It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Let the Bloggiesta Begin!

Jan 8 to Jan 10
8 am to 8 am

Bloggiesta is hosted by Maw Books Blog. Here's what it's all about. It's not too late to join so head on over to the starting line!


Did you see the Flashback links? OMG! The things I could have learned!
* Rebecca at The Book Lady’s Blog – Getting out from underneath the feed reader.
* Beth from Beth Fish Reads – Creating list and opinion posts.
* Jill at Fizzy Thoughts – Just when you thought the feed reader was halfway managed Jill asks you to visit other bloggers.
* Emily from Emily’s Reading Room – On vanity alerts.
* Deborah from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food – Do you have an elevator pitch? You should be able to talk about your blog easily.
* Lynn from Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile – Getting your blog listed in several blog directories.
* Jen from Devourer of Books – Got some old material? Taking time to update key pages and posts.
* Amy from My Friend Amy – Blogging buddies! You should get one!
* Trish from Hey Lady! Watcha Readin’? – What the heck are favicons and gravatars and why you should have them.
* Michelle from GalleySmith – Anchor text. How to make the most out of your link love.
* Andrea from Book Blather – Learn from the authorities. Take time out to learn a new tip or two.
* Ruth from Bookish Ruth – Have you ever had your blog anaylzed? Now’s the chance!

And, here's what's up this go-around
* Rebecca from The Book Lady’s Blog – 2010 Resolutions. You know you got them!
* Pam from MotherReader - Blogging is about community, so check out this Comment Challenge (watch for a Mr. Linky to be up on Saturday for you to complete this challenge).
* Danielle from There’s a Book – Blogging takes time & I’m sure we’d all love to blog faster. Using a cheat sheet is just one idea of how to save time.
* Pam from Bookalicio.us – There is nothing worse than seeing your post on somebody else’s blog. Talking about blog copyright and what you need to be doing to protect yourself.
* Beth from Beth Fish Reads – Using categories & labels to find what you’re looking for.
* Jackie from Farm Lane Books – Do not lose it all! How to back up your blog.
* Karin from Karin’s Book Nook – There is nothing worse than landing on 404 error pages. It’s time to go on a dead link hunt!
* Chelle from Tempting Persephone – You have some great content. But can people find it? Here’s showing off the best of the best.
* Kristen from Bookworming in the 21st Century - Introducing a new blogger mentoring program and forum.
* Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelves – Got nothing to say (not likely – that’s why you’re blogging in the first place!) but here is an opportunity to brainstorm blogging topics.

Yay Bloggiesta! I did all the flashback links last time and I did learn a lot. I am going to review them again to see if there is anything I need to have a refesher on. :)
