On Friday, when the challenge began I put in seven hours, having started in mid-afternoon. Saturday and Sunday was not as productive.
The first thing I did was clean up up the sidebar associate program sites so that now at least they are all together. Done
Then I made up templates that I can use when running contests so that the list of rules is more uniform. Done
I put together 3 backup posts. Very time consuming, but definitely worth the effort because now I have some breathing room. Done
Prepare upcoming posts - which means having posts ready for the entire coming week. Very valuable! (still have one more to do) Partially Done
I now have a post - see Events and Contests sidebar - that has links to the various author interviews on PVN. Done
Total hours - 17
What Bloggiesta has helped me do is organize my thoughts on what needs to be done on PVN. I hope that when I have finished everything on the TO DO List that it will give the site more value to my readers.
As you can see I had lots of Bloggiesta plans for the weekend, but late Friday evening the symptoms of a nasty bug showed up. I've spent the last 2 1/2 days feeling achy, listless, and unable to concentrate on much of anything, even mindless TV. But in my moments of clarity - and there were a few - I worked on the Bloggiesta challenge! Most items were not accomplished this weekend, and that's OK. Now I have a plan.
Thank you, Natasha, and the many others who made Bloggiesta possible!
