Bloggiesta Update

Bloggiesta logo

I've completed all but one item on my to-do list for Bloggiesta
  • Spruce up my sidebar - done!  What do you think of the new photo I added for the "about me" widget?  I used Fotoflexer to edit it.
  • go through all of my recorded chants to review sound quality and determine which need to be re-recorded - done!  A couple of them need to be re-recorded, but most had better quality than I remembered (given that I recorded them on my crappy computer microphone)
  • Create a chants page for posting chants - done!  It's empty right now, but I will be posting one of my chants later this week.
  • ADDED: Create a new page for the Monday Music Break - done!  It made sense to add this as a to-do item, to make it easier to find all the entries for this feature.
  • Clean up new site design - postponed.  I didn't really time this weekend to devote to my site design, but I'm happy with the way it looks for now.  I'm open to comments about the background, header, etc. to help me make it more appealing.
  • Do a couple Blogiesta challenges - done!  I completed 3 4 mini-challenges, and they were all really helpful.
  • Clean up Google Reader and Twitter Follow lists - done!  This definitely needs to happen every 6 months or so.
I also took part in this morning's Bloggiesta Twitter party.  I feel like I learned even more, and I had a good time networking and sharing ideas with other bloggers.  If you're on twitter, I'd love it if you'd follow me!

Did you participate in Bloggiesta this weekend?  How did it go?  What did you accomplish?


  1. Great job! I love the heart you have in your picture ... looks great! My only suggestion for your sidebar would be to move your 'Subscribe by Email' widget up underneath your other icons, as well as your GFC widget. That would make it easier for your readers to find a way to follow you.

    Happy bloggiesta! :)

  2. Thanks! Fotoflexer is pretty awesome for simple photo manipulation, kind of like instagram. And moving those widgets up is a fantastic idea - thanks for the tip!

  3. Way to go! You accomplished so much. Now you can spend the time you would have spent on all that stuff focusing on the blog layout things you wanted to get to. Wonderful!

    Thanks so much for participating in Bloggiesta! We hope to see you again in September!

  4. Hi Colleen, you had a lot of work done, and the photo also looks great! If you have an iPhone, the app Instagram also does wonders to your images, I usually use that one. I only managed to join one Twitter Party, but I had a lot of fun with that. Glad to note you were also able to join a few of the mini-challenges, I think we joined six, and it was a pretty cool experience too.

    1. Thanks! Blogiesta was such a great experience, I'm glad you had fun too. I do not have an iPhone (I have a very old flip phone) so no instagram for me :(
