Bloggiesta wrap up

1:26 PM

Well the first annual Bloggiesta is over...thanks to Maw Books for coming up with this one. This was a great idea. I learned quite a few new things and got some great ideas for things to work on. I visited some great new blogs and met some great new people on twitter over the weekend.

One thing I got done that helped was getting meta tags done...raised my web grade to 97! WooHoo!

I'm working on an elevator pitch as well as a review guidelines page. Lots of idea, just not enough time over the weekend ;)

Here's my stats:

I put in about 12 hours total with writing up reviews and working on tweaking things.
I have 8 reviews done up for the future.
I lost count of how many blogs I visited and posted on.
I made a blogging buddy.

For me this weekend was about more than participating and keeping track. I've been down the last month and a half after surgery and this was the push that I needed to get back into my blog and get some housekeeping done. I met some new blogging friends and found some new blogs to inspire me. I appreciated this...working together and helping each other out is what this community is about. I think that was so much more important to me this weekend than anything else. Helping each other improve our blogs helps the entire book blogging community - as we improve so do our reviews, and as authors and publishing houses see us taking it this seriously they take us more seriously.

Hurray for us!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
