It’s been almost 6.5 hours since I started, and I’ve been working on Bloggiesta for about 3 of those. I was dealing with mom/kid stuff for the other 3, although I was able to listen to an audiobook for about 30 minutes.
I need some help
My check-in is under this section.
I’d been planning on updating my icons/avatars/favicons, although I forgot to add that to my Bloggiesta post.
Please help me pick the best one!
1. a cropped picture of me
2. A filtered picture of me
3. Filtered book 1
4. Filtered book 2
5. Filtered book 3
What else have I done.
1 hour on basic setup, initial post and this one, checking out challenges, and keeping up on blog related mail/twitter.
I’ve spent about 1.5 hours on the avatar/icon thing.
30 minutes on the mini-challenge from Emily’s Reading Room. I already had a Google Alert for my URL, and I’ve now set one up for my blog name, with a comprehensive search. I also added my full name, but only searching blogs– there are too many people that share it for me to want to know every time it comes up. I’ve asked questions if there is anything else I should do.
30 minutes on the mini-challenge from Lynn from Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile. I submitted a request to the BBAW directory and verified I have a request pending for Fyrefly’s Book Blogs Search Engine. I joined Blog Catalog and Blog Search Engine. I looked into several others on the Essential Blog Directories list. Several are fee based, at least one requires a 6 month history (I just hit 2 months).
And I REALIZED– If my I meet my primary Bloggiesta goal, and migrate my blog to self hosted soon, I get to do all of this again! Sigh.
Interestingly, choices differed by contact method, but they ended up being relatively evenly split between 1,2 & 5.
I think this means that the pictures with my face do work, so I’ll go with one of them, and looking at them today, I think I prefer 2.
And I can always change later :-).
