blogiesta There’s a very inspiring list of mini-challenges up on the Bloggiesta post at MawBooks, and I’m feeling very motivated. Here are the challenges that I’m hoping to complete for Muse in the Kitchen over the next two days:

DONE:The Clean up your feedreader challenge at The Book Lady’s Blog. I have a separate Google Reader account for Muse in the Kitchen, and it’s a real mess. I’m going to go with alpha folders and see if that helps things a little. I’ve organized my feed reader! (1) Unsubbed from inactive feeds and (2) sorted all feeds into Alpha sort order.

The Write a post and save it for a rainy day challenge at Beth Fish Reads. This has to be an opinion or a list post, and just reading about the challenge, I came up with an idea – one that will come in handy for our upcoming trip, too!

The Go forth and comment challenge at Fizzy Thoughts. However, I want to stay within the niche of this blog, so I’ll be commenting at ten new food blogs that I find (the list of participants for Bloggiesta is made up mostly of book bloggers).

The Google Alert challenge Emily’s Reading Room. I haven’t done this one yet, and it’s about time, I think!

The Anchor Text challenge at GalleySmith.

The Blogging Tips and Tutorials challenge at Book Blather. This one will be fun, I think – the list of blogging tips and tutorials at Problogger looks very interesting, and I’m sure I’ll find at least one tip to implement here.

So that’s my list. I’m hoping I’ll be able to have the time to meet most of these challenges!
