I’ve been procrastinating on blog maintenance issues for a week now, saying that “I’ll do that during Bloggiesta” so I really should get started on doing something now that Bloggiesta is here! I’m back from work at the library and ready for a weekend.
Here’s my running list of things to do. I’ll cross it off as I made progress, I’ll add to the list, and on Sunday I’ll post a wrap-up of how much time I ended up spending and what I got done. I rarely have a lot of time to work on my blog during the weekend, so I’m really only hoping for about six hours, although I’d love ten hours.
I may continue my own Bloggiesta on Monday if I don’t get a lot done now!!

P.S. Sorry for the double-post today. I really wanted to get that review up, and since I didn’t have much to say about Housman, it seemed like it would not overwhelm you all. I don’t intend to post before Sunday night but I might have my 2009 year in review up tomorrow!
ETA: Friday night, almost midnight. I’ve just spent about 8 hours this afternoon/evening/night doing a few things on the list. And it’s barely dented. I may not get much more time this weekend but then again I might!
ETA: Monday night, 8:30. I spent another 1 or 2 hours on Saturday, no time on Sunday and about 2 1/2 hours today. Slowly and surely. I shouldn’t have procrastinated it all!
