How was your Bloggiesta? Did you do the things you thought you would? Let me compare my plans vs. reality:
The Top Ten of HTML Basics by Pam at Bookalicio.us. (@BookaliciousPam)
- Using Pinterest to Promote Your Blog by Joy from Joy’s Book Blog (@joyweesemoll)
How to Build Readers for Your Blog Through Commenting by Sheila from Book Journey (@bookjourney) (I pretty much know this, but I’ve really fallen down on it lately and could use a little inspiration!)
- SEO: Get Noticed by Search Engines by April from Good Books and Good Wine (@booksandwine)
Another post I’ve saved for another challenge I didn’t end up doing. It didn’t fit into my Bloggiesta goals this time, but I think it will be very useful for future reference!
Grader.com has made some changes since the last time I used it, and its website and blog-grading tools have been re-worked as “Marketing Grader.” Those changes have dropped my blog score from the mid-90s to 80%, but the feedback and advice from the process remain valuable. This is a fast, free, and informative exercise, and one worth repeating periodically.
