Bloggiesta. . .It's over already.

I can't believe Bloggiesta is over already. I had an AMAZING time reading all the tutorials and putting some of them into practice. When I started my Bloggiesta adventure on Friday, I had 4 goals in mind:

•to be more consistent with my blogging practices
•Make my blog more aesthetically pleasing to my readers
•Learn the really cool codes to make fun gadgets for my blog
•Not be afraid to use my voice, even if a review isn't all sunshine and roses.

Well the Goal I was most excited about (number 3) was my most successful one this weekend. I learned how to make favicons and a really cool button for my blog. I am working on making a brand of myself and I love dragonflies so why not. I think with my work on goal number 3, I am well on my way to making goal number 2 reality.

Goals number 1 and 4 are ones that are going to take a lot of time to see if  they will be completed. Consistency is important for me to work on and  I don't think its something I can change in a weekend. Using my voice is going to be a fun one to work on. For the longest time, I've only been posting reviews on books I have really liked, but I don't think that helps my integrity. If I can't show both sides of the coin, the good and the bad, I'm not doing my job very well.

I want to thank Natasha at Maw Books for hosting Bloggiesta. This has been an amazing weekend full of new knowledge that I can't wait to implement. I know this is the end of the current Bloggiesta, but I do plan to keep going over some of Natasha's links for past Bloggiestas because I know they will help shape me into a better blogger.

Love and Happy Reading,
