Well Fall Bloggiesta is done and over for another year. I didn’t get quite as much accomplished as I had hoped too but still got a fair bit done. Here is my original list with my completion notes:
1. Check out all of the challenges
*What is IFTTT and How Do I Use It?
*Link Love: Give Good SEO
*Brainstorming for Post Ideas
*How To Use Google Analytics
*Favorite WordPress Plugins
*How To Make Goodreads Work For You
*50 Bookish Things to Do Before You Die
I didn’t get all of the challenges completed that I had hoped, but I will definitely be utilizing those posts through the week because they are fantastic! I found out how to check my social networking with Google Analytics which was awesome because Analytics normally confuses me and I just end up using my StatCounter plugin. I also got a lot of great plugins, Evergreen being my favorite because it’s such a better automated Tweeter than Tweet Old Post in my opinion!
2. Participate in at least one Twitter chat
I didn’t get to participate in any of the Twitter chats which was disappointed because I had a great time last time. I’m going to set an alarm for the next Bloggiesta!
Blog hop to at least 10 blogs/goal listsI visited a lot more blogs this year than ever before I think. I love looking at lists, and I actually got a lot of great future ideas 🙂
4. Write all pending reviews
Yup, this didn’t even happen… I think I got 2 out of 10 done!
Update review indexes/fix review indexes I updated all indexes and also crossposted my reviews, posted to Pinterest & Stumbleupon which felt so accomplished 🙂
6. Draft at least 3 discussion posts
I didn’t get them finished but I rough drafted ideas & created the graphics so that’s a huge step up from where I was.
7.Draft at least 3 Tips from an Organizer posts
I didn’t complete them but once again, I jotted down rough ideas & created graphics.
8.Schedule until the at least the first week in October
This is about 95% done, with the exception of the discussion & tips from an organizer post plus any promotional posts I’m waiting on, finished 🙂
9.Format all old posts to match new theme
This is a HUGE task, one I think will take me the remainder of 2013… definitely didn’t come close to getting this completed.
Update all book blogger settings
Got everything set up to how I like it, it actually took no time so I don’t know why I put it off so much!
10. Update all old Author Taxonomies
This is about 50% done. It also comes into play with matching my old posts to new theme… it will take a while.
Schedule Tweets for postsThis was actually super simple to complete, every time I drafted a post, I scheduled the Tweet 😛
12.Update all pages
Only about 50% done… I hate doing this in all honesty!
Check linksWhen my RSS feed broke a couple of weeks ago, it has caused me to panic immensely about this so I now check them anyway every couple of weeks. I didn’t have to do a lot because I knew quite a few were fine, but I still rechecked.
This also needed to be done for a while because I had some outdated buttons/broken links.
15. Check out Mailchimp
Didn’t even touch on this… I really need to sit down and check this one out.
Back up blogDone 🙂
17. Update tags/categories
I didn’t start this at all!
Update review policyUpdated this entirely, which was great because I hadn’t since June!
19. Empty emails
About 50% done? This was a lot of work!
20. Empty reader/reorganize
About 80% done… again so much freakin work!!!
