First, on a non-bloggiesta note, I went back to work today after three months of maternity leave.  I missed Atticus, but I didn't cry once.  I'm getting back into the swing of things (working, taking care of kids, having time for my husband and books, lol) so I'm a bit late signing up for Bloggiesta.

In fact it seems like many folks participating in this blog-sprucing-up event are doing tons of maintenance work.  My goals are much more simple and I've listed them in order:

  1. Spend 5 - 7 hours working on my blog this weekend

  2. Come up with a rough schedule of things I want to write about for the next few weeks DONE!

  3. Fiddle with the template (but don't spend more than 30 minutes on it!!!) DONE! I spent WAY too much time working on my header!

  4. Write at least 5 to 7 posts for rainy days

  5. Fix some of my tagging inconsistencies

Alright.  I'm off to spend my first hour on Bloggiesta.  I'll update sometime tomorrow!

Hello there fellow library lady! I just wandered in from bloggiesta. Your new little guy is super cute! Congratulations!!!

Very smart goals Amanda!

And I'm so glad going back to work wasn't too hard for you. I had a hard time the first week with both of mine, but eventually I was okay. And I know they are better off for it.

I'm trying to fix up all these little things from moving to Wordpress still...sigh.

So, I'm tinkering with the idea of starting a blog. Especially since Wordpress has an iPhone app for it. I even have a title and concept worked out for it :-)
