This is my introductory bloggiesta post. For more information about the bloggiesta, check out the post on Maw books here. Since my blog is still in its nascent stages, I figure now is a great time to figure out my approach, etc.

I'm not sure what I'll actually accomplish, but here are some of my initial goals:

  • Decide if I want to participate in any more challenge UPDATE:  Done! See here.
  • Figure out different kinds of content I want to feature on my blog UPDATE:  Done. See my wrap-up post here.
  • Work on adding to the layout etc of the blog UPDATE:  Done for now, but I'm still not completely happy with it. UPDATE2:  I added some widgets from goodreads, and I think I'm happy for now.
  •  Organize my to read list UPdATE:  Done! Took forever, but I put my entire wishlist on goodreads. You can find it here.
  • Figure out an organizational/labeling system for my posts UPDATE:  Done! It wasn't that hard, since I don't have that many posts up yet anyway, but I'm glad I did it sooner rather than later ;)
  • Get a profile picture up UPDATE:  Done, but I'm not entirely happy with it. It'll do for now though.
  • Set up a ranking system for reviews  UPDATE:  After some thought, I've decided against instituting a rankign system at this point. This is an issue I'll revisit after I've reviewed more books and have a better idea of how I want to review them.
  • Organize my google feed reader and add some more great blogs to follow! UPDATE:  organized my feed reader, so now I can start adding blogs again...
  • to be determined...


  1. Welcome to de-lurkville! Looks like you are starting out with lots of goals. Best of luck! (Love the blog title :)

  2. Good luck with your Bloggiesta goals! Have to warn you that challenges are so much fun that you may find yourself signing up for several!

  3. welcome to the de-lurking blogosphere! I as well am starting with the Blogiesta. We can do our goals (pr as many as possible!) together.

  4. I'm starting over with a new blog at Wordpress myself, so I'm definitely finding myself in a similar boat. The thought of coming up with a labeling and organization system, much as I need to, is giving me a headache. Maybe tomorrow (ha!). Anyway, I'm glad I wandered over here during the Comment Challenge - it'll be fun to watch as your blog develops!

  5. You are just moving along with the Bloggiesta! Woo hoo! :)
