Bloggiesta To-Do List

This weekend is the bloggiesta! The day where I just sit down and do all the things with my blog that I've been neglecting. You may have noticed yesterday that I posted my mini-challenge to get the juices flowing on some new post ideas.

Here is my to-do list for the weekend:

  • Re-arrange my sidebars. By the way, I'm totally bemoaning the fact that my sidebars are just too narrow. It's really time for a blog re-design.
  • Do some SEO stuff. I've got to put in a lot of alt-tags for photos, and put in some keywords.
  • Update my review lists, and create one for audiobooks
  • Update my tags
  • Rewrite my advertising page, including an update of stats, update twitter, netgalley, goodreads, and other profiles.
  • Get caught up on all reviews for books I've read recently and schedule posts.
  • Organize email
  • Create yearly reader survey
And, if there is time, I'm going to work on my new blog design. We'll see.

What are you working on?

  1. I am mostly working on small stuff; upgrading my link list, scheduling a couple more reviews, writing templates for the posts I do most often, things like that:)

  2. Ooh, I like your idea of creating a yearly readers survey (I just stole it for my Bloggiesta list, too), and your idea for creating a review list for audiobooks. I don't have any reviews of audiobooks yet, but when I do, I'm making a separate list for them. :)

    Good luck with your goals!

  3. You and I both are in the "I need a blog re-design" situation. Hopefully you can tweak things easily since your layout is already so cute! Good luck!

  4. I'm such a fly by the seat of my pants blogger that I really admire you peeps who are so organized! The blog is always a work in progress for all of us, I suppose. It's never really done, no matter how much we fiddle with it. ;) Look forward to seeing the upcoming changes and features!

  5. I'm such a "fly by the seat of my pants" type of blogger that I really admire your organization, hah. We certainly keep planning calendars and documents for our features, but my to-do list is mostly in my head. ;)

    Look forward to the new updates and features!

  6. Great list! I also think my sidebar is too narrow ...

    Sounds like you have a great few days planned! :)

  7. I could probably widen your sidebars for you. :D It's usually not too hard.

  9. I feel you on the sidebar issue. I wish there were more wordpress themes with decent sidebar width too! It took me HOURS to settle on a theme which I thought gave me more room.

  10. Sounds like a fun plan. Good luck with it all. I'm glad I have my blog redesign behind me... but someone just posted a link on how to do drop down menus which I'd love and... gah, I think it's too hard!!

  11. SEO stuff is big on my to-do list as well. Good luck!

  12. SEO scares me big time! Fortunately, my husband has helped me a lot with that. But, I do need to make it better on my blog too. I think I'm going to put that off to next Bloggiesta, though, so that I can think about it more fully. It may end up being my only task since it's such a large one! Good luck with your SEO updates and good luck with your blog redesign. I hope Enna has figured out the kink with the sidebars.

  15. I really love blog redesigns! We moved over from Blogger to WP, redesigned, and I'm totally in love. I'm working on SEO too except more on the Meta tags, I will eventually get to alt-tags. Good luck. :)

  16. Yes, sidebars always give me problems too. I can't ever decide what to do with them, whether it's better to have one or two, so I always end up changing them every so often. You have a cute layout right now, so I'm excited to see what you come up with for your redesign. :] I need to do some SEO stuff too. Great list! Looks like you're almost done...Good luck finishing up!
