Bloggiesta Fall 2013 Finish Line

My list was certainly ambitious and I didn't get to do all the things I wanted, but overall I'm pleased with my progress.  They were all things that needed to be done and we're a little closer to really whipping this blog into shape (especially with the new look we're working on).

The items that are crossed out are the things I managed to get done completely and the highlighted items are either a WIP or still pending.  Slowly but surely!

  • Our new look
    •  Put finishing touches and complete new design (so excited!) SOON!
    • To keep or not to keep Blog Roll? Decided to keep (at least for now) and updated it.
    • Figure out how to organize our MANY media buttons.  DONE!  They will be unveiled with the new design.
    • Figure out how to do Contact Form. DONE! Added new Contact Us page to the sidebar.
    • Update Review Policy. DONE! Also added new Contact Form JUST for review requests.
    • Rethink how we do threaded comments.  IntenseDebate isn’t working properly. This can wait for the new design so I passed on it for now.
    • Redo Menu Bar.  We deleted the old one and simplified it until the new one can be installed with the new design.
  • Catch up on all emails and clean up inbox!
    • Play catch & release with review requests.  STILL. SO. MANY.
    • Delegate review requests. Need more reviewers! May begin "hiring" soon ;)
  • Work on book reviews
    • Write pending reviews STILL. SO. MANY.
    • Make sure that "Reviews" and "Books Read" tabs are updated.  DONE!
    • Make sure that all reviews are on Goodreads, Amazon, and B&N. DONE!
  • Work on pending posts
    • Create ‘drafts’ for upcoming posts
    • Work on discussion posts
    • Make plans for Banned Books Week  Unfortunately, I ran out of time and I have some work events to attend so I have VERY little time to blog this week :( BOO!!
    • Arrange giveaway posts to find old books new homes.  Christmas giveaway? *wink*
    • Think about new ideas to revamp RAK. WIP!
  • Instagram
    • Finish #BSMPhotoADay list for October.  DONE!
