Bloggiesta Ole!

blogiesta

It has begun… my first Bloggiesta and I am late… Break out the tequila and a round of shots to everyone!

Perhaps a wonderfully spicy Mexican hot chocolate with a shot of espresso and Tia Maria. Maybe a few morning margaritas with fresh grapefruit juice?

Libation = Bravery. Better back up my blog first. ;)

Primary Goals and Plans are:

  1. Back up blog
  2. Create an internal reading challenge list and updated finished challenges
  3. Start an author link up page for all Layers of Thought’s writer and author followers
  4. Start an updated internal blogroll
  5. Clean up any defunct links
  6. Clean out my google reader a bit more
    since it is exploding
  7. Start a bunch of posts that I have been neglecting
  8. More as I explore

Cheers to all!

I know how you feel with the Google Reader explosions. Just a day without checking can be disastrous.

Logan -

I have over 2000 blogs that I subscribe too... and I recently deleted a bunch.

I am a certified "nut job" - self diagnosed. I will be deleting quite a few in the next few days...

A few months ago I decided, since I was completely overwhelmed that all Layers of Thought's followers get top read priority. Like yourself :)

BTW - I have not gotten around to reading anyone's blog since I left for Napa...Yikes.

My first one too! Glad to see you join. I will be checking for your updates.

Are you on twitter with the group?

Natasha -
Fun Stuff - Thanks for hosting!

I have already gotten several important things done which I have been neglecting and a few new great ideas!

Wow, that's a lot of blog subscriptions. I typically only try to follow ones that I enjoy after the blogger has entertained me for a few posts. But that's just me. Good luck!

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Logan -
Yes thats the sane thing to do.

I got a bit carried away. *sheepish grin* understandably most have not gotten read in months.

Hopefully I will get some of that fixed in the next 24 hours or so.

We have some very similar goals. Good luck with all of yours :-) Here's to crossing things off a to do list.

Aarti -
Thanks!

And heres to getting distracted with all the other cool stuff everyone is doing. Lol!

I am so awful about that....

Great goals! You might check out the mini-challenge I'm hosting. It's to get a cheat sheet set up so in the case something on your site goes missing or you need a link quickly, you'll have it. Just a thought.

Good luck!

Great list! I'll be cheering you on! I'm doing my newest blog, which is Creative Moments, at http://laurelrainsnowswonderland.wordpress.com

Laurel -
I looked in your blogger link up and could not find your post. You have a wordpress blog too.... wow!

Will be by to check out your list. I am a bit stuck on goal number two right now. Trying to create a badge for the link. More visually interesting that way on the front page. :)

Great list! I am up for the margarita about now. :)

Have fun!

Sheila -
I figured it out... I mixed up the bloody posts. What a goof-la.

I feel much better now that my comments are posting.

Thanks for the cheer!
