Bloggiesta: To Do List

blogiestaWell, the start of my Bloggiesta started out with work and a siesta, but now I’m ready to go! For part of this afternoon and tomorrow I’ll be participating in Maw Books Bloggiesta, “a blogging marathon with a fiesta flair.” You can follow at the blog, or follow @bloggiesta on Twitter. I’ll be updating my blog over the next couple days about my progress.

This first post is my overly-ambitious “To Do List.” I wish I could have started earlier today, but I had to work and then I had to take a nap (it’s been an exhausting week).


I’m not actually that behind with reviews, but I am going to try to catch up on all of these over the next couple days.  Or, at minimum, get the templates for the reviews ready so I can just fill them in when I’m ready.

  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
  • Under the Banner of Heaven by John Krakauer
  • The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safon Foer
  • Rabbit, Run by John Updike

Blog Improvement Project

This is something I’ve been hosting since January (details here). I need to get ahead on writing task posts, so that’s a major part of the agenda this weekend. Feel free to comment or tweet (@kimthedork) with suggestions for BIP topics.

  • Week #11 Wrap Up
  • Week #12: Mid-Year Review
  • Week #?: Blog Post Bingo #2
  • Brainstorm new topic ideas
  • Send some e-mails about possible guest hosts

Other Blogging

And, of course, if there’s time between other things or I need a more free-form post to write, I have all sorts of other ideas and blogging maintenance floating around in my head.

  • My Infinite Summer
  • Spring Reading Thing 2009 Update
  • Sunday Salon: Happy Books?
  • What Book Should I Read in July?
  • Questions for American Gods
  • Campus Common Reader
  • Do some of the Bloggiesta Mini-Challenges (Google Reader, especially)
  • Send blogging photo picture to Cathy

Wow, it looks even more ridiculous than I thought. Oh well, I’m off to blog (finally!)

    Speaking of naps, my boys won’t go down for one. You’ve got a great list! Good luck!

    That’s a good list, and looks like you had a good start! Good luck with the rest of it! 😀

    Looks like you are doing great! I, too, loved the google reader challenge – what, folders? Really?

    Anyway, I love the title of your blog – at least your dorkiness is sophisticated 🙂

    I’m unofficially participating in the Bloggiesta. While I won’t have enough time to get reviews done, I’ll be damned if I don’t get WordPress upgraded for my two blogs. It’s been *years* since they were last upgraded, and I only needed a little extra encouragement to get this done. Wish me luck!
