Making Plans for Bloggiesta

Bloggiesta-S15

I skipped out on the last Bloggiesta, but I can’t resist the lure of this round’s week long event, which takes place from March 23-29th. This is the perfect time of year to do a bit of Spring cleaning and I’m riding on a bit of a creative spark, which I want to take advantage of. While I don’t have a ton of work to do on the blog itself, there’s always some maintenance that needs to be done and getting ahead is a nice bonus. Here’s what I’m aiming for:

 

  • Backup the blog
  • Clean up media library and delete unused files
  • Double check old posts for Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin formatting
  • Work on load time with suggestions from Google Page Speed Test
  • Write and schedule posts
  • Participate in a Twitter chat or two
  • Check out the mini challenges for some new suggestions
  • Added: Optimized database tables, cleaned up post revisions, etc.

I have a mini challenge focused on tips for using Disqus, as both a blogger and commenter, if you want to pop back in and check that out. Here’s hoping we come back refreshed on the other end!

Update 3/29: A fairly successful Bloggiesta! I was able to finish up some of the major tasks I needed to get done, take part in the Twitter chats and get some posts scheduled. I didn’t finish everything, but did get some extra work done on The Socratic Salon, so overall things went well!
