Biannual Blogathon Bash ~ Winter Wrap-up Post ~

Biannual Blogathon Bash

It was a fun and very busy week-end.  In addition to the usual week-end happenings, which included a dinner with two of my siblings and their spouses last evening,  I participated in my second Biannual Blogathon Bash.

The Blogathon ran from 8AM Friday Jan 25th to 8AM Monday January 28th, that’s a possible 72 hours of blogging!

You certainly weren’t expected to blog for the entire time, just to set aside as much time as possible over the week-end to accomplish some blogging housekeeping chores!  How much time did I spend on blogging chores?  Last Blogathon I clocked in 17.5 hours, this time it was just about 18 hours.  I was a bit disappointed in myself…just couldn’t seem to focus on one task…kept getting sidetracked :)

What did I accomplish in these 18 hours?  Well…I have to admit, I was not able to cross off everything on my to do list.  However, I am happy with what I did accomplish and will definitely do it again.  It was great motivation to dig in and tackle some of those jobs that have been put on the back burner.

Here’s my “to do” list and I crossed off  the “chores” as I completed them.

  • go back through all posts and add “rel=nofollow’, add categories and tags, put only my own or CC pictures on posts, make more SEO friendly  {OK, who am I fooling, that alone will take me all week-end. {lol}
  • Clean up and organize my e-mails
  • Update my “Recipes”.
  • Update my “Buttons & Things” tab.
  • Participate in the ”Mini Challenges” available for this blogathon.
  • Complete 2 of the reviews/giveaways I have pending.
  • Start organizing a couple posts for the upcoming  A-Z Challenge {Starts April 1st}
  • Visit my fellow “Biannual Blogathon Bash” participants. {I did not make it to everyone but I plan to continue working my way through the list, hence the “partial” cross off!}

Looking at this list, I feel like I accomplished some tasks that would not have been completed {or almost} if I hadn’t participated in this Blogathon.

A big thank you goes out to Kathleen for all the hard work she put in to making this event a success!

    You did a super job and have accomplished so much. It was fun, esp. being on the Twitter Party and “talking” there. Thanks for you help with my site, as well.
