I'm participating in Bloggiesta, a blog improvement event hosted this weekend by Maw Books Blog. The cute little guy in the logo is named Pedro, which stands for Plan, Edit, Design, Review, Organize.

Bloggiesta is technically an 8AM to 8PM event, but since part-time bloggers need to fit their hours in wherever and whenever they can, I'm up at 5 to start working on one of my New Year's Resolutions, which is to improve my blog! My Bloggiesta goals are modest:
  1. Expand the Blog Roll. So many blogs are part of my weekly reading now, and I'd like to give them credit.
  2. Clean up Review Central. It's the The thing. Everything is under "T." I realized the problem a while ago, and started filing under the second word, but now it's inconsistent and making me nuts.
  3. Play with the look of Col Reads. Can I make it more personal? More fun? That's what I want to find out.
  4. Catch up on some posts. I read a few books over break that I never blogged about. I'm thinking about this as a chance to clear the decks!
  5. Participate in a Mini-Challenge. I've never done that before, so I thought it would be fun.
I'll report back here throughout the day! Thanks so much to Maw Books for hosting!


  1. You've lengethened your blogroll already since I was here last. I look forward to seeing how you play around with the appearance; the new Blogger template deal makes that so easy. (Too easy for me!) ;)

  2. I noticed your pictures are back, Bellezza. I'm glad because I love them :-)

  3. Thanks, friend. I do too, actually, so they'll probably stay. This current look you have (the wall/window/painting background looks fun!

  4. I like that your list isn't too long; you can probably get these things done in a weekend. Good luck and have fun!


I absolutely love comments. Thanks for taking the time to share! Col
