Bloggiesta: Vaya!!

This weekend is a Bloggiesta weekend hosted by our dear Natasha of Maw Books Blog. I have had a crazy weekend thus far, but am determined to get a lot accomplished with what I have left today. I am not sure if I am going to participate in any of the mini challenges because I simply have way too much to do on my own list of things to do, but I am definitely bookmarking a few for the future. So, what is on my list for today?
  1. Emails, Emails, Emails:  As I write this, I am currently at 127 in my inbox.  I need to drastically reduce this!
  2. Google Reader:  Sadly, I am once again behind on my Reader with 1000+ posts to read.  Need to drastically reduce this as well!
  3. Comments:  I really, really need to get caught up on my blog commenting!  I am talking about replying to comments on my own site as well as on the many others that I follow.  This should go very well with my first two tasks.
  4. Template Updates:  With Blogger's new template designer, I am going to see if I can finally get a design for my blog that I love.  I have already spent of bit of time playing with it, but we will see what I can do.
  5. Blog Posts:  I have a long list of things to get posted from reviews to a few wrap-up posts.  I am hoping to get at least a few written today.
  6. Sunday Synopsis:  I can't forget to post my weekly wrap-up before heading to bed today as well!
  7. Wish List:  I desperately need to update my wish list!  It's really getting out of hand!!
  8. Index:  I have not updated my alphabetical index in ages and really need to do this as well!
That's my LONG list and with my limited time of only today, I am not sure if I am going to even get very far.  I am going to start at the top of my list right now!

Are you bloggiesta-ing this weekend?  How successful have you been so far?


  1. I've been loving Bloggiesta this weekend! I haven't done much today...trying to go through blogs I follow for a little bit. It's so easy to get behind. Good luck in your bloggiesta-ing!!! :)

  2. Good luck accomplishing items on your to-do list today! Bloggiesta is such a great forum for making those changes that we always mean to do but never get around to doing. Have fun!

  3. Good luck! I hope you end up getting a lot done today.

  4. Mrs. Vincent . . . Thanks! I've been enjoying it so far, but am hoping to get a lot more done before I head to bed!

    Michelle . . . Thanks! I love Bloggiesta! I got so much done last time, and I know this time is not even going to compare. Thank goodness that Natasha does a couple of these a year to help keep me in line! :)

    Kristen M. . . . So far, so good! I'm just about done re-designing my site (again, but I like it much better this time around!), and I'm making a dent in my emails and comments! I've got a couple more hours of good work time, but then I'm off to bed! Hopefully in that time, I can make it over to your site and catch up on the last couple of weeks!!

  5. "...Reader with 1000+ posts to read."

    Oh gosh, I remember. The only downside to book blogging. ;)

  6. J. Kaye . . . I know!! I am always behind, especially when I find new blogs! I have my faves that I prioritize in reading, but even that doesn't always help with those numbers.
