Bloggiesta Spring 2015I’m so excited for the first-ever week-long Bloggiesta! Bloggiesta is a fun working party to make our blogs all nice and spiffy — spring-cleaning for the website.

In case you didn’t see it earlier, I’m running a mini-challenge for this Bloggiesta about Making Memes. Check it out! I have a very low-commitment level to join, so if you’ve ever wanted to have a good think about whether or not you want to host a meme, this is the perfect opportunity!

The Bloggiesta folks organized the Twitter chats for each day by a theme, so I’m going to follow the same themes to organize my goals this week.

Here’s the plan:

My Bloggiesta Plan — 27 Comments

  1. Wow. You are going big with Bloggiesta. Good luck! Hope to see you around next week.

  2. Holy cow. Those are some ambitious Bloggiesta goals! I love the themes for each day, and may need to borrow those (with credit given, of course) and some of your to-do’s, as many are on my list as well.

    Have fun Bloggiesta-ing!

  3. Wow, Joy, you’re going to be BUSY! It’s a great idea, organizing your Bloggiesta plan according to the chat themes. I’m hoping to make some of the chats, and get to some of the challenges.

  4. Really like how you’ve organized your goals by day and theme! I transferred my Bloglovin’ feed to Feedly and am going to see how I like it once I get used to everything. Was pretty easy to move all of my groups, and I love easy! Google+ has been on my to-do list for awhile, as I’m still not 100% sure how to use it. Maybe this will be the week I finally figure it out! Good luck with all of your goals!

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog and the warm welcome to joining the bloggiesta 🙂 Enjoyed reading your articles, i’ll maybe pop by for a Brit-Isles-Fri contribution if not this week, another time (and now I know what a meme is too – can’t believe how long I’ve been reading that word in blogs and not taking any notice of it or how I didn’t actually know what it meant!)
    Best wishes 🙂

  6. You are amazingly organized, and getting so much done! I was scheduled to be out every night this week, so I decided not to try to join in on Bloggiesta this time, but have been trying to do some cheerleading here and there. Regarding G+, it looks like the Book Bloggers Do It Better community may end up over on Facebook instead, and that was really the only group that I was active in in G+. I have a G+ circle for Book Bloggers, though, and I think you’re in it!
