Bloggiesta Next Weekend, not there then you’re square!

Bloggiesta: Be there or be square!

bloggiestaWhen is Bloggiesta? The date is Friday, June 19th beginning at 8am, Saturday the 20th and ending Sunday the 21st at 8am (8am your time, wherever you are). That is a total of 48 hours, of which you should aim high for a total of 18-24 hours spent on the challenge.

What is Bloggiesta? Well it is a special weekend for bloggers from any genre (ie. mommy, movie review, tech, lit, any blog on the planet), to spend some time doing maintenance on our blogs and social networking sites. The post on exactly how to join, and what exactly you need to be doing is located here at Maw Books (the event coordinator). The button you see to the top left is what brands this challenge so make sure to steal that and put it on your blog with your post detailing what it is you need to get done on your blog!

For optimal participation keep checking back to the post on Maw’s Book Blog and use Twitter Search to follow and use the hash tag for the event #bloggiesta

Now with no further ado, here is the list of things I want to get done this weekend in no particular order (to track my progress check back to this post strike through items are completed):

  1. Business cards designed and ordered from Moo
  2. Add a related posts plugin.
  3. Get Comment Luv to work.
  4. Work on my Myspace getting it all current.
  5. Find new cool people to follow on Twitter.

This list may grow, and I am here to help with anything I have expertise in such as design, how to code a cool post or template for a post, or anything else you see around my blog. So I may have some questions for you ladies and gents in your area of expertise also.

Let’s have fun!

    Whoo hooo!!! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! A related posts plugin is what I need to get done too! I’ve tried several but haven’t committed to any of them yet.

    See you there! I’m going to look at moving my blog to self-hosted WordPress. I’m not actually going to move it, just try to figure it out.

    I’ve got some smaller things planned as well.

    I need to re-order my business cards from Moo. Thanks for the reminder!

    I’m thinking about using Comment Luv on my site. I’ve found instructions for using it with Blogger, but they’re rather complicated (WordPress looks easier but I’m not sure that I want to move my blog) …they’re probably a little too complicated if I want to do anything else for the Bloggiesta challenge. I might leave that for another weekend.
