Bloggiesta Min-Challenge #1: Set Goals

Pin It



Welcome to Bloggiesta! To start off, Rebecca asks us to set some blogging goals.

  • More buddy read posts.
  • Find advertising to support my blog.
  • Find a better way to have meaningful conversations about books on book-a-rama
  • Read 100 books
  • I posted a similar list last week.
For Bloggiesta though, here's what I plan on doing this weekend:

  • Update "About" page
  • Add disclosure.
  • Update footer.
  • Checked Website Grader again.
  • Add 2010 reviews tab
  • Get own domain.
  • Blogroll? (It might disappear. Don't worry you are all in my feed reader.)
  • Edit my labels (too many).
  • General cleanup.
  • Research new gadgets for blog
  • Brainstorm
  • Change my "brand"?
I might add to that list as I go. Other participants might inspire me.

    3. I need to work on that whole advertising thing too. So far the few offers that I have had have not been in line with my book blog as far as genres read, etc.

      Congrats on the new domain name too!

    6. Great list, Chris! Since we're both big on classics, I'd love to do a buddy read on something with you. Good luck in 2010!

    8. Suey- I picked out a free 3 column template. The site is linked at the bottom of my page.

      Natasha- I had an idea. I'll email you.

      Rebecca- That would be fun! we'll have to come up with something.

      Thanks for all the encouragement guys!

    9. Yay to you! Making great progress. I lessened the number of labels I have, too, trying to make fewer to fit more books in them. It decreased the clutter for me, though I don't know if anyone else noticed. Still- I often feel blog clean-up is more for the blogger than anyone else!
