I was able to get a lot of the items on my list accomplished this weekend!
**I wrote a few reviews usung some of the tips from Bloggiesta
**I commented on several blogs yesterday amd Friday but didn't manage commenting today.
**I spent several hours reading up on SEO today on April’s blog, Good Books and Good Wine and trying it out on one of my old reviews. It’s a lot of info but not too difficult. I also found the article Biz Ladies:SEO Cheat Sheet at Design Sponge which Natasha from Maw Books tweeted about very helpful. I’m going to write a post over the next few days about it, as much to organize my thoughts and what I’ve read and to share what I’ve learned especially for the Bloggers who requested it.
**I did some work on my Sidebar and have started posting the blogs I like to visit. I think I might want to post just the blog name without the most current post and date.
**I learned how to link my blog to Twitter and Facebook and to post social media icons on my sidebar for my visitors to follow. The latter took me quite a while. For some reason I couldn’t follow all of the steps on the Lisa’s blog Adventures of 2.0 about the social media icons. I think I was missing a couple of steps or something. I was getting too frustrated so I did a search and discovered a blog with some steps that I managed to follow...and it worked! (I cannot find the blog name right now but will update with it when I do!)
**I learned how to create themed pages from Charlotte at Charlotte’s Library so I was able to make a blog page listing the books I’ve read so far this year. I need to alphabetize it still but I’m pretty excited about this! I’m going to make a list of reviews and probably a list of my favorite books from last year.
**I learned how to post a “Like” Facebook button on my posts in a mini-challenge at Liza’s blog Sockets and Lightbulb to help promote my blog on Facebook
I also read the posts at some other blogs hosting mini-challenges although I didn’t participate in the mini-challenge. I found all of the info very helpful!
**Pam, Bookalicio.us. Posted about The Top Ten of HTML Basics
**Jessica of The Bluestocking Society wrote a great post about Five Ways to Make Your Reviews Stand Out
**Melanie from Melanie’s Musing’s had very helpful Five Tips to Write Reviews Faster
I'm edited this post because I want to say a big Thank you to Suey and Danielle from organizing Bloggiesta! You did a fantastic job!
