  1. What a great list and very do-able. I understand the "tons more things to-do" cause every time I read someone else list I think I should add more to mine. LOL! Bloggiesta will never end if we take on the "tons more" LOL!!

    Good Luck on your list!

    1. thank you!! today is Sunday, the 1st, and am going to have to get off twitter soon else will never get on the reviews part of my to-do :)

  2. Your list is great! I also have to clean my google reader, I should start right now!

    1. that is still to-do for me and right after the twitter party!

  3. Glad you're participating! Hope you get a lot done!

    1. thank you.. even if i do not get all the things completed, it will be a lot more than i normally would have, so totally worth it

  4. Wow! Way to support the mini challenges! They are awesome, yes? Hopefully you are learning tons and having fun. Thanks for participating!

    1. yes, Suey - the mini-challenges really helped me get a lot accomplished, i am planning to keep looking at them post-bloggiesta (both this years and previous lists) to get more done..thank you for hosting

  5. Very neat way to show the challenges done, well done!
