Bloggiesta: Update 1

Last night I was finally able to kick my blogging efforts into high gear.  I've bounced around a bit in my work, trying mainly to play with the new header on my blog, and to get the look throughout into something more uniform to my tastes.  I have to say, I really like the new design feature they have with blogger now.  It really helped me tweak a few things.

As far as my list, here is what I have accomplished:

Time Spent:  7 Hours
Mini-Challenges:  0, but I want to try to remedy that later tonight
  • I read through four of my folders in Google Reader, but I'm still over 600!  Wow.  I have more reading to do.  :)
  • 0 Book Review, but they're coming.
  • Finished my About, Contact, and Review Policy pages.  No small thing, let me tell you. 
  • Fixed some issues such as centered text by changing my template around a bit.
  • I tried to figure out how to include a Google Reader Widget, but was unsuccessful.  I'll keep working on the blog roll issue.
I have a lot still to work on, and will pick back up in a bit.  I'm ready for a break, and to head out into the gorgeous sun before it sets for the night!  Aloha!


  1. Job well done so far! Do try those mini-challenges - they're surprisingly helpful. Keep up the good work!

  2. I love your new layout! I'm going to have to do Bloggista the next time it rolls around.

  3. The new Blogger design thing freaked me out a little bit at first. I'll have to check into it a little more, and see what all there is to it. It sounds like you've gotten a lot done!

  4. Good luck with all the goals that you've set yourself. I get freaked out if my google reader is over 100 unread, so I know how you feel. I hope you enjoy all that reading!!

  5. Good luck on all your goals! (I'm sorry I'm a bit late). I have to admit, your blog looks so good now! And I like your about page :)

  6. Jacqueline, Natasha, Farmlanebooks--Thanks for the encouragement to keep me going. I had a lot to work on, and I think I got through a big chunk of it!

    Buckeye Girl, Shelley, & Irisonbooks--Thanks for the new look mention! I appreciate it. :) I had been wanting to tweak things here for so long, and the summer was just a great opportunity!
