Biannual Blogathon Bash ~ Wrap Up Post




The winter Biannual Blogathon Bash has officially ended.  It was a fun weekend and although I wasn’t able to put in as much time as I had hoped or cross everything off my list, I did accomplish a few things and put in an estimated 14 hours of blogging.  Not record-breaking by any means, but it was 14 hours I may not have dedicated to my blog, so I am happy about that.

My favourite part was meeting some new bloggers, the number of talented bloggers and the enormous scope of blogging community in general,  is incredible!

This is my “to do” list, with the accomplished items crossed off.

1.)  I have one major task and it is a monster…go through all, OK that is not realistic, but I would like to get through at least, couple hundred of my 1,155 posts and check them for:  {Unfortunately, I did not get any of this done}

  • QUALITY – Up the SEO quality of each post.
  • PHOTOS – Check all photos and re-size and update images as necessary (I am pretty sure I will need to re-size almost all my photos)
  • BROKEN LINKS – Check for broken links
  • CATEGORIES – Re-categorize posts as necessary. I have way too many categories and I need to whittle them down to only 8 – 10.

3.) Visit my fellow Blogathon participants.  {Working on this}

4.) Participate in at least one, hopefully two of the Twitter Parties

5.)  Try to complete all of the “mini-challenges”.

  • Creating a Pinnable Image with Picmonkey
  • 5 Tips to Organize Your Blogging When You Work Outside The Home
  • Narrowing Your Niche
  • Categories and Tags
  • Improving Page Rank
  • Growing Your Instagram Following
  • Increasing Your Google+ Following
  • Growing Your Facebook Community
  • Increasing Blog Productivity
  • 15 Clever Ways to Get New Blog Traffic
  • Incorporating Microdata into Your WordPress Theme (Helping Google and other sites pick up your site and understand what it’s about)

Well I didn’t make it through the entire list as I had hoped, life happens, and I am happy with what I did accomplish!

A special thank you to Kathleen and her co-hosts, Ellen, Meagan and Kecia for the wonderful job they did and I am looking forward to participating in my sixth blogathon,  on June 20th – 23rd, 2014.

I hope to see you there.
