I learned of this from Suey @ It's All Bout Books this past Wednesday. She and Enna and Emily and Penelope and Jenny came to my publishing class as guests! Because, you know, book bloggers rule (and help authors and publishers out a ton).
Anyway, I'd like to be a part of this and get some things done here on the blog. As you can see I've revamped the blog already (I hope you like it!), which was not part of Bloggiesta, but which has motivated me to do more updates, etc.
So here are a few things I plan to work on this weekend in honor of Bloggiesta:
I replyed to all those who commented here (thank you!) and commented on a few more besides. From now on, this will be one of the ways that I am more social (internet-wise).
I've done some!
I've re-sized images to several posts, but I still need to do more. Soo many posts with images! Darn you old blog layout in which I made the widths so wide and thus made the post images large!
And now I've gone and done it. Check out the Pinterest Hamburger social media button I made in my upper left sidebar.
edit: ADD SHARE BUTTONS!
Do you see them down there? I added an FB like button and a Pinterest button next to the normal blogger share buttons. Lots of tweaking went on. If you'd like the HTML code for how to do it, let me know.
Got rid of that pesky default sucker. I'm referring to the default white border and shadow around post images that comes with this blogger template.
Well, I think this is enough to keep me busy, and thoroughly unproductive in other aspects of my life like laundry and dishes.
Hooray for blogging!

Aside from personal "to do" lists, another part of Bloggiesta is (are?) the challenges. These exist to help make blogs the best they can be. So whether you are a veteran blogger, and new blogger, or an in-between blogger, (or not even a blogger) there is a lot that you can learn.
Check out the challenges here:

Thank you! And good luck to all of those who are [participating in Bloggiesta!
