Welcome to our first Bloggiesta post – ever. BookShelfery (formerly The Bawdy Book Blog) is nearly 4 years old and we have NEVER participated in this, largely because I (Jennifer) always find out about it way too late LOL. You can still sign up here! Bloggiesta is a chance for bloggers to take care of tedious things on our punchlist and also have fun while doing it. So without further ado, here’s our list.
Clean up tags Look at category hierarchy to determine if it needs to be culled and/or re-vamped Schedule Indie Author Excerpt Posts (all done!) Clean up Indie Author Excerpt archive Write two reviews
- Go through old reviews to add to Goodreads using UBB plugin
Clean out plugins Understand what the hell the Core control plugin is and find out if I can get rid of that sumbitch Clean out Form entries Purchase UBB Review plugin? (I’ve decided not to do this for now) Visit other Bloggiesta posts
- Participate in Twitter chat
- Find out why Facebook uses the wrong images when sharing a post
Clean out email
- Post existing reviews to Amazon
Find a new backup plugin Organize footer widgets
- Create a movie review template
Create an Indie Author Excerpts template Write a discussion post (new) Update plugins (new) Find out if Gravity Forms is actually using the correct email when notifying from form (new) It is! woooo!
- Re-attach images in older posts that were disconnected during the migration – but let’s be honest, that will probably never happen…ever (new)
Update About page with new pictures (new) Edit Review Policy page to remove mentions of old blog name (new) Combine policy pages into one, insert anchors to navigate page (new) Insert anchors into Welcome page (new) Fix author interview archive (new) Create simple header (new)
I’ll probably add to this, so if I do, I’ll add (new) to the end. If you think I missed something, let me know!
Bloggiesta Update 9/21
Well I managed to get through a lot of our list! Our tags probably need to be cleaned up a bit more, but that’s okay, I got rid of about half of them. And while I posted using the #bloggiesta tag on Twitter, I didn’t participate in any of the chats, because I was so busy with this list! I kind of siloed myself. The rest of the remaining list are things I do legitimately need to take care of, but all in due time, because I feel very accomplished this weekend! This one’s for the books!
