I’m joining Natasha Maw at Maw Books Blog for the 4th Edition of Bloggiesta, a blogging marathon to “cross those nagging items off of your to-do list and improve your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.” Click on the badge for more about the marathon, which started this morning at 8 a.m. and lasts until 8 p.m. Sunday.
Instead of having half a dozen items on my list, I have two things I want to get accomplished today, tomorrow and Sunday:
- Delete my former blog, Just A (Reading) Fool. I’ve already moved the posts here. Now it’s just a matter of making sure backlinks go to this blog too and not back to a blog, which after this weekend will no longer be in existence. I already have started this project previously, but I think I have at least 100, if not 200, posts still to go through.
- Clean up my categories. At 40-plus categories, I have waaaay too many. My goal is to cut it to 20, with the main categories being “Body,” “Mind” and “Soul,” in keeping with the theme of this blog. Other than that, anything is up for change.
As the Book Borrowing Factory, where I work, is opening two hours late today because of snow, I’m going to try to get a jumpstart on the first project this morning, at least for an hour — and then restart after I get home later this afternoon.
If you are participating in Bloggiesta, what are your plans for this weekend? If you aren’t, what ways can you improve your blog? Join us if you like and work on at least one of them over this weekend.
