Bloggiesta Time! Change is near, dun dun DUN!

10 June 2010

(Isn't the little boy so cute in the button???)

Aren't you so excited for Bloggiesta?? I so am!
It's scheduled to take place from June 11, 2010 to June 13, 2010, and that means 3 days of cleaning up time and change! I'm copying the list:

  • Write reviews. (check)
  • Write backup posts for a rainy day.
  • Write that great post idea from three months back.
  • Work on series posts. (what??)
  • Write guest posts. (check)
  • Put out invitations for guest posts.(check)
  • Conduct and edit author interviews. (check)
  • Create template posts for your future reads (ie: title, images, linking, tags, etc,) so you can open up, write review and post without being bogged down with technicalities
  • Clean up your tags, archives, books reviewed list, etc.
  • Create a text file (or Google Doc) of cheat sheets (html codes, post url’s, etc)
  • Improve your blog template, clean up sidebars, add a favicon, install those plugins that you’ve been meaning to do.
  • Add or edit your about me page, review policy, disclosure policy, privacy policy, create landing pages (for example – an about me for Twitter readers page) or any other pages you might have.
  • Any bloggy type housekeeping that you’ve been neglecting.
  • Clean up and update your challenge lists. Link up your posts with hosts.
  • Make sure all of your social network profiles are up to date. Brand yourself through those profiles with color scheme, images, etc.
  • Go get a gravatar. (what????)
  • Visit the Blogging Tips group on the Book Blogs Ning and find ways to improve your blog.
  • Work on any specialized projects that you may have going.
  • Clean out and organize your feed reader and blog subscriptions.
  • Create an elevator pitch.
  • Make business cards.
  • Find a blogging buddy. (check, go affiliates!)
  • Add more photo's/graphic images to posts- YES!
So hurrah! I'm planning on tidying up my blog layout, getting rid of widgets and all, but don't worry, I'm keeping my template. I've got a designer hired to work on my header, but she hasn't gotten back to me in almost a month, so boo-hoo to that plan!

Otherwise, given my high self-esteem, I think my blog is perfectly awesome the way it is. The stuff highlighted in red is just good suggestions that I'm going to follow. Hehe :D
