Bloggiesta starts on Thursday! Bloggiesta is a big virtual work party for maintaining and improving our blogs. It’s going for four days which will be a good amount of time for spring cleaning. Check out the Bloggiesta web site for other people’s sign up posts and the times for the Twitter chats.
First, I have the things I always do at the beginning of Bloggiesta:
Back up WordPress site with FileZilla Back up blog with WordPress Tools Do WordPress updates Test my website load time with Pingdom Tools as recommended by The Redhead RiterArgh! It’s slow (something I’ve noticed recently). I don’t know how to fix that. Run the security scan at Sucuri as recommended by Sophisticated DorkinessArgh, again! It found a couple of problems and I don’t know what to do about that.
Next, some things I hope to accomplish during this Bloggiesta:
- Complete one or more mini-challenges
- Participate in one or more Twitter chats
- Visit lots of blogs
- Fix up my categories, including banish “Miscellaneous”
- Update my Health Books page
- Look into the JetPack plug-in
- Look into the Yoast SEO plug-in
- Draft future blog posts
