105 Ways to Give a Book

Bloggiesta Results

While Bloggiesta may not have solved all my bloggy problems, the weekend did get me on the right track. I only ended up spending fourteen hours on the challenge, which was less than I had hoped for. However, I did accomplish most of my goals.

I did finish my comments for the Comment Challenge, where I’ve been visiting the blogs of the participants. I made notes on my library books and returned them. I finished the notes on the Cybils picture books and have them packed and ready to send out. I went through my MotherReader email and deleted loads of emails. The ones that remain aren’t all that scary to deal with either. I looked at five of the mini-challenges, but I think I only officially participated in two.

I wish I could have done more, but I realized that I don’t like too much time spent on the “working” aspect of the blog. And when it’s something I feel like I have to do, then it becomes work. But in tackling the projects this weekend, I thought of some better strategies for doing the working aspects, so hopefully I can carry through on that.

Thanks to Natasha at Maw Books for organizing the event. See you next year!

I was working on the comment challenge when I got a surprise virus. Not sure which of the blogging sites gave it to me. was taking them off your list. I hear Twitter had a problem with this virus too and I had twitter open.
Howsomeever...If a message pops up on your screen and takes over saying Microsoft security alert. Your Computer has been attacked, DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING. Turn off your computer immediately and pray. I am now virus free but it took the rest of the night and half the morning and excellent help from my SuperGeek

I'm glad I did Bloggiesta. It's funny... I don't like working on or posting about those nuts and bolts, behind-the-scenes blog related stuff either, but it sure does feel great to have gotten so much done!
