I know that technically I should have started my personal Bloggiesta this morning at 8am, but it’s a bit hard to get in the mood when no-one else will arrive at the party for another 12 hours.
So, to help me feel a little less stranded at the bottom of the globe, I have started my Bloggiesta at 8pm Australian EST and will run through until 8pm Sunday night. Still not quite in synch with everyone else, but much better than it could be.
I’ve already listed my Bloggiesta goals when I signed up, so now all I have to do is overcome my time management hurdles for the weekend (family birthday lunch tomorrow, possible guests for dinner tomorrow night, church Sunday morning) and get stuck in to getting this blog into tip top shape.
I’m really excited about the mini-challenges that Natasha has lined up at different book blogs. I really do function better when given a specific task and deadline, so I’m hoping for some great progress this weekend.
I love that the Bloggiesta mascot has a name now too – PEDRO will remind us to Plan, Edit, Develop, Review and Organise.
So, I’m already over an hour into the Bloggiesta and I’m ready to get started (well, I will be as soon as I go and make myself a cup of tea). I notice that a few of the mini-challenges have already been posted, so I’m off to try to get a head-start.
Wish me luck!
Please add a comment if you have any suggestions about ways I can improve Reading Upside Down or just say Hi!
