What is Bloggiesta?

Bloggiesta is an online party where you can find blog organization tips, take challenges to learn new things, and — best of all — meet some awesome bloggers!

If you are interested, post a to-do list like the one below and then link to the Spring Sign Up page. There is also more information to explore at the Bloggiesta blog.

My 2018 Bloggiesta To-Do List

  • Create a mini-challenge about blog security and post it. Blog security mini-challenge now posted.
  • Update the Bestseller Code 100 Reading Challenge Book List into October.
  • Participate in a Twitter party, particularly the one(s) on organization – well, I did go read the #bloggiesta hashtag on Twitter this morning.
  • Cross-post some reviews to GoodReads, etc. -This one will have to be done later.
  • Visit and comment on other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs If you didn’t see a comment from me either I couldn’t find your Bloggiesta post or for some reason I couldn’t post a comment. I did try.
  •  Revise this list as necessary –
  • Participate in other mini-challenges:
  1. The Labels, Categories, and Tags Mini-Challenge is something I didn’t even know I needed until I looked at my categories. Yikes! They need definitely need organizing. – Results now posted
  2. Juggling Life and a Blog has some great tips. I sometimes forget to keep a book at my side for down time. I’m too likely to check my social media instead. I need to use the time to read. Also, I keep saying I’m going to get my TBR under control. but it never seems to happens. (Now, where is the post-it note I wrote to myself about that?) (Update:  just read/listened to a wonderful article by Ann Patchett about how taking time to read can increase your ability to focus. Yes!)

Adding to my next Bloggiesta to-do list: (I’m posting these here to find when I create my next list)

  • Chapters and Charms suggested making some Tumblr-specific posts for Tumblr, which is an excellent idea I will blatantly steal and use for the next Bloggiesta.
  • Exploring new social media platforms:  I’ve noticed several bloggers have social media buttons that either I didn’t know you could have or have never heard of. I need to find out more.
  • Read X number of books and organize when to review each on a calendar.
  • Investigate making a Twitter thread

If you’re interested, I will be pinning to my Bloggiesta Wisdom Pinterest Board throughout the week.

Time to get busy.

Hope you all have a fun and productive Bloggiesta.



  1. Grace

    Blog security is a great topic! I’d love to learn more about it.

    • Roberta

      Great. Will be posting the mini-challenge soon.

  2. Erica Robyn

    Awesome goals! I can’t wait for this event to begin 🙂

  3. Ali

    Hello! Great to do list for Bloggiesta. Happy reading

  4. Steph

    Wonderful list and thank you for the mini challenge!

    • Roberta

      Re: the mini-challenge – it seems like everyone’s blogs are so different it is hard to create a one-size fits all security plan. Good luck with your goals.

  5. Michelle @Because Reading

    Happy Bloggiesta!
    Great List! Good Luck with all your goals!

    • Roberta

      Thanks. You, too.

  6. Berls

    You’re doing great so far – already have 1 mini-challenge down! Woot! I know what you mean about keeping a book with me… I always have one via kindle, but I’m far too likely to do the social media thing too. And honestly, that’s usually just a mindless time suck than real interaction. Reading would be way more useful! Happy bloggiesta and good luck with your goals 🙂

    • Roberta

      Thanks Berls for making this such a fun Bloggiesta.

  7. I love the idea of making a next Bloggiesta to-do list. I ended up getting side-tracked with my wisdom teeth being removed so didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted to. Oh well 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck with your Camp NaNo project, as well!

    • Roberta

      Sorry to hear about your wisdom teeth. Hope you are recovered by Camp NaNo time.

      Seeing your bright blog makes me want to use more color in mine.

  8. Colette B

    I enjoyed a quick read here while I break from task and will definitely have to return soon to read your blog security mini-challenge and other posts too – your categories list looks enticing, I can’t wait to get back with enough time for a browse. Thank you again for visiting my blog.

  9. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Impressive list! I hope you are enjoying the event. Thanks for sharing.
