Okay, so I did good work for Bloggiesta, but not excellent work. I’m also not sure I’m done yet, but it seemed like an update was in order.
How sad is it that my note for the first hour simply says “reviews” and I have no recollection of what reviews I was doing?
My second hour I spend cleaning up my blogroll a bit. I removed some blogs that aren’t posting and added a few that I never got around to adding. I don’t know if anyone looks at blogrolls anymore, but I’m not ready to part with mine. It doesn’t have everything I follow on my blogreader, so I updated that too. It was actually in pretty good shape, though I suspect the Comment Challenge will see me adding blogs back to it.
My third hour I spent on some of the mini-challenges. I checked my copyright info, corrected post labels, added to my cheat sheet, and dumped dead links. Then I took a break for dinner and Lost episodes with the family. (We ended with the one where Sayid shoots Ben. Remember watching that and just going nuts?)
Last night I spent two hours on updating member links at KidLitosphere Central. Twenty minutes of that was beating myself up for neglecting it for so long. I also spent an hour clearing my Google Reader, though I did star a fair number of posts to go back to when I have more time. (Isn’t fooling yourself like that a hoot?)
I had high hopes for today, but so far I’ve only given two hours to Bloggiesta one for typing reviews that I had scribbled in a notebook and one for cleaning up blog-related emails. With only eight hours so far, I’m hoping to come back tonight after more Lost.
Edited to Add: I was able to do some blog reading, commenting, and email culling for two hours tonight. So my total time is ten hours, with five mini-challenges, twenty comments, and some new ideas in my head. I really loved having Bloggiesta in January, especially when it was too cold to want to leave the house anyway.
In other news, the Comment Challenge is rockin’ with the crossover of the Bloggiesta and the promotion by the KidLit/YA book bloggers. So, thanks!!!
