There's A Book

Bloggiesta is all wrapped up! Can you believe it? It’s been a whirlwind weekend and I truly had a blast! It was particularly fun co-hosting with Suey from It’s All About Books. I’ve long loved Suey’s blog and I’m so so happy I finally had this opportunity to work with her! Thank you Suey for making the event one of the easiest and best I’ve ever planned!

Now, as for my own personal goals for Bloggiesta…well, that’s another story:

Find a new WordPress Theme for my site. (Mine is just getting old.)
Update my Goodreads account as well as my Reviews Page with my recent reviews.
Write at least ten reviews for a rainy day…or tomorrow!
Comment, comment, comment!

To be honest, I’m not disappointed one bit! I had so much fun, met a ton of new bloggers I’d never met before, had a blast with the Twitter parties and generally felt like I accomplished quite a bit. I’m still on the search for a new theme, but all the other stuff will take care of itself as time goes on. I’m just so happy I had the opportunity to participate in another fantastic Bloggiesta event and grateful Natasha from Maw Books Blog who not only started it, but trusted Suey & myself enough to take over her wonderful project!

Thanks to everyone who participated!
Be sure to head over to Suey’s site to link-up your wrap-up posts and tune in September 28-30, 2012 for the next Bloggiesta event!

    yes, it has totally been fun.. and thanks to all the mini-challenges which helped me get stuff accomplished.. if left to my own goals of writing reviews and scheduling posts, i would have not got much done..:) thank you for hosting and already looking forward to Sept..

    • You’re so welcome! I know what you mean about the “left to your own devices” thing. I’m the same way. Having a weekend to work together seems to make it so much more attainable. Way to go! See you in September again!

    I think one of the best things about Bloggiesta is that we’ve all made public ‘To Do’ lists. Whether we complete all the items this weekend or not, we can go back and reference them in the future – and eventually see our progress! So, good job! *grin*

  3. Thank you so much for co-hosting such an awesome event! I always look forward to these Bloggiesta’s and am DEFINITELY looking forward to the next one! GREAT JOB btw!!

  5. Congratulations, Danielle. You’ve been busy writing comments indeed! I know what you mean about finding new themes, we’re pretty lucky that Iphigene has that all worked out for the three of us. And we’re definitely joining the next round of Bloggiesta! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Myra! It’s so tough to find a theme, I can’t imagine having to find one that three people all agreed on. Wow! Can’t wait to have you back again in September! πŸ™‚

    You both did a great job organizing a really fun event. It was a great weekend and we all learned a lot and met many new people. Your to-do list won’t go away, you can always come back to it. I am already looking forward to the next Bloggiesta in September.
    And, oh, I finally get to do the sweet captcha. Hardly anybody has it and on my own blog I never get to do it, :).

    • Thank you so much! That to-do list definitely isn’t going anywhere, that’s for sure. πŸ˜‰

      And yay! Isn’t the captcha the best?! I was so excited to see it on your site as well because I have the same problem. I never get to use it anywhere else it seems. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for hosting this event. I had so much fun and got a ton done!!! One of my favorite parts of this is visiting everyone to see what they are working on. I already started a new list of things to work on for the next bloggiesta!!!

    • You’re so welcome! I’m glad to hear you got so much done! It’s hard not to add to your list when you start visiting so many great sites with more ideas. LOL At least there’s a big group to keep cheering us all on. πŸ™‚

  8. Co-hosting an event like this takes a lot of work. Thank you for everything that you and Suey did! πŸ™‚

  9. Commenting is a huge thing, so I’m glad you were able to do a lot of it! And socializing with bloggers and meeting new ones … that was one of my favourite parts of the weekend!

    You and Suey did a great job of hosting this event! πŸ™‚

    I love your theme! But, I understand about wanting a new one. Sometimes, change is good and needed. I hope you find something that works for you.

    As far as my theme, it’s Luscious Child Theme, but it works on the Genesis framework. There are a lot of cool themes you can use with Genesis and they’re not buggy or anything because you have to pay for them. I’d take a look at it and see if you can find something. πŸ™‚

  11. Yay! This was so much fine. Thanks for all your work, even if it meant you didn’t have time to work on your own list. I really appreciate the effort it took to organize such a terrific event. I got lots done, some of which I had been saving since the last Bloggiesta more than a year ago!

  12. Suey says:

    LOL… I just realized I totally forgot the cute finish line graphic in my post! I was in such a hurry to finally get it up for everyone! Opps.

    Yes, it was a blasting hosting with you! I say we make a good team! πŸ™‚

    I’m sad you didn’t get much done on your blog, but commenting was fun. I felt like I did A LOT too, but I’m sure I missed so many people!

    Here’s the the next one!

  13. Alexia561 says:

    So glad that you and Suey took over hosting duties, as you did a great job and it was so much fun! I totally forgot about the Finish Line picture too… time!

  14. PragmaticMom says:

    Thank you for hosting. That was fun and very useful!

    I know I rarely comment, and when I do it even more rare that it is worth reading, however, I think this one may get an “amen” or “yes, that would be helpful” from some other readers…

    Dearest 1st Niece,

    Please provide an emergency contact number on the side bar (like a really cool phone widget!) or perhaps a signal (like Batman uses, but also visible by day) for those times when we are wandering about in the library (like a homeless person looking more to stay warm than read), peering over small people in B&N (like the creepy cat lady down the block), or aimlessly perusing Amazon (and eventually purchasing an AirSwimmer for $49), wondering what the heck we should invest time and cash in that would please a 4 year old girl, or boy, or maybe a teenager whose parents won’t let them read “Anne of Green Gables” because it’s just “too complicated and grown up” (that poor kid is gonna need therapy).

    I know you have a life, but really, can’t it be set aside for my sporadic reading and/or book purchasing emergencies? No? boo. o.k. Accepted. But not happy about it. Good thing I know your mother will give me your cell number! : )

    You can run into the bat-cave, but “Alfred” just spilled the digits!

    Sincerely, Your Aunt, the wackadoodle one

    btw, way cool “prove you’re not a robot” tool!

    Sounds like everyone had a FANTASTIC time….yay! I would have loved to sign up but cie la vie…life takes over sometimes. Thoroughly enjoying seeing what everyone accomplished though and creating my own to-do list for throughout the year. Great job ladies! Hats off to you!

  17. I wish I had gotten more time to comment on blogs. But I got a lot done which was nice! New pages and follow buttons and stuff. I’m very proud of what I got done too! Plus I learned a lot with the mini challenges. Can’t wait for the next one!
