#Bloggiesta starting post

It is that time again! And of course I have to start with the same speech about how I have neglected my blogs. But I am not going to do that. This weekend (mainly tomorrow and Sunday) I am going to spend time working on my blogs. So let's get this Bloggiesta party started and do join in if you can.

I have 2 blogs, this one and She Likes Bento. I am focussing mainly on the latter one this time around because I feel more motivated to do that.

Small Stuff:
- Back up blogs
- Remove cookbook challenge button from sidebar and clean up sidebars (SLB)
- Add favicons
- Install English spelling control in my browser (only have Dutch now)
- Make a bloggiesta grocery list
- Update copyright notices
- Update UC review page for 2013
- Update review policy

Larger things:
- Think what I want to do with this blog (make it more personal, so I will update more often..? I am still in a reading and blogging slump)
- Making a "She Likes Bento" map on Pinterest and start pinning the recipes from my blog.
- Go through my bloglovin'. Read some of those over 1600 posts, and sort out which blogs you still want to follow. (and of course add the new wonderful blogs I will find during Bloggiesta)
- Clean out my inbox - In Progress
- Make About pages for both blogs

Write posts:
- Lemonies recipe (SLB)
- Review "Pompoenenboekje" plus recipe pumpkin lasagna (SLB)
- Tomato Clafoutis recipe (SLB)
- Buttercake with apple recipe (SLB)
- Date squares recipe (SLB)

- Red cabbage with pear and feta recipe (SLB)
- Mexican Spoonbread recipe (SLB)
- Vegetarian Moussaka recipe (SLB)
- How I won a month free vegs and fruits (SLB)
- Book review: Speechless (UC)
- Book review: Paaz (UC)
- Book review: Grenzeloos (UC)
- Book review: Alice Bliss (UC)
- Book review: The Kitchen House (UC)
- Book review: Thirteen reasons why (UC)

(I have even more recipes and reviews)

Mini Challenges:
- Through a visitors eye - Part one is good to go
- Reviewing in many places - Decided not to do this, because I want to destress - not add more work ;)
- Getting to know you
- StumbleUpon

 Maybe more mini challenges as I come across them.

- Join the Twitterchat on Saturday


  1. There is enough to keep you busy for a while! Wow. I would not concentrate on writing the posts (you can do that any time) but on the other blog-related things that are typical bloggiesta tasks.

    Good luck!

    1. Well the thing is that I am totally more motivated to write posts during Bloggiesta and I need that atm :)

  2. That's a lot of posts to write! Good luck to you!)

  3. So nice meeting you at the Friday night Twitter Party! You have quite a list of goals before you. Best of luck in accomplishing them all!

    Create With Joy

  4. All the best with your Bloggiesta goals, your post list is making me quite hungry LOL

    My Bloggiesta Goals

    Have a great Bloggigesta weekend!

  5. Maybe I can be a "wonderful blog you find during Bloggiesta"! ;) You're a wonderful blog I just found!

    Good luck with all of your goals!!!!!

    Here is my Bloggiesta To Do List!

  6. I'm always amazed that people manage to keep up with two blogs - I have a hard time keeping up with just my one blog!

    Good luck with your goals - I also tend to make a long list, but that way I can choose what I want to work on.

    Here's my Bloggiesta to-do list.

    1. Well keeping up is a big word ;) Thanks though!

  7. Good luck on your goals :) I hope you're having a fun and productive weekend. It sure looks like you are!

    Happy Bloggiesta!

  8. You've already gotten a lot accomplished on your list, I see -- that's great! I had to keep my list pretty short this time around, just hard to fit it all in... I unwittingly had my own Bloggiesta a few weeks ago and got a good head start, too, haha!

    Here is my Bloggiesta To-Do List.

  9. Good luck with all of your goals! I am looking forward to your About Me page. It's always nice to know who is writing the reviews! I hope you check out my Bloggiesta To Do List or join my mini-challenge about getting involved (if you opt for more of them, that is)

    1. I have looked into your challenge and it is awesome! I might see if I can so something at our local library, but that is not something I can do during Bloggiesta :)

  10. Wow, you've done a pretty good job of getting through that list so far. Good luck with the rest of it!
