It’s time for another bloggiesta – it starts tomorrow, so if you haven’t signed up yet, go sign up! – and boy do I need it! I’ve been letting several things go since the start of the year, so I’m really thankful that we have a week to get our blogs ship shape. I’ve decided to make a to-do list for each day, so that I can keep myself on track, and also break it all into achievable chunks. Here we go!

    Whew! That’s quite a list! It’s a goal list though, not set in stone. I just find I’m more productive when I have a list of things to cross of each day. I’m going to really focus on the cross-posting each day, since I’d really love to get to a point where I’m not behind on that. And then from there, we’ll see how it goes!

      Thanks!! I think I’m quite possibly the worst at replying to comments. IDK why – I feel like I’m always replying, but I have a plugin that keeps track of un replied comments and * ahem* I have over 900! :/ I feel horrible about it and its become a bit of an OCD obsession for me. One of my friends just says I need to delete the plugin and start fresh.

      Anyway… happy bloggiesta!

    Great goals to work towards, Berls. I like to make lists so I can cross off things, too. πŸ™‚ I need to make more daily goals, I think. But finding time is another problem altogether. Right? I can’t wait to see how far you make it with your goals. Good luck!

    Oh, I saw you took your exam. I’m glad they got things ironed out. πŸ™‚

      I’m obsessed with lists – they make me feel more productive. Though I probably waste a lot of time making them. I’m doing pretty good with my list so far, though I have yet to complete an entire day’s list :/

    • Berls

      Good luck with your cross posting too then πŸ™‚ It’s so easy to let slip through the cracks. Some of mine are from December! Happy Bloggiesta!

    wow! that’s a great list and looks like alot do – first one I’ve seen broken up into daily chunks, very well-organised! good luck with your goals and Happy Bloggiesta!

    • Berls

      Good luck! I’m good at making lists – the challenge is completing them! LOL! Fingers crossed I make a good dent!

  3. Lola

    Wow that’s a long list of goals! I almost feel quilty for commenting and adding to that list of comments you still have to reply to.
    But it is great to get things like these done in a while. I usually try to stay organized so I never fall behind, but that doesn’t always work and for example cross-posting is one of those things I always forget.
    Good luck with all your goals!

      Sorry if you get this reply multiple times, I’m having some trouble with my comment system…

      Thanks Lola! And don’t feel bad, I absolutely love getting comments – I just need to figure out a system for keeping up with them. I’ve been working on that a bit today. Hoping I finally figured something out. Cross posting reviews and replying to comments are my Achilles heel – somehow I always manage to fall behind with them and I have no idea how it happens. I reply to comments every day, so you’d think I’d keep up. Oh well, fingers crossed my new system will work.

    • Berls

      haha yeah organized to-do lists that confirm how not organized I am in general πŸ˜› Good luck, so glad we have a week!

    I love lists in general. I have them for all kinds of things, any given day, but particularly when Hubby is traveling and I’ve got more things to juggle. That said, your lists gave me a serious migraine! I can’t imagine doing so much on the blog alone!!! But you’re Wonder Woman, so I’m sure you’ll get it all done without breaking much of a sweat πŸ™‚ I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you. And don’t forget to have fun!

      Thanks! Strangely enough, I really enjoy everything about my blog – so none of this will really be work πŸ™‚

    You have a lot to do! But I think you can do it! Especially since you’ve broken it down into days rather than one huge task list. πŸ˜€

    I’ve always wanted to join Bloggiesta, but my to-do list seriously is…
    1) Capitalize categories that aren’t capitalized.
    2) Change “Stacking the Shelves” category to “Sunday Post.”

    Sooo…yeah. I’ll definitely be stalking the Twitter parties like I always do though. LoL

    • Berls

      You seriously need to do a post that teaches people like me not to get so behind! I have no idea how you do it… I feel like I spend a lot of time taking care of my blog and yet I’ve always got a massive to-do list :/ Oh well, crossing my fingers that I’ll make a massive dent in the list this time!

      • Angie F.

        I don’t know how I do it either, to be honest! My BFF has asked me the same but with school work, and I just have no clue. It’s not really something I think about, I just do it. *shrug*

            Nice! I decided I needed to make it simpler. I’m so happy with all I’ve gotten done this week πŸ™‚
