Bloggiesta - Mini-challenges

One of the items on my bloggiesta to-do list was "Check out the mini-challenges and complete at least one." 
I decided that my Bloggiesta Saturday would be all about the mini-challenges. Here are the mini-challenges I took on:

  •  How to Host a Giveaway at The Book Monsters
    I haven't hosted a giveaway, but it sounds pretty do-able. The Book Depository seems like a great way to send books to lots of places around the world. Rafflecopter (which I have entered givaways with) looks like the way to go with this. There may be a giveaway in my blogging future.

  • Post Brainstorming at My Little Pocketbooks
    Some excellent suggestions for post topics! The list of memes she pointed out at Readerbuzz has some cool ones I may want to play along with. (There is also a good list of memes at GirlXOXO.) The post suggestions in Help! Unique to You and Lists also seem like ideas that might work for me. I wanted to comment on this excellent post, but Disqus refused to let me in.
  • Digital DeCluttering at Books a True Story
    I'm pretty obsessive about stuff going in folders, so I didn't have a ton to do for this challenge, but I did spend some time cleaning up folders of picture files and I cleared out the 75 files in my download folder.
  • Book Blogging Heroes at Book Bloggers International
    I chose option 1 and visited 3 new blogs from among the bloggers who had been interviewed on the site. (I read a bunch of the interviews because they were so interesting). I visited (and plan to visit again):  
  • I worked on How to Use IFTTT at Book Vixen, but didn't complete the mini-challenge because I had some problems getting my recipe to work correctly. I will keep playing around with it though as it seems like a great tool.
  • I also want to mention How to Make GoodReads Work for You at The Book Addict's Guide which was a great post full of information about all the stuff you can do with GoodReads. I have used GoodReads for many years and already use all the bells and whistles so there was nothing for me to complete in this challenge.

  1. Giveaways are so fun! Pretty easy too :) I haven't done one in forever because I'm flat broke. Oh yay glad you got some digital decluttering done. I am so not good at organizing digital stuff. I loved IFTTT too. I hope my recipe works - I won't know till monday :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
