Bloggiesta Wrap Up

Bloggiesta Finish Line!
Okay, posting this late, I know. By the end of the weekend, though, I was a bit blogged out!

SO I did about 14 hours.

  • Got a new background.
  • Lost my favicon. Where did that thing go?
  • Improved the Website Grader score on this blog by at least 6 points.
  • Added metatags and description and whatnot.
  • Finished a book.
  • Got the review written and ready for posting.
  • Wrote a list post for a rainy day.
  • Did a bunch of mini challenges.
  • Spent a lot of time reading emails-- every time I comment on a blog, I try to remember to subscribe to receive emails of follow-up comments. As a result I had over 200 emails this weekend.
  • Took the evil piece of metal out of my desk.

Mini Challenges Completed:

Hmm... I did a lot of minis. In fact, I think I only skipped one. Sorry, folks, I was just too overwhelmed by it all (and had toooooo low a connection speed) to look at everyone's blogs! Isn't that terrible? Bad Britt. Next time I will definitely do better about cheering on more people!

And I'm taking a poll-- Leave the header as is? Or give it some sort of graphic as a background? I can't decide....

Sorry, Natasha. I have not the foggiest clue how many comments I left. I think it's somewhere in the very sad realm of 15-20. Again, Bad Britt.

I'm not sure I can think of anything to add next time! I just know I need to be more organized next time!


  1. Great job!

    Your favicon must have run off with my gravatar, which is also among the missing.

    I love your new background, and I'd probably mostly leave your header alone with it-- maybe change the color slightly.

  2. Great stuff! I love your layout! I may need to nose around here a bit. I loved the Bloggiesta - I learned so much and my blog is waaaaaayyyyyy cooler for it. :)

  3. imbookingit-- aha, that must be it!
    Actually I think there's a whole convention of favicons and gravatars somewhere, 'cause I know ours aren't the only ones missing!
    Yeah, I think I'm just going to adjust the colors of the header.

    Sheila- Thanks!

  4. You did a great job with the bloggiesta Britt! Thrilled that you got so much done!

  5. Thanks, Natasha!

    One other thing I accomplished-- I raised the Website Grader score of my scrapbooking/project blog from 21 to 46!! (Not entirely sure how, but hey.)

  6. Britt - you are amazing (and busy).

  7. Aw thanks.

    Not sure about amazing, but busy works. :D
