Bloggiesta complete

The Finish Line

Here is what I accomplished:

1. Finish post for Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony (check)  2 hours
2.  Finish reading The Greengage Summer and review started (check-started not posted)  2.5 hours
3. I still do not have my post done for the Dalai Lama-I am overwhelmed by this task obviously.

    In trade though I did accomplish two other ideas-

4.  I closed out one email account, transferring my friends and
family to my gmail account.  Simplifing my life, just a bit.  I then plan to open a seperate gmail
account just for blogging.  I have half this project completed.  (check)   2 hours

5. I applied for an indiebound account and now will be able to link directly through them and earn tons of extra dough (??!!!)  selling books through my reviews!  My true master plan is revealed!!   1 hour

6.  I spent another 4 hours reading other posts and commenting on my regular blogs. 

11.5 hours spent Bloggiesta-ing!  Fantastico!

I loved the community of participation.  I would have loved to do more exploring but I failed to figure in the 2 hours spent chatting with friend and the library and the 5 hour drive to Chicago for stepdaughter's H.S. graduation.  The five hour trip did give me new post ideas and a chance to read the second book in Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series.  Peaceful girl and I are reading the first Harry Potter and what a joy it is to reread this, relishing in how well-written it is.  Such a true gem, J.K.!

That's it folks!  My first foray into Maw Book's Bloggiesta!! Thanks Natasha for hosting such a fun event!
