Final Bloggiesta Progress Update
-Signed up for a Picnik account so I can make better looking graphics for blog posts. I'm a dunce with graphic programs, and even I could figure it out! I spent about an hour creating graphics for upcoming posts.
-Decided what prizes I'm giving away for my Blogoversary in March and set money aside in the budget and wrote and scheduled those posts.
-Wrote several more rainy day posts. And by several I mean about fifteen. I now have 30+ posts scheduled as far as the end of March. It feels great!
-Backed up my blog.
-I ran my blog through Website Grader. My results were pretty meh, so I have some work to do.
-Took off word verification on my comments. I haven't had any issues with spam, so unless that happens I'll leave it off. I know a lot of people hate it, so I want to make commenting as easy as possible.
Overall, I didn't participate in any challenges like I did last Bloggiesta. I read several of the posts, but I already had my time planned so succinctly that I didn't have a lot of time left over for challenges. For next Bloggiesta I'll leave some time open for challenges and for reading more posts from past Bloggiestas.
