and update if need be.
- Update About page.
- Update old review posts to current format.
- Replace all old banners (Month in Review, About the Author, About the Book, Excerpt, Giveaway, Buy on Amazon, Add to Goodreads) with new banners.
- Go thru all old blog posts and reformat as needed.
- Figure out what the heck is going on with Feedburner and find a replacement if necessary.

If you’re looking for a Bloggiesta mini-challenge, be sure to check out the new list of Bloggiesta mini-challenges, the list of mini-challenges from the last Bloggiesta, and the list of prior Bloggiesta mini-challenges.
I’ve got one on How to Use Pocket to Save Time. I also have one on Backing Up Your Blog, which I hosted during the last Bloggiesta. And I also did a very detailed tutorial a while back on how to make a progress bar to track your reading challenges, if that interests you.
