It’s Time for a Bloggiesta!!

The BookDepository

This weekend Natasha from Maw Books is hosting another BLOGGIESTA!!!

The bloggiesta is a time when people come together to celebrate and improve their blogs. I love taking part as there is such a positive energy in the air.


If you have a blog then I highly recommend that you join in.

It is the perfect time to make big changes on your blog – so many people will be doing similar things and everyone helps each other, giving help and advice all the time. I was amazed at how many hints and tips I picked up during previous bloggiestas. 

For more information and to sign up head over to the Bloggiesta Starting Line

I’m not going to be setting any specific goals, but I will be doing some tinkering behind the scenes. Hopefully I’ll have a few improvements to show for my efforts by Monday!!

  1. Smart, keeping us in the dark like this — now we’ll all be amazed by all the stuff you got done! :) ) Good luck!

    1. Jackie says:

      Gnoe, I’m afraid it isn’t that exciting. I’m keeping you in the dark more because it is dull than secret. You probably won’t even notice :-)

  2. Andi says:

    Happy bloggiesta! Looking forward to the fruits of your tinkering. :)

    1. Jackie says:

      Andi, So far my tinkering hasn’t resulting in much. Fingers crossed I’ll be able to do more today.

  3. Mystee says:

    Good luck..I hope that you’re able to get a lot accomplished.

  5. Bobbie says:

    Lol, I love the first comment. Now you know I am going to have to come back to see what amazing things you have done:) Good Luck this weekend!

    1. Jackie says:

      Bobbie, If you are after amazing then I’m afraid you are going to be very disappointed! I’m the sort of person who spends hours tinkering only to decide I don’t like the changes!!

  6. Rowena says:

    Wow, you have a gorgeous blog. I love all of the sleek, clean lines and the neatness of it all. Simple yet eye catching. I will definitely be coming back for more. I’m finding a lot of fantastic blogs thanks to Bloggiesta!

    1. Jackie says:

      Rowena, Thank you for the kind words. :-) Enjoy discovering all the other wonderful blogs during bloggiesta!

  7. Linda P says:

    Happy Bloggiesta, Jackie! Thanks for the information. I’m participating as a new blogger hoping to get lots of help from the blogging network and to make some new blogging friendships.

    1. Jackie says:

      Linda, I hope that you discover how wonderful the blogging community is this weekend. Enjoy your first bloggiesta!!

  8. Iris says:

    I’m curious what things you’ll be doing. Will you tell afterwards?

    1. Jackie says:

      Iris, So far I’ve fiddled with a few categories, updated a few of my older posts with new information and thought about changing my sidebars a bit (but so far haven’t kept any of the changes!). Perhaps it would be better if I remained mysterious?!

  9. Have fun. I have done some external changes – now tonight I need to move on to internal… like cleaning out the drafted post closet. Sigh. :)

    Have fun!

    1. Jackie says:

      Sheila, You’ll feel really good once you’ve completed it all. Keep up the good work!!

  10. Becky says:

    Good luck. I’ll be interested to see what you work on!

    1. Jackie says:

      Becky, Thanks Becky! I’m trying to update my old posts a bit at the moment. It would be nice if they were all tagged properly!

  11. Mome Rath says:

    You mean there’s time to do other things besides watch the World Cup? ;-)
    Your blog looks great — thanks for all the work you put into it!

    1. Jackie says:

      Mome Rath, I’m afraid I’m not a fan of the world cup. I won’t be watching any of it, so have more time than usual to blog/read. I hope you enjoy the football!!

      1. Mome Rath says:

        Thanks — I do enjoy watching the World Cup. This one is particularly enjoyable since it’s in South Africa, so I’ll get to see a few familiar places. And I plan to get some World Cup reading in, too, with books by South African authors Coetzee and Gordimer.
