Bloggiesta Wrap-up!

Today was the final day of the weekend bloggiesta, and though I didn’t get through my entire list of things to do I did get a bunch of stuff done.

What all did I accomplish?

1. Review Archive page
2. Posted all my reviews on Amazon
3. Created a Pinterest for my blog and pinned all of my reviews
4. Did some posting
5. Visited some new blogs, followed and added them to my Awesome Blogs I Follow page
6. Updated blog buttons for the blogs I follow
7. And of course some reading!

I didn’t get a chance to get to formatting all of my older posts, but I can get to that later on, but I still got plenty done!  Hope everybody’s bloggiesta was very productive and fun!
