As BE Summer kicks off and goes into full swing, so does it’s sister event Tidyathon! If you don’t know what Tidyathon is, its a event that runs within BE Summer mainly over on Bookend Event’s twitter page where the main goal is tidying. Whether you are cleaning up your blog, your goodreads shelves, doing some updating on your brand, redoing your bookshelves for the ultimate perusal and aesthetic capabilities, or cleaning up your office for efficiency, Tidyathon is for all those things and more.
This event, I am going to try and be more active and productive on the Tidyathon side of things alongside Clo, so I thought it would be an epic way to kickstart my own Tidyathon with a goals list of things I would like to accomplish during this event!
So grabs some popcorn, get your dust bins, and lets make a To-Do!

  • Clean up CSS
  • Update Review Master List
  • Clean up and remodel Tags
  • Review / remodel Review Template


  • Clean shelves
  • Take books I (probably) wont be or have no interested in reading off my TBR shelf
  • Update Bio and links


  • Decide on Theme for Instagram
  • Implement said theme
  • loosely mimic theme/trend to twitter profile (banner and header)
  • Make game plan for social media usage (learn how to use it effectively)


I am adding this into Tidyathon as a way to keep me accountable to get this done!
  • Re-organize file drawers
  • Clean out under desk
  • Clean out Download and Documents folder on computer and put files in their respective places
  • Clean out sticky note / Pen drawer (Sam– for the love of God, throw away pens that don’t work!)

And there you have it folks! Those are my goals for BE Summer 2019 Tidyathon! I’ll be checking in around the middle of July to see how these are coming along with my goals but until then– are you participating this year? If so what are your goals? Anything similar?

Let me know!

    ooh that’s a nice list you have there! I’m taking part in tidyathon this year too but I don’t have much time to post about it on my blog because these next 10 days my blog is going to be swamped with BE Posts and other wrap up ish posts? Hehe it’s gonna be a wild ride. I do have a written list in my diary though and I’ll definitely update it on twitter 🙂
