My name is Care and I’m all for BLOGGIESTA! I guess I didn’t officially sign up for Bloggiesta – not that I won’t yet [updated to add: I did…]- but I didn’t know our plans for this weekend. So, today I’m finally getting around to thinking about it and setting some goals.
1. I intend to clear out my Google Reader and comment as much as possible at all my old and new favorite blogs. GR never stays ‘cleared out’ for long!!
2. I intend to find out more about Google Reader TRENDS and see what that’s all about. THX Florinda! and see her comment to this post – she has the how to…
3. I intend on drafting thoughts on Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
4. … Giving a glance to my categories to see if I should clean them up. ? maybe. Thanks Beth! not now, I’ll do this another time.
5. … Visit an idea I had for creating a challenge – public or private – to create a list of great books that feature elderly, mature, what-ever-is-PC-these-days-to-call-people-of-a-certain-age character and/or protagonists and/or themes. Water for Elephants is one example. This was a mini-challenge in the last Read-A-Thon and that’s the last I’ve thought about it.
6. … Read more reviews posted at the Women Unbound Challenge.
7. … Twitter #bloggiesta encouragement.
8. … Play with going to a three column look here. But I like my clean simple non-cluttered look, do you? DECIDED AGAINST>
9. … Clean up and write about CHALLENGES!!!!!!
10. … Check all links in my blogroll? Yep, that might be a good idea…
11. … Look fondly at my in-house tbr pile(s) of books that are somewhat also willy-nilly scattered in the guest bedroom. Shall I take some photos? NOPE.
12. … Read and respond to any and all comments to this post and on any other post I’ve ever written here.
13. … Rewrite my Who? What? Bio page. Did you know that on January 5th of this year, I had the most ever visits? and yet the page of my Who?What? got ZERO hits? Just how could that be? Must be an error…
14. … Keep adding to this list?!
15. … Wonder what I’m missing – surely, I’ve missed something.
16. … Question whether or not I need to do an alphabetical listing of my reviews. SEE NEW PAGE – I’ve got only 2009 but it was a faster task than I expected… Might be nightmare to keep up with, tho. Does anyone really care when you have a SEARCH? to me, a Search is MOST important.
17. … Try to figure out where my pie favicon went to when all the steps say I should have one. Huh… I’ve deleted and added a new one. WHERE IS IT?! It’s BACK!! 🙂
18. … Grade my blog!?!? the crazy site says I earn a 75. Because I don’t have tags on every post and no indexed pages?! Hoooey. I really don’t care.
19. … Order book blogger cards from Moo. Thanks Nat!
20. … Write a hand-written thank you note on paper to be mailed snail-mail to my Holiday Swap Secret Santa. THANKS!!!
21. … Investigate the copyright in footer stuff… Here’s what I found: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/how-can-i-put-the-footer-on-my-site?replies=7#post-358753
22. … Find a blogging buddy? Why not? 😛
