Bloggiesta Wrap-up

This year I felt like I got more done for Bloggiesta, although it possibly doesn’t look like it when you take a look at this blog, I did a lot!

All in all, I’m very happy with this Bloggiesta. There is still a lot I want to do with the blog, but I feel like this event kick-started my actually doing those things. So it was a successful weekend!

  1. Congrats on finishing so many tasks! Looks like you had a productive weekend. I was wondering where your sidebar was. Looking for social networking icons is frustrating, right? So hard to find a set that matches! I had to make my own for the Goodreads button because I couldn’t find one for it (so I Googled the font used and turns out I don’t have Helvetica so I ended up just using Arial). You’ve started on your Whiskey Road review! Still need to work on that. Can’t wait for the long weekend to start.

    • Yeah, this has been the case (no sidebar on individual posts, but sidebar on main page) ever since I switched to the TwentyEleven theme. The one downfall of it! I still like how it looks cleaner and wider than my last theme though.

      YES. I was stomping around my apartment making frustrated noises after a couple of hours of fruitless searching. I saw your new buttons. I recognized the LJ one from my own googling, heh. And yeah, I did the same thing for the goodreads one (used Arial).

      • Sigh, it’s so hard to find a theme that has everything that you want with it. I like TwentyEleven because it looks clean but yeah, I like having a sidebar (I actually have two LOL).

        Glad I wasn’t the only frustrated by buttons! I stayed up late to search for those. I like the ones that you made, by the way. 🙂

        • Yeah, I don’t think I realized the thing about no sidebars within my posts until after I already had my TwentyEleven all customized. Oh well. Let’s see what happens after I get totally sick of it 🙂

  2. Hi I found your blog via Angieville. Bloggiesta sounds like a great idea, but I didn’t do it this time. I’m a novice blogger, but your accomplishments are very inspiring! I am annoyed that my social buttons looke amateurish too, so I feel your pain-lol. 🙂

  3. I didn’t get to do your mini-challenge, but I already have a goodreads account and I post all my books there. I haven’t started posting reviews there – that’s my next step. I will be back one of these days to read the challenge and all the tips!

    One of my big projects was to create a review archive page. Right now it’s by author and it’s all on one page. I need to still tweak it, but getting that much done took a whole day and I was tired working on that.

    I already have a new list going for the next Bloggiesta and can’t wait!

  4. Looks like you had a terrific Bloggiesta! Thanks for the offer to help with Pinterest invites — most folks managed to get them from their friends. I enjoyed all the new people I met through Pinterest and through Goodreads by participating in your challenge. What fun!
