Okay, so Bloggiesta didn’t work out to be as productive as I intended, partly because I ended up being busy on Sunday and barely even touching my computer, but I did make some small amount of progress.
What I did do
~ Start up a new weekly feature I’ve been planning (Smashing Saturday Shorts got started)
~ Trim the Google Reader list to get rid of blogs that no longer update (Ending up removing about 5 blogs that haven’t posted since the middle of December, or earlier)
~ Add 10 new bookblogs to Google Reader (Found some new good bookblogs to read!)
~ Make a list of reviews that ought to be rewritten (The rewritten reviews will be forthcoming, when I get the time to rewrite them)
~ Set up a way for people to subscribe to this blog via email (Done, and in the sidebar)
~ Arrange the e-books on my hard drive into something resembling organized. (Also did this for the books on my Kindle)
What I didn’t do
~ Update all my old review entries so that they use the same format I’m using now.
~ Update my reviews on Amazon.ca (I’ve been really slack on this).
So I still have some work ahead of me to make this blog consistant and improved, but the point is that I made some progress, and I’m happy about that. Now all I have to do is update the older reviews and update Amazon.ca with them (and whatever other ones I ended up missing), and I can consider this thing officially improved!
And for all you Fahrenheit-usin’ folks, that works out to be -31 degrees. You know it’s cold when the two temeratures are practically the same number… I wish I could just stay inside today, curled up with a good book and a never-ending mug of tea. That, in my opinion, if the only sane way to survive the winter!
