The end has come. The end of my first Bloggiesta. I want to thank Natasha at Maw Books for hosting this fun event. I won’t even blame her for headache that I have had for a few hours. I put in 20.5 hours. Very little changed in what you see, but lots of important stuff got done.
Let’s start with today. I spent most of today working on the future book review posts of the 50 books you all chose for me to read. They all have links and quotes and a book photo. Seriously, that took me about 5 hours. It was during this time that my headache started. But, here I am, still typing.
Still with me? I received Beth Hoffman’s interview answers today and they’ll be posted on Friday. Even better? She’s agreed to give away 2 hardcover copies of Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt!! Sorry, getting off track.
I did complete one mini-challenge by backing up my blog. For those of you interested in this, here’s the post. I completed many reviews, lots of organization, author interview stuff (questions, requests), blogroll, category clean-up (well, I started…), pages, links, posts, emails, additions to Reader (sadly I never got to the weeding out part), and I’m sure many other things my mind can’t remember right now.
I would certainly participate again, but I would probably focus on more of the mini-challenges. I know there was lots of good information there that I just didn’t take the time to do. I plan on going back and maybe working on them later. I didn’t get around to visiting anyone else and I feel only a little bit bad about that. I decided when I signed up that that wasn’t a priority and I didn’t make it one. Maybe next time.
I do have one more thing to do before I go to bed later. I don’t know why the Google button on my sidebar doesn’t add me when someone tries. I reinstalled it, but I don’t think anything has changed. Any ideas?
