I made a Gravatar, which was weird since I always thought I had one. Maybe it was for a different account. Finally added a picture to my profile at Book Blogs.
Added Tweet This and the social link icons in my footer features.
I went to My Friend Amy’s Blog and posted some thoughts about my goals. I’m still trying to get specific about them. I’m good at the general stuff but coming up with a specific plan makes me feel scatterbrained.
A little cosmetics: shifted some sidebar gadgets around, made colored and outlined blocks around sidebar title headers, changed tab order, changed my post template a little and added a “recent posts” plugin. I did a lot of things and then undid them.
I backed up my blog on a remote server. I do it on my own computer all the time since I tweak the heck out of it and I always back up before I do that, but I put an extra layer of fun on it and sent it off to Dropbox.
I did some blog-hopping. I didn’t do as much as I wanted, but I spent a half hour or so on Twitter and clicked on the occasional profile and checked out blogs plus I went back to Maw Books and went through the links on the sidebar and went to blogs there. I saw a lot of good ideas and some very motivated Bloggers!
I don’t feel like I got much done, probably because I didn’t exactly address much of my original to do list. I had my blog analyzed at HubSpot and now I feel like I have an entirely new list, but that’s not for this weekend. I have reviews I want to write beyond the ones I already have in near-finished draft form.
You know, I think one of the things in the “Ten Things Bloggers Should Not Do” was ignore their readers, which was about yammering on about themselves. I think I said I don’t do that. I need to lower my score. Sorry!
Tame my mound of cheat sheets.
Put my To Be Read/Reviewed books in order at Goodreads.
Start gathering information for my eReader Information page.
Organize my affiliate information better and decide how/if I’m going to use it.
I’m keeping my official list manageable because I know I’ll add to it.
