Bloggiesta Wrap Up


Bloggiesta was a lot of fun. I wish I had more time, but I ended up having to do errands on Saturday. It was really nice to have an excuse to just work on the blog. I will have lots of commenting to do over the next few days, but it was worth it. 

I was only able to do the one basic challenge, but I have saved the other challenges and I plan to work on them later. The image map challenge is so amazing. I can't wait to try it out for the next Sunday Update.

My To Do List
  •  Research web hosts --> Any suggestions??? 
I have researched a few web hosts, and I have narrowed down the list. Now, I need to do some research on the next step of the self-hosting process.
  • Write four Thoughtful Thursday posts
This didn't happen. I wish I had more time on Saturday to work on this.
  • Write eight Top Ten Tuesday posts
I am so happy that I got eight of these posts done! I really enjoy this meme, but it takes so much time with getting links and pictures. Writing a stack of these at the same time saves so much time.
  • Organize sidebar better 
    • Maybe move annual challenges to its own page?
    • Maybe get rid of the archive and just keep the keywords?
    • Have all of my social media buttons uniform (Bloglovin' I am looking at you!) 
I moved some things around on my sidebar. I didn't get rid of anything, but I like the layout a bit better. Also, I updated my social media icons a bit. Bloglovin' matches and I have pop up text for the icons when you hoover over them.
  • Update pages
    • Explain my rating system
    • Update my About Me page
    • Begin making a page linking to all reviews
    • Create a page with favorite posts
I didn't get to any of this either. I have ideas of what I want to do, and I will slowly be working on this over the next month.

Well done with your progress :) It's always awesome, even if it's just marking off 2 - 3 thing the to-do list!

I am seriously in love with your media icon buttons! The pale textured backgrounds are so pretty :3

I am glad that you like them. They are a free set that I found on the internet. There are so many free sets that people will let you use. :)
