Bloggiesta Goals!

It’s Bloggiesta time again, hosted by It’s All About Books and There’s a Book!  It goes from  September 28-30. I really hope to get a lot done on the weekend.

I feel like I only get about half of what I need to get done each day, which means that each and every day I am falling a little bit more behind. My to-do list keeps getting longer. And that is also true for my blog to-do list. So I decided to join bloggiesta again for this weekend. (I also need to do a lot of reading, so my bloggiesta is going to be a blog weekend. Reading, tips, and clean up) I have a lot of things I hope to get done. Overly ambitious as always.  Here is my goals list!-don’t be anti-social! Talk to people on twitter-update my challenges list for the year-update my review links-email giveaway winners/ship… Read more »
