It's on like Donkey Kong! I'm bound and determined to get my blogs under control! I don't know how much time I'll be able to spend on it over the designated 2 remaining days but I'm going to do my best. I've had some things come up in Real Life that take precident over the blogs.

So here's a list of things that I'd like to get done here on the blog (Blue are my list for now):


Write reviews.

Write backup posts for a rainy day.

Write that great post idea from three months back.

Work on series posts.

Write guest posts.

Put out invitations for guest posts.

Conduct and edit author interviews.

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. Be consistent in those profiles with color scheme, images, etc.

Go get a gravatar.

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.

Analyze and re-evaulate your blog.

Back up your blog.

Learn more about blogging, read great articles, get inspired.

Make sure you have properly copyrighted your blog and know what to do when somebody reposts your material.

Brainstorm blogging topics.

Manage your feedreader.

Help other bloggers, answer questions, share your expertise (let’s face it – this is the best part of Bloggiesta!)

The sky’s the limit!
