2. Update that darn Goodreads page

3. Work on my Pinterest page

4. Schedule at least 5 posts.

5. Work on my Facebook Blog Page

Bloggiesta- Accomplishments!

Bloggiesta-Finish-Line3

Another Bloggiesta has come to an end! While I did not accomplish all my goals, I did get some finished that I’ve been putting off for some time- so yay me! Plus, I have a set of tasks to continue working on in my free time. #winning!

 

Here is my goals when I started Bloggiesta!

 

This is what I accomplished:

  • Interview Archive
  • Author Spotlight Archive
  • Review Policy

 

While I’m sad that I did not manage to find time to post my review archive, the 3 tasks I accomplished were time consuming.

 

Other things I learned this weekend: how to make a button (hopefully!)

 

From my perspective, Bloggiesta was a success!
