Monday Maunder: January 2015 Mini-Bloggiesta Wrap-Up

What a wonderful, productive week and weekend!

On Friday, I posted that I would be participating in the latest edition of Bloggiesta.  Let's revisit my list of things to do with some additions as well as some notes on each . . .
  • Back-up Blog -- DONE!
  • Back-up Template -- DONE!
  • Update Books Read in 2015 -- DONE!  (You can view it here.)
  • Update A-Z Review Index -- DONE!  (You can view it here.)
  • Update Book Bloggers International Blog Index -- DONE!  (This was one of the items that I added to my list over the weekend.  You can view it here.)
  • Update Book Bloggers International Guest Post Index -- DONE!  (This was the other item that I added to my list over the weekend.  I was on a roll.  You can view it here.)
  • Clean Out TO READ Notebook -- Did't even get this one started.
  • Clean Out Email -- DONE!  (My inbox was emptied and I cleaned up my account in general, increasing my available space by 20%!)
  • Catch up on Feedly -- DONE!  (All caught up ... for now!)
  • Schedule Wordless Wednesday Posts -- Nope, not even started.
  • Write & Schedule Reviews -- Still have 9 books that I need to write reviews for.

I had some unexpected plans come up on Saturday and didn't get to work on my list at all.  Today, proved to not be very productive either.  BUT, I would definitely consider my Bloggiesta weekend a success!!  I will actually be continuing to work on this list throughout the week, and will hopefully be able to cross off those final items on the list.

In other news, I finished reading The Maze Runner trilogy this last week and started reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.  I have a few options of what to read next, but I am not sure which one I will be in the mood for.  I will keep you posted in next week's ramblings!

Did you participate in Bloggiesta this last weekend?  How did you do?  What are you currently reading in the midst of blogging updates?


  1. Congrats on all you accomplished! Enjoy the week.

    1. Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow ... Thank you! And, same to you!

  2. Congratulations on a successful Bloggiesta! I wanted to participate, but got hit pretty hard by the flu and am just now getting back on my feet. I'm curious about your To Read notebook and what's in there? Is it a list of your TBR books or something else?

    Have a great week!

    1. Alexia561 ... Thank you!! I hope you are feeling better these days. I saw on FB that you weren't feeling well.

      As for the To Read notebook ... it is a notebook in Evernote that I save articles to read later, oftentimes because I am scrolling through FB or Twitter on the run. I save them in my To Read notebook for when I have more time ... sadly, I'm way behind!!

  3. Congratulations!! I think it was a highly successful Bloggiesta for you!
