Bloggiesta: AKA Can I Do This With A Margarita?

Hey friends, it’s time for one of my favorite bi-annual events, Bloggiesta! What other event do you get to eat delicious food, drink margaritas AND improve your blog? For reals. Anyways, today is the FIRST day of Bloggiesta and it goes until  Sunday night. Bloggiesta is hosted by There’s A Book and  It’s All About Books.

Bloggiesta, ole, pedro, blogging marathon


I made a poster with my to-do list, but because my handwriting is god-awful, I thought I’d type it out as well.

About April (Books&Wine)

April is in her 30s and created Good Books And Good Wine. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and toddler, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood.


  1. Perhaps you should temporarily name your blog “Good Books & Good Tequila!”

  2. I love your handwriting and your poster.

    Rock this Bloggiesta!

  3. You can do it!

  4. Your handwriting is so not terrible, you little liar! Also, WAH, I wish I had the problem of having too many books to review, HAHA.

    Ooh, I really like your task of updating Pinterest. I super need to do this, I think. I always feel bad though like I’m spamming the hell out of my Pinterest followers. So I tried to do like 12 books read a day to catch up but then I kept forgetting.

  5. Awesome list! I stole your Pinterest idea — I just remembered I had a Pinterest account and was sharing reviews of my favourite books!

    Good luck with your list!

  6. hahahaha…looking forward to seeing your review of Wise Man’s Fear 😛 as long as you get it reviewed before the next one comes out, I guess…

  7. Wow, that’s a lot of reviews to write! You can do it! 😀 I need to find out more about using Pinterest for book reviews—I’ve never heard of doing it until today! I have a pinterest account set up, but I barely use it for anything. I think it’s time to start figuring it out!

    Great goal list!

  8. I actually had a margarita last night! lol.
    I hope you had a successful Bloggiesta!

  9. I went the WHOLE WEEKEND without a margarita! How’d that happen?!

    As I was poking around, I noticed you were reading Boy in the Box. I have a review copy of that on my reader right now. I’m about 1/3 of the way in, and pretty good so far!


  1. […] One does ponder whether it’s possible to successfully Bloggiesta with a margarita? […]
