The biggest pain thing was changing to my own domain. I found that a bit overwhelming and had a break down on Twitter over it. Thank goodness for Froot Joos who totally saved my butt and kept me from tears.

Speaking of Twitter, it was a great device for Bloggiesta. Whenever I had a question, someone was there to offer help, advice or opinions. Thank you!

Now that's it's all over, I'm so glad I did it even though I was tied to the computer all weekend. Not that there was much else to do! By the next Bloggiesta I'm sure I'll have just as long a list then as I did for this one.

So how many hours did I do the challenge? At least 24! Time had no meaning for me in the middle of it.

If you Bloggiesta'ed, how did you do? Or has an event like Bloggiesta inspired your own blog clean-up this month?

  1. I really need to spend some time on my blog, but our son was here until about 2:00 today and I decided I would rather be with him than with my PC. Hopefully I'll get inspired one day.

  2. It sounds like you had a very productive weekend. Sometimes, you just need to take the time and do some housekeeping. Considering how cold it has been this weekend, this was the perfect time to do so, don't you think? I'm glad Bloggiesta has been such a success for you!

  9. Congratulations on a fabulously productive weekend. I know how frustrating the blog change over was for you but hopefully now that it's done it will make things easier in the long run.
