I decided to get a head start on some of the Bloggiesta Fall 2012 Mini-Challenges last night - working
1. Mini-challenge: Using a Blogger Journal and Calender
- Done! The picture at the beginning of this post is of my notebook with to-do list. I've tried using calendars for blogging, but it doesn't work for me. Instead I just draft the entries in my blogging software and save post ideas there.
2. Mini-challenge: How to Use Evernote
- Done! I downloaded this last night, and I'm using it to keep track of books read from different countries for my Olympics Reading Challenges.
3. Mini-challenge: 20+ Discussion Post Ideas For Your Book Blog (my own post) - I've already written and scheduled 2 Book vs. Movie posts coming up in the next few weeks.
4. Mini-challenge: Get Personal
- I don't usually share too much personal stuff here - BUT let me step outside that a bit and share that I started In Vitro Fertilization treatments at the end of August (after 2 surgeries to get ready). And egg+sperm met on September 11, 2012; I had the embryo transfer on September 16, 2012. And on September 26, 2012, I found out I'm preggers! Just 2 weeks which is VERY EARLY - but I can't help but be excited. The picture below is of the 2 embryos they transferred into moi!
There's a lot more I would like to do and I'll update again tomorrow with more progress.
Here's some of my to-do list: Done list!!!
1. How to be organized by scheduling posts, making lists and using templates
- Working on scheduling the first 2 weeks in October. Done!
2. Use a Website Grader.
- I already know I'm a big fail on Twitter & Facebook! Done - got 80, and decided I can stand to be a little more active on Twitter, and I've already started.
3. Build Your Blog Audience.
- Will subscribe to the blogs of at least 10 bloggiesta participants. Done!!
4. Catch up on Reviews!
- Thankfully, I only have 2 to do. Done!!
5. Gravitars and Favicons!
- I don't want a Gravatar, but I need to upload a favicon. Done - made both.
6. Changes that are happening with Feedburner and how to switch to a new RSS Feed
- I'm switching RSS to Feedblitz. Email has always been with Mailchimp. Done!
