Bloggiesta Wrap-up

Time to wrap-up this weekend's mini Bloggiesta. I'll be crossing out the tasks I completed, then go into more detail down below of what I did for each task.
  • Clean up labels/tags
  • Update Goodreads
  • Update master review spreadsheet
  • Write 1 review
  • Clean up sidebars
  • Create template and start Social Media Saturday
  • Update blogroll
Clean up labels/tags: I added tags to all of my old posts that didn't have any, deleted old tags that I no longer use, as well as deleted some older posts that are no longer relevant to this blog. Afterwards, I added the label cloud to my sidebar to make it easier for my readers to find specific posts!

Update Goodreads: This task was the one I expected to get the least amount done, and I actually got a decent amount done. I cleaned out my "to-read" shelf and deleted books I'm no longer interested in, added some of my Amazon books that I plan to read (eventually...), deleted my 2012 Debut Author Challenge shelf (since, you know, it's 2015...), and created a new shelf called "review needed" where I added books I have read but not reviewed yet. This actually added more work to my master spreadsheet task (more below) because now I have 15 new reviews to write, but it was less than I thought so yay!

Update master review spreadsheet: I finished the one outstanding review on my sheet (see below) and scheduled that for this week. I filled in all pertinent info, now I just need to add the 15 new reviews from Goodreads

Write 1 review: As mentioned above, I completed the one outstanding review on my master spreadsheet.

Clean up sidebars: I added every possible social media account you can follow my blog with, as well as moved some of the order around. I also added the label cloud from above.

Create template and start Social Media Saturday: I didn't complete the template until today, so I wasn't able to start that this week. Now that the template is finished, I hope to start that next weekend!

Update blogroll: I updated and cleaned out my blogroll.

Overall, I got a lot more done than I was expecting! I feel much better about the work I need to do to catch up on reviews, as well as fit those into real life.

How did you do? Link your posts below!
