Delete plug-ins and remove widgets that are no longer in useThis didn’t take that long, but it reminded me to mention the plug-in for WordPress.org blogs for advanced editing of images that you used to be able to do before the last WordPress.org update, called Manage Image Borders. This plug-in lets you add a cushion of space between an image and text.
Delete revisions taking up unnecessary space
I use Better Delete Revisions for this, thanks to this post from April at My Shelf Confessions. Since I started using this plug-in, 5,459 redundant post revisions have been removed that would otherwise have been making my blog take longer to load. I do a lot of revising!
Update blogroll to include only active blogsI deleted a few blogs that are inactive, on hiatus, or whose authors have gone into temporary or permanent retirement, including, sadly, Raging Bibliomania, Read in a Single Sitting, and Roof Beam Reader.

Back up blog
I do this pretty regularly, but Judith at Leeswamme’s Blog reminded me that I haven’t done it in a while. I think BlueHost backs up automatically for me, too, in case of emergency, though.
