- I organized and cleaned up my Google Reader for Rebecca at the Book Lady's Blog mini-challenge.
- I made a favicon and a gravatar so that people can recognize me for Trish from Hey Lady! Watcha Readin’?'s mini-challenge.
- I participated in GallySmith's anchor text mini-challenge. Everyone should learn to use anchor text.
- I visited many bloggiesta participants and found a few new blogs for my newly organized Reader for Jill at Fizzy Thoughts mini-challenge .
- I set up a Google Alert for my blog URL to complete the mini-challenge hosted by Emily from Emily's Reading Room. And I've already gotten one alert from it.
- I wrote an elevator pitch for the mini-challenge hosted byDeborah from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food. In 30-seconds or less, here's what Passion for the Page is all about: Passion for the Page is a platform that allows me to indulge in my compulsion to read, talk about, and promote great books of all genres.
- I submitted my blog for inclusion in BlogCatalog and the BBAW Directory to complete Lynn from Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile's mini-challenge.
- And I graded my blog at Website Grader for Bookish Ruth's mini-challenge. Surprised to find that Passion for the Page has a grade of 91. I need to work on adding meta data to the site (as soon as I figure out how to do that ;o)).
4. I installed a twitter icon and an icon that will allow people to subscribe to Passion for the Page through a feed reader over in the right-hand sidebar.
5. I cleaned out all the dead links from my blogrolls. I still need to add links to all of the blogs hosting the challenges that I'm participating in.
6. And I've created another long list of bloggy to-dos ;o).
Total time spent Bloggiesta-ing: 20 hours
So I surpassed my goal of spending 12 hours fixing up Passion for the Page. It's amazing how long some tasks take! But I'm happy with the progress I've made. Thanks so much for hosting the Bloggista Maw Books! It's been fun and productive and I've learned a LOT!
