Bloggiesta: El Extremo!

Early this morning, Bloggiesta came to an end.  Sadly, I did not get as much accomplished as I would have liked, but the important thing is that I did get a few very important things completed!  Let's briefly revisit what my list entailed and where I ended up with each . . .

  1. Emails, Emails, Emails:  I started at 127 yesterday morning.  Today I stand at 86.
  2. Google Reader:  Sadly, I did not even touch my Reader and it still stands at 1000+.
  3. Comments:  I did get caught up on my own blog comments and did comment on a few of my favorite haunts.  As you can see from my Google Reader, however, I have a long way to go!!
  4. Template Updates:  DONE!!!  I am really loving my new design!!  This is where I spent the bulk of my time and I think it was completely worth it!
  5. Blog Posts:  I didn't get very far on scheduling blog posts either.  Oh well!
  6. Sunday Synopsis: DONE!!  As you can tell I posted this last night announcing my new design!
  7. Wish List:  Did not even touch!  :(
  8. Index:  Did not even touch this either!  :(
To make myself feel better about my accomplishments (because I felt that yesterday was VERY productive), here is what else I was able to complete . . .
  1. Laundered every piece of clothing in the house!
  2. Completed compilation of Cooking with Kids recipes for The Book Chook Cook Book!
  3. Reading & Relaxation!!  :)
Considering that I only spent a mere 5+ hours devoted to Bloggiesta the entire weekend, I will say that I felt I did get quite a few things done.  Thankfully, Natasha hosts this fabulous event twice a year.  I'm hoping the January date will bring more success and completed tasks!


  1. I love your new header. It is gorgeous! I struggle with the e-mail as well. It is hard for me to keep it out of the hundreds. Great job for only five hours.

  2. I think you did a lot, especially on your busy schedule.

  3. Your header is inspiring! I didn't get half as much done as I wanted to this weekend.

  4. Love the new header! I liked the old grey one, but the new one with the tree is gorgeous! Great job!
