Bloggiesta Blogging Marathon – Spring 2016

Bloggiesta blogging marathon is here for Spring 2016. Participate March 21-27, 2016 and tackle your blogging to do list, join in twitter chats and tackle mini-challenges to expand your blogging horizons.

Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon that takes place a couple times a year where participants are encouraged to tackle our blogging to do lists, join in twitter chats and tackle mini-challenges to expand our blogging horizons. This year’s event runs from March 21-27, 2016. The planning team has added some awesome mini-challenges this year like Joining a Bookish Mastermind Group and getting/giving a blog critique to help take our blogs to the next level. For all the details on the mini-challenges offered and twitter chats scheduled, check out all the details about Bloggiesta here.

I spell out my March blogging goals at the beginning of the month, so a few of my Bloggiesta to do list items are what I have left to be done from there.

  2. Write a Recipe post.
  3. Write a Blogging Resource post.
  4. Write a Rheumatoid Arthritis post.
  5. Write a Book Review post.- The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young and a deeply personal story and When I’m Gone by Emily Bleeker.

Twitter chats

I want to participate in at least two this week. Here’s the full schedule: 

Bloggiesta Mini-Challenges

  1. Organizing Stock Photos. I really need to get a handle on this. I also want to set up a folder for images I’ve taken to use on future blog posts. I have some great photos, but I have to find them!  
  2. Blog Critiques. I have been wanting to do a reader survey to see what you’d like to read about and what you think of my site design so far. I think a fellow blog critique would go well with trying to get information on what my readers and subscribers would like to see. I’m all ears, tell me what you’d like! 


Well that’s a lot for me to get done in a week.  You know I like to have a big list to keep me motivated and to help me have lots of ideas so I can choose something depending on my mood and energy. 


What are your blogging to-do’s? What do you hope to accomplish in Bloggiesta? What other blogging events do you enjoy? What would you like to see me blog more about or what do I need to change in my design? Tell me, I’d love to hear from you! 



  1. Hi Tanya,

    Awesome list of goals – hope you’ve had an amazing week at Bloggiesta!
    Did you make it to any of the chats?
    I made a few but we managed to miss one another!

    Just applied to your Book Lovers Book Boost Group – thanks for the invite! πŸ™‚

    Have an amazing Easter! :

  2. Good luck with your goals. I look forward to seeing what recipe you end up posting, always on the look out for new recipes to try.

  3. As always, I am very impressed by your inspirational goals! Wow. I can barely find time to write reviews (still behind! ha ha) Wish I could join Bloggiesta this time (I never have), but we are traveling for Easter and then next week is spring break, so busy, busy, busy!! My big goal is to finish the last of my February reviews before we leave this week!

    Good luck – you are my inspiration!


  4. Great to-do list! Good luck getting through everything. I love the things that were added to this Bloggiesta and hope enough people participate that they do them again, because I don’t have time to sign up for them this time around. I am hoping to get through my backlog of reviews though!

    1. I know what you mean, I am spreading myself thin with this goals list before I even added any challenges! I love the challenge ideas though. Great way to grow/enhance my blog in ways I had not thought of. Good luck with your review backlog. I won’t even talk about how many I’ve got!

    1. Thanks Jenni, I need the luck! I tend to make huge lists of things I need to do. But small victories are better than none at all! Good luck with Bloggiesta and thanks for making your mini-challenge open to everyone. It’s the first thing I completed, now I get to add it to my list πŸ™‚
