Welcome to our Fall Mini-Bloggiesta.  

It’s happening from September 17-20.  Click the link that will take you over to the Sign-Up Linky (above).

And here is the Starting Gate Post.

I have SEVEN blogs now, down from the eleven I had the last time I celebrated this event.

Here is a rudimentary to-do list:


 do two mini challenges – Blogroll Overhaul at Bay State Reader’s Advisory; and Creating Post Templates, from Trish, at Love, Laughter, & a Touch of Insanity.
❏  change or fix one thing on your sidebar – Removed three things from sidebar
❏  add a page (about me, contact, policy, etc)- Added About Me page and Some Favorite Blogs.
 change one thing on your layout and/or look –  Changed header & background images
 comment on other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs
❏  participate in at least one Twitter chat

Changed theme, header, & background at Serendipity blog.  New screenshots below

As you can see, I added a few more blogs to work on.  I started early, knowing that I would be expanding my list.  I will be over to visit your blogs…hope you will stop by here.  

See you at the party!







    1. Thanks, Elizabeth…I love “collecting” background images that speak to me in some way.

      And I always seem to start the Bloggiesta festivities ahead of time, because I am so excited. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Starting early is very smart when you have seven blogs! Your design changes look nice! I’m not going to try to fix my blog design this time around because it will suck up all my available time. Happy Bloggiesta! That margarita looks good, too!


  2. I have no idea how you manage to keep the 7 blogs going! I’m always struggling with one so hats off to you Laurel. And I like your about me page, I always like to know a little bit more about bloggers I follow. Oh and we have lots of the same fav blogs too! 😀


  3. Goodness, I can’t believe you are able to keep up with maintaining seven blogs! I can barely keep up with one (on top of a full-time job, anyway).
    Congrats on getting so much on your to-do list accomplished already! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier, and have fun with the rest of Bloggiesta 🙂


  4. As everyone else has said, seven blogs is pretty impressive, but I guess since that’s a cut back number it feels like a breeze! I used to keep multiple websites and wouldn’t want to do it again, so go you for being so motivated!

    Good luck with the rest of your list, it looks like you’ve made some super progress with it so far 🙂


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
