I have been wanting to do some maintenance on some of my blog pages, but have been procrastinating for months. So when I read a blog post earlier this week by Runner Sami about a virtual blogging event called “Bloggiesta“, I immediately signed up to participate!
The event is hosted by Natasha at Mah Books Blog. In a nutshell, its a weekend devoted to working on your blog…hence the mascot, “Pedro” – Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize.
At the time I signed up, I didn’t realize that most of the participants are part of the books community, which I am not a part of (although I wish I read more!). But heck, we’re all bloggers so I’m participating anyway. Most of the blogs I read are about healthy living, running, etc, so it has been a nice change to discover a whole new blogging community.
I’ve had to change my weekend plans around a bit (more on this later), so I’ve been able to spend the morning working on updating some pages like this one.
Its been great to follow the Bloggiesta Twitter feed and read articles on blogging advice and best practices. I haven’t done this in a while so its been interesting to read some new things that have been written.
Okay, back to work – I have lots of widgets to research, posts to write and new blogs to discover!
