Bloggiesta! It is over...

Sadly, the Bloggiesta that Natasha from the Maw Books Blog hosted it over. I wished it would have been longer, but that's how things are. Maybe we can persuade Natasha to host another Bloggiesta soon?

Below is the list of tasks I had set out to accomplish. Now, with a huge list of reviews to write, I definitely didn't manage to write them all. Especially because I am currently pondering the how to write them, as you can see in my blog post from yesterday.

  • challenges

  • update individual challenge posts

  • update challenge progress post (and finally post the one for May!) have to add another challenge before I can post it, should be done soon!

  • I have been thinking about some of the reviews a lot, and I at first started writing reviews for each of the mangas I read, but I soon realized that I was repeating myself because the story lines overlap and spread out over more than one volume, so I deleted it all to have one review for those I read back to back.

    Now, I have quite a few more reviews started, and I even managed to write some blog posts I did not have on the list, but I'll post them not all just now. I'll post the over the next few days and maybe keep some for rainy days.

    ETA: Oh yeah, and my feed reader is hopefully up-to-date. If you seem something's still missing, just let me know through !


    1. Just cruising through the Bloggiesta participant blogs and meeting my fellow book bloggers. Sounds like you had a lot of fun with the challenge! Me too. :)

    2. I'm late in leaving a comment Kathrin, but wanted to say that I'm thrilled that you participated. And yes, I'm easily persuaded and I'll definitely do it again!

    3. Thanks a lot! I had a great time and can't wait for the second Bloggiesta :-) I hope I didn't miss it...
