Bloggiesta Finish Line
I finally got some time to devote to Bloggiesta. I promise this is the last technical post for awhile. I’m going back to book posts!
My security worries were mostly addressed. I posted in detail about those: Web Site Security — A Bloggiesta Chore
I finished these mini-challenges:
- Bloggiesta Mini Challenge: Bring the Hits: Building a blog audience commenting on about 40 blogs over the Bloggiesta weekend.
- Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge: Let’s Get Personal revamping my About page to make it reflect me and what I do with my blog more accurately.
- Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge: CHANGING YOUR RSS FEED reverting from FeedBurner to the native feed for RSS and switching to MailChimp for email subscriptions to my blog. I wrote more detail here: The Obligatory Updated my Feed Post.
While I was waiting to get brave enough to make the changes I wanted to make regarding FeedBurner, I wrote a post that will help both bloggers and blog readers while we’re all wading through this minefield, Feedburner Headaches and Google Reader Tips for Bloggiesta. If you’re reading blogs in Google Reader and you’re getting duplicate feeds, this post will help. And if you’re a blogger who is going to miss the stats from FeedBurner, this post will help a little bit. Be sure to read the comments for an even easier way to get stats contributed by Memory of Stella Matutina.
I enjoyed both of the Twitter chats that I joined — Friday night and Sunday evening. Fun and helpful!
I wanted to do so much more. So, I’m looking forward to the next Bloggiesta!
Looks like you got a lot of good work done! I’m still pondering on the FeedBurner dilemma, but I’m off to read your thoughts.
Thanks for letting me know about the Feedburner thing in the twitter chat the other day! Good job on getting mini-challenges done, and I can’t wait for the next Bloggiesta too!
I decided to leave my Feedburner as it is for the time being, although I shall be bookmarking your post for future reference. I can’t wait for the next Bloggiesta either, no doubt I’ll have a ton more little jobs that need doing by then!
Thanks for stopping by! I completely forgot to change the RSS feed, to be honest. I did change the subscribe by email option to Blogtrottr though. But the RSS stats escaped my mind. Will do it this week.
