Hey, it’s Bloggiesta time again! I didn’t even realize. For me, this also means that it’s Greek Fest downtown, the only time of year when I eat gyros and baklava all weekend long (this most definitely tides me over until next September). Greek food, a Mexican-themed blog party, the Scottish referendum — it’s a multi-cultural weekend.
So, what are my goals for Bloggiesta?
1) Figure out what the hell I’m doing on WordPress. Every time I try to change something, I wind up screwing it all to hell. I don’t get WordPress and I need to know what I’m doing. *mutters* It can’t be that hard, Mary. You can do this.
2) Write ALL THE POSTS. As usual, I have so many reviews to do that I’m drowning. I won’t even tell you how far behind I am because I’m sure it will give some of you more organized and on-top-of-things people hives (hell, it’s giving me hives. It’s also making me curse a whole lot. A lot more, I mean.).
While I missed the start of this (sorry! I’m doing terribly with scheduling lately.), I did want to share this cool opportunity!
The So You Think You Can Write (#SYTYCW) contest starts on September 15 and for one week only (Sept. 15-19), Harlequin is hosting a free online writing conference.
