In short, Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing. Our awesome mascot Pedro (Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize) is ready to break out the nachos, enchiladas, drinks, mariachi music and whack a pinata or two! It’s nothing short of an awesome fiesta!
I have seen Bloggiesta goings on now and then which looked like a fun way to get blog organized. So, giving it my first try this month using the basic master list.
IF you tried this challenge before, let me know how it went for you.

Did some behind the scenes updates on above list.
Visited a few fellow Bloggiesta participants.
Found that I do not have any Books read by Title in the "X" category. Will search for an "X" book to read within the year.
Worked on mini-challenges. So nice to have emails cleaned up and super old ones deleted.
Created outline for blog calendar.
Created a rough outline for virtual book events.
Due to timing, a Twitter chat is the only thing I could not complete. Next time...
In general, I had good time and loved devoting specific time for these blog housekeeping tasks. I also found myself starting to brainstorm ideas for the blog for next year.
