The Festivities Come to an End!

Today is the last day of Bloggiesta. There are some great pictures of other participants up on Maw Books Blog! I did the RSS Mini-challenge today, finishing 5 out of the 7 steps, that Puss Reboots suggested.
1. Check to see if your blog or website has a feed
2. Set up a feed if it doesn't
3. Set up a subscribe by email option
4. Validate your feed
5. Put an RSS icon that linked to your feed and another for your email option. 
6. Add the RSS feed to your header so your browser auto-detects the feed. 
7. Leave the link to your challenge post. 
And I finished fixing my links that were directing to my old blog. I spent about 3 hours today doing the bloggiesta. It was fun watching the transformations on other participants websites and hearing about their hard work. Thanks to those who stopped by and gave me more blogging tips!

P.S. Total hours of participation: 17...phew!


  1. I started to do the RSS challenge too, but I eventually stopped partly because it was taking so much time (and thought) and partly because I'm still working on my ambivalence about how much I want to market my blog. Good for you for sticking with it!

    I came over from MotherReader to see your poll and I'm eagerly awaiting the results -- I'm shocked that I'm the only one voting for Mockingjay, just shocked! =)

  2. Your new blog looks lovely.

  3. We spent about the same amount of time. I was ready to finish by the end. LOL. Nice looking blog!

  4. I loved seeing the pictures! I totally missed that challenge. Your blog is beautiful--it has a very peaceful feel about it. Glad you enjoyed the Bloggiesta!

  5. Your blog looks great! Sounds like your Bloggiesta time was productive :)

  6. Thanks for stopping by Chickity-Chick Lit!

    Sounds like one fun challenge. I may have to see if I have these on my blog (doubt it since I am new to the book blogging world).
