Thanks to everyone who visited, especially those who took the Blogroll Overhaul Mini Challenge (here)!
Here’s my final Bloggiesta update. I didn’t end up having as much time to visit other blogs as I had hoped, so did the bulk of my visiting on Friday and Saturday with almost none on Thursday or Sunday.
- Write at least 3 reviews (mini-reviews?) and schedule them
Finish at least one draft postDONE – Finished a review of We Are Here by Ellen Cassedy and scheduled it to post tomorrow a.m.
- Add to the page of book lists and readalikes
Host a Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge– DONE! My Blogroll Overhaul Mini Challenge has so far been completed by Amber Stults, Guiltless Reading, and Blue Mondays No More.
Participate in at least one Mini Challenge– DONE Trish at Love, Laughter, and Insanity challenged us to learn how to create templates for regular blog features or memes. I installed the Easy Content Templates plug-in she recommended and created a template for Weekend Cooking posts.
Participate in at least one Twitter ChatDONE, Sat. a.m. Back up blogDONE (easy so also backed up computer)
Update plug-insDONE (also easy, but just went with it)
Clear out revision posts using Better Delete RevisionDONE (Oops, had 180 revisions to clear out going back three months. Probably going back to the Mini Bloggiesta in June! Curious about this WP plug-in? See note below*)
Try again to figure out how to get the favicon in the address barDONE, Sun. a.m. It shows up in one spot now, anyway, although still not in the address bar in Firefox. I used the favicon feature built into my WordPress theme.
Thank you to Suey and everyone who helped out with Bloggiesta organization! I had lots of fun, although not lots of time, this weekend!
*Here’s what the Better Delete Revision Manager has to say about clogging up your blog’s back-end with saved post revisions (Sorry for any visual that comes to mind there!):
Post Revisions are a feature introduced in WordPress 2.6. Whenever you or WordPress saves a post or a page, a revision is automatically created and stored in your WordPress database. Each additional revision will slowly increase the size of your database. If you save a post or page multiple times, your number of revisions will greatly increase overtime. For example, if you have 100 posts and each post has 10 revisions you could be storing up to 1,000 copies of older data!
The Better Delete Revision plugin is your #1 choice to quickly and easily removing revision from your WordPress database. Try it out today to see what a lighter and smaller WordPress database can do for you!
