Chips, Dips, Memes and Quips ~ Comenzamos La Bloggiesta!

Say hello to my little friend, Pedro! 

Plan.  Edit.  Develop.  Review.  Organize 

K, got my coffee… ate my sausage, egg and cheese biscuit from Hardee’s and I’m working on my country potatoes (mmm… soo much better than hashrounds!), and I’m saving the cinamon raisin biscuit for later.  My rat terrier, Missy, is full and happy after her Monster Biscuit (ham, cheese, egg, cheese, sausage, cheese, bacon and did I mention cheese? on a biscuit – It’s her new favorite from her FAVORITE restaurant), but would you believe that, after all that, she’s still bumming potatoes?  LOL..  Hardee’s is her one vice… that and cat turds fresh from the litter pan. 

My snow boots are kicked off, I’m feeling warm and relaxed, and I’m reading to get down with PEDRO!  Baila conmigo, buddy! 

So here’s what my plans are so far: 

  • I need to update my widgets!  Some of them contain info from last summer, some from last year, in general.  I need to bring them up-to-speed.
  • I’m evaluating whether or not to begin a seperate blog for The Welsh Reading Challenge.  A few people have joined (to be honest, more than I had expected, even), and there’s a wealth of titles and resources out there that I could tap.  The question is, however, how deep do I want to get in the challenge when my main reading focus for 2010 is to clear out all my ARCs by the end of the year.
  • I’m debating whether or not to chuck Viral Video Wednesday.  I’ve been lazy with it anyway, and it’s a distraction all week long when I’m really trying to focus on my reading goals.  I love it and enjoy it, but maybe set it aside at least until next year.
  • I need to update my Challenge page, my Mt. TBR inventory and ARC-alanche pages, as well as decide what to do with other pages.
  • I need to update my accepting books policy, because I really don’t want to add more books to the pile unless it’s one I’m dying for and can’t live without.
  • I need to establish a comprehensive and well-defined ratings system.  I feel the way I’ve been rating books is a bit arbitrary, and luckily I’ve found a good one to steal 😀
  • I want to visit everyone’s mini-challenges and check out what everyone else is doing in case there’s anything else I want to steal 😀

That’s about it for now.  But I may add more later.  I’ll update as I complete things!

  1. I love your goals. I think I’ll add doing most of the mini-challenges to my to-do list. Good luck!

  2. Well, you are NOW in my blogroll; thought you were already (might be and I missed it?) but if in GR than I forget to use my blogroll. whatever. I saw you questioning blogrolls on Twitter? I use mine for just a record of blogs I know and like to read but maybe not read most of the time so that is why mine is crazy long. I figure it is for me mostly and don’t think mine detracts from my clean look. I could be wrong, I guess…
    anyway happy bloggiesta! you have terrific goals – good luck! 🙂

  3. Great list of tasks! And I’m jealous of your dogs breakfast 🙂

  4. You’ve made some great goals! Good luck!

  5. I just wrote a review policy for the first time ever. I am sure I’ll need to update it soon. I am trying to be REALLY careful on books I accept to review. it would be easier to do that, of course, if I just said I wouldn’t accept ANY.

  6. Good list of things to do! Have lots of fun! 🙂

  7. I am so craving a breakfast biscuit now! And you said ‘cat turd’, so I’m alternately laughing and drooling. Ew. Anyway, you crack me up and even though I’m behind checking in on Bloggiesta, I still wanted to say hi and let you know I was here! 🙂
