Well, Bloggiesta is over. And I failed miserably. Of course things happened that were totally out of my control so that explained my lack of time and attention to really focus on my blog. I didn't even have time to look at all the mini challenges either. *sigh*
So here's how I did on my To Do List.
Write Reviews - I have about 25 books I need to write reviews for (bad Deborah!), want to crank them out by the end of the weekend. Reality: I wrote 6. At least this whole week and next Monday is covered. Will write more later this week.
2. Make a Review Database - I plan on eliminating the labels portion on the sidebar and creating a database with links to all reviews (there are almost 500 so this is a huge task) in alphabetical order and by genre time permitting. Reality: Didn't even start on this at all. Have no idea when I'll be able to do this.
3. Fix Images on Reviews - several of my older reviews have had their book covers disappeared so I would like to go back and fix them Reality: Did good on these. Like the next task below, I spent all of Sunday doing this and I got about halfway down my labels list and was able to fix what I could
4. Fix Formatting on older reviews - Prior to switching to this new template, I had used colored texts (gasp!) and reviews are now looking funny due to images not being centered. Reality: Like above, did really well. Got about halfway down my label list, so got to the M's on the author. There's a lot more to do still.
5. (Time Permitting) Add Amazon Associate links to older reviews - not really necessarily but I like consistency :) Reality: Didn't even attempt. Have been having problems also with my AA so not sure if/when I will do this.
I didn't keep track of time but I'm going to guess around 8 hours working on the reviews and formatting. I got a headache Sunday night and passed out early. Ahh..just not my weekend!
