Here's where I stand on my Bloggiesta projects.
1) I tried to do text boxes/block quotes. This required editing my template. Scary! For some reason, it didn't work. But for those of you who are interested in trying it, I'll run a guest post in the next week or so with all Arianne's instructions. I'm 100% sure it was my fault, not hers. You can try it out and let me know if it worked for you.
2) I set up a Mr. Linky account! Want to know how? Go to The Book Butcher's blog post and she'll fill you in.
3) I moved all my Hunger Games Trivia Questions into a special page. Did you miss any questions or do you just want to try again now that you've seen the movie? The page is here!
4) Backed up my blog and my template! Easy peasy!
5) I tried switching my list of blog pages to tabs under my banner, but it looked really ugly. No good.
6) Inspired by how efficient I was feeling, I put back a drawstring in my favorite dog walking sweatshirt. You know when the drawstring comes all the way out and you can't get it back in? So annoying!
7) I made a Bloggiesta blogging buddy. It's Patrick @ The Bookshelves. Go check out his blog!!
8) Changed the copyright date on my footer. Need to keep up with the times!
9) I did a comments contest drawing! I love saying thanks to all my amazing blog readers. Without them, I'm just sitting here, talking to myself. Here's what the winners picked:
FanofaSymmetry chose Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Andrea @ Overstuffed Bookcase chose Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis
Ashelynn @ Gypsy Book Reviews chose Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
Elin chose Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
And a last minute addition --
Jenny @ Juliababyjen's Reading Room chose Last Echo by Kimberly Derting
All your comments from today on count for the April drawing!
Tomorrow, in addition to doing my IMM, I'll post some ideas I have for the blog and would love your feedback!
