Write back-up posts for when I am away and more or less off line for at least 10 days next month. Back up posts could be some of those background-posts on literary themes such as Southern Literature, that I have contemplated forever, my own little YA-challenge, what books I've bought lately and much more. Luckily I have a lot of ideas. RESULT: Managed to write one back up post.
Catch up on Blog Improvement Project. RESULT: I never got around to do this. Will do later.
Write posts including questions asked by other bloggers from the latest Weekly Geeks. RESULT: Accomplished.
Visit as many blogs as possible and write meaningful comments OR at least an "I was here" comment. RESULT: Accomplished
Tidying up labels-list and think about new labels to add. RESULT: Not accomplished
Adding new blogs to my blogroll. RESULT: Accomplished
Remove dead links and blogs w/o activity. RESULT: Somewhat accomplished
Asking the book-blogging community how to-questions:
Find out how to make a 3-columned blogger-blog without the system automatically deleting everything in the sidebar OR just install the darn 3-columned template and spend the time necessary to fill in the blogroll and all the other stuff that will go missing. RESULT: Accomplished, but still working on moving things around, adding new things etc.
Find out how stumble it, feedburner, technorati, etc works (and what it is!). RESULT: Somewhat accomplished, will think about usefulness of those items later
Find out how to make use of all the social networking-pages I have signed up for or deleting them. RESULT: Not accomplished
Find out how other Blogger-bloggers can actually see how many visitors they have, because I sure cannot figure out the stats I can check through my profile. RESULT: Not accomplished
I also participated in the mini-challenge hosted by Fizzy Thoughts, and while this was not a goal as such, I also got to tweet a lot and meet new tweeters! Great! I have spent a total of about 11 hours on the Bloggiesta.
Last but not least I want to say a huge thank you to Natasha for all her hard work making this Bloggiesta a fun event - and to her husband for those wonderful images!
