spring 2016 bloggiesta

Spring 2016 Bloggiesta Begins!

My original to-do list was in my Bloggiesta sign-up post, but I’ll recap it here:

  • Update my books and review links on LibraryThing, where my catalog still looks like 2015
  • Get acquainted with the other members of my Bookish Mastermind Group and figure out what we want from it
  • Do at least one other mini-challenge, to be decided during the week, Since I already have a LibraryThing task on my agenda the LT challenge is a strong contender, but I’m eyeballing the Litsy challenge too!
  • Assess The 3 R’s Blog at 90 days self-hosted. I moved the blog to self-hosted WordPress just before Christmas, and I want to assess whether I want to make any changes its look and feel. My focus will be on the following:
    • Design–I don’t foresee changing the theme at this time, but I may tweak fonts and colors
    • Related: Finish the Master Customizer CSS course
    • Tags and categories still need some work
    • Considering adding a page of favorite or “showcase” posts
  • Audience Participation Question for those of you on self-hosted WordPress: I’d love to know your favorite recommended plugins–please share in the comments! (Can this count for the Blog Critique mini-challenge?)

I may not get much done with any of this during the week–it’ll be a busy one at the office–but this Bloggiesta runs through next Sunday. (And I have next Monday and Tuesday off as my extended Birthday Weekend, so I may be having an extended Bloggiesta as well!)

  1. Thanks for considering my LibraryThing challenge! That makes me think of the possibility that we’re already friends on LT. I’ll have to add the option of sending me a message instead of friending me, in case someone who’s coming back after an absence does the challenge.
    I recommend Better Delete Revision for a plug-in that gets rid of all the saved drafts that get created along the way to your final published version of a post and can slow down your blog. Good luck on your to-do list!

    1. I thought we might be friends on LT already too…but we weren’t, so I just sent you a request. Apparently I will not be doing the challenge in order ;-D! And thanks for the plug-in suggestion.
