Bloggiesta 2. Update.

You can find the first post here: Bloggiesta 2.

As you know I'm participating in this lovely event. I will edit this post every time I do something from my list, so keep checking this if you like to be up to date :)

To-do-list - the real version:
-Make some headers for the memes I participate in.
-Find some new signatures (I love to switch between them.)
-Make my pages up-to-date. Perhaps try to make a normal menu, instead of the list I have now.
-Participate in at least 10 mini challenges.
-Make sure that all my reviews are also on Goodreads; with a link to my blog.
-Write every review and line them up in a nice order.
-Try to refresh some basics about English, because I sometimes really struggle with things like; then/than (and I can't correct those mistakes with grammar control
-Try to visit at least 25 participants from Bloggiesta, to see how they are doing with their to-do-list.
-Clean up the blogs I follow.
-Clean up my favorites and put every link in a folder, so I can find it back if I need it for my blog.
-Make some WoW's and Top 10 tuesdays, so I don't have to do that for a couple of weeks.
-Put some more information about myself on the 'about me' page. If I can come up with things I think can be fun for you :)
-Rating scale.

The new headers I made!

The new signatures.

Mini-challenges I followed.
Wordpress vs Blogger. Very helpful!
How to be organized by scheduling posts, makinglists and using templates.
How to use Pocket. I'm already using it and it's super handy! 
Get and give great guest posts. I could use information like this, helpful! 

Print your blog. I'm going to give this a try. It should be fun.
Six techniques to revitalize your old content. As you may have noticed; I finally got the Linkwithin!
Back up your blog. I decided to go with it and I made a wordpress account. Just an extra back-up. I found out that I'm pretty happy with blogspot. It's '' and of course it's private now :)
10 things you should not ignore. I'm actually ignoring SEO, so I really need to get more information about it.
How to embed a youtube video. I haven't done it before, but I might add a book trailer sometimes.
Basic photo editing. I'm not very good at it, so this was nice.

Rating scale.

Other things.
I rewrote the 'about me' page and I'm more satisfied with it now. My pages are updated and I'm still looking for a drop down menu. I think I'm going to introduce it in the new year.
I made a little note about important English grammars.
I wrote every review.

How are you doing? Link me up!
