BIP Week 1: To Do List

I decided to take part in the 2010 Blog Improvement Project because it has been about 8 months since I started my blog, and even though I like what I see, there are some areas that I think could be even better. Every 2 weeks there will be a new task to complete and you can tailor it to your needs.

This week's task is to make a to do list of things that you would like to accomplish thoughout the year. I have a few things that I have thought of so far and will probable add more as time goes on.

So far, here is what I have:
  1. Find out what an RSS Button is and possibly add one (I have never known what it is)
  2. Add the option to subscribe via email
  3. Add a Tweet this widget (having some problems with this)
  4. Add a seach box
  5. Work on having some back up posts to post when I am very busy
  6. Add to my About Me section (I used to have a better one, but then something happened and the widget disappered so this one is lacking)
  7. Add a shared items gadget from Google Reader

I admire the way Marie did a massive overhaul at her blog last year during the Blogista event and that is one of the things that inspired me to take part in this challenge.

Keep you eye out for some changes for the better around here this year and let me know what you think!

  1. Heather,

    Sounds like you are planning to make some great improvements to your blog! An RSS Feed stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a way for people to easily follow any updates you make to your blog. Do you use anything like google reader? The RSS button basically adds your blog to the viewers feed. Let me know if you need any help with any of your improvements! I love geeky web stuff! :)

  2. Can't wait to see what you'll be adding..of course, you just know that I'll then come bug you about how to do it on my blog;) (That's usually what I do to Marie!)

  3. You've got some great and very do-able goals for 2010! Excited to see your improvements over the year to come- I'm doing the BIP, too.

  4. Hi Heather! I am doing the BIP too and am looking forward to seeing what changes everyone is able to make with this project! Good luck!

  5. Thank you for joining the blog improvement project! It is great that you have seen someone else change their blog and know that it is possible.

    Here is a site that tells you how to add an RSS feed:


    If you need any help just ask.

    Good luck!
