This weekend is Bloggiesta, which means bloggers everywhere will be doing some bloggy housekeeping. My to-do list is short, but they are things I’ve been putting off for too long:
1.) Cull my Google Reader and email subscriptions. There is no reason I should receive even my favorite blogs two different ways, but I do. And there is no reason for me to have blogs with partial feeds in my Reader unless I absolutely adore them, because I almost never click over. I want it all at once. And I’m dropping anyone who’s doing the “I’m posting every day this year for the sake of posting, even though I don’t really have anything to say”. So sue me.
2.) I’m going to try to get Link Within to work ONE MORE STINKIN’ TIME, because I can’t find anything else I like as well. I don’t understand why it worked so well when I was on Blogger, and now that I’m on WordPress I need special dispensation from the Pope for it to pull properly.
3.) Figure out what I’ve done to make my WP Dashboard look so dorked up. Dianna, help! I want mine to look like yours!
4.) Write some posts in advance. I’ve used up my stockpile. I got nuthin’.
Now here’s what I would like everyone else to do for Bloggiesta. Because you know I’m all about telling other people what to do. In fact, I get paid pretty good money to tell people what to do all day long, and I’ve been doing it for a very long time. Then I come home, where I do it for free! Anyway, I want everyone, please, for the love of all things holy, to get rid of the autoplay music, the comment verification, and anything that is brightly colored or blinky. Thank you. And yes, I realize that now the chick with the hot pink text on a black background, the song from her wedding on autoplay, and a partial feed showing up in my reader every damn day will no longer be following me. And I’m just fine with that.
