Bloggiesta Finish

Let's see. I got some things done.

Cleaned up/reordered the sidebar.
Added a Friends Connect/Follow button.
Changed the Pinterest icon.
Did get the signature added. Sort of weird how it appears whenever I open a new post and I have to move it down. Should see if I can get it to start a couple lines down. Small thing but it will bug me unless I try.
Commented on some new blogs and added them to my Google Reader. Fun!
A few ideas for future posts. Not as many as I wanted but more than a couple.

Did NOT figure out
Blog backup. Eeek. You'd think I'd have learned that. Had a laptop stolen 18 months ago and lost so much info and pics that I didn't have anywhere else. Swore that would never happen to me again!
Pin button. Well. I figured out one within the post. But I thought it looked kind of tacky. In my perfect world I'd figure out how to get one down below the post ... like next to the ones blogger provides (FB, tweeting, google plus, etc.)
A review format that I really like.

As this was my first "Bloggiesta" and I wasn't even that active ... I think they went well. I read most of them and will still be trying to incorporate some of their ideas.
I could host a mini-challenge next time on (simple) picture editing. Photoshop genius I'm not but I do like to mess around with a lot of the online tools. You wouldn't necessarily know it from looking around on my blog but hey. That is one of my goals. More pics!



  1. Congratulations on finishing up your first Bloggiesta! I love your blue Pinterest button, it's so cute. You did a great job otherwise and I really love the look of your blog. Hopefully you'll participate again next time, we'd love to have you...especially if you're interested in hosting a mini-challenge! ;o)

    Thanks so much for participating!

  2. I need to figure out how to add a signature to my posts - that's already on my list for the next bloggiesta!

    I, too, plan on coming back to the mini-challenges to add more to my blog. I am still using the old blogger interface - I really need to just jump on the bandwagon and start using the new one.

  3. Just reading about Bloggiesta made me hyperventilate a bit. Glad I missed it. The four teenagers in my house were LOUD over break and very little got accomplished!

  4. I am impressed by anyone who does it themselves. I know I could too if I took the time but I had someone do mine for me.

    I love your blog!

    I am now a follower!

    I would love for you to visit me when you get the chance. =)
