I'M DONE !  I love doing challenges like this although I do have the inevitable sense that I didn't do enough :( I did get some extra things done that I'm very proud of and I have increased Blog and Twitter followers:)

Here is what I did:

1) Create a weekly Blog schedule   DONE! more below

2) clean up my blog format and add fun widgets HALF DONE I changed my colors which I love but didn't have time for widget addition

3)offer myself for guest posts.     DONE! e-mailed back a fellow blogger

4) set up advance posts for my vacation FAIL I will do this week, I did come up with a New Column and other new features

5) post some reviews   DONE! I read a lot this weekend and posted three reviews! and met my goal for two reading challenges! 

6) follow some new Blogs  DONE! I followed 6 new blogs and numerous twitter people

Here is my  schedule

1) Post reviews as books are completed, with links to any challenges the reviews are posted to.

2) Provide content for Book Chick City's Wish list and 1st Daughters a bit on me (Saturday)

3) Crossover Sunday where I introduce readers to the world of comics, manga and graphic novels and chronicle my journeys outside my normal reading type.

4) The NOOKery every two weeks chronicle my Nook reading, free books found, books bought and offer a e-book for lending to other nook owners

5) Monthly Tally: total of books bought, read, won and ARCs received

What do you guys think? WILL DO!!! this is my commitment to myself and getting this schedule is one of the many wonderful things I got from BLOGGIESTA :)

Great list! I'm brainstorming some new ideas for posts - I'm thinking of doing blogger interviews here and there. I'm a teacher and my blog focuses mostly on books and how they can be used with kids, but I think it would be cool to feature book bloggers and how they came to be addicted to books and where they read and things like that. Interested? (I saw that you would be interested in a guest post.) LMK!
