I suggest you make a list of what you want to work on during the Blogathon Bash. I mention some things in the About page but here are some more.
- Clean Up your Pinterest Account (get rid of ones that don’t link back to source – why?)
- Sign up for Feedburner to better take care of your RSS subscriptions.
- Register your blog with Alexa.com and learn what your score means.
- Clean out your email inbox
- Create email templates for common types of emails you send
- Sign up for Google Analytics and start monitoring your blog stats.
- Add social media icons to your blog.
- Go back to old posts and fix them up (check links, add photos, fix typos and poorly written text)
- Come up with a blogging schedule.
- Redo/Do your About Me page.
There are just so many things you could work on!
I will be doing a full review of it soon but for now, here’s a little bit about what to expect. After you check out this little video, click the banner below to go to the website and learn even more.

After you’ve signed up to participate in the current blogathon, you may want to do the following:
- Make up a blog post stating your participation in the event. Include the event button (there is HTML coding on the signup page) and a link to this blog. Perhaps put the button in your sidebar.
- Post about your participation on facebook and/or twitter. You can use the share buttons on the signup page
- Start your list of what you would like to work on during the blogathon. Just a personal list to work from. Doesn’t mean you will accomplish it all or that you won’t do something that is not on the list. It’s just a guide.
- Work out how you are going to spend as much time blogging as possible. Arrange for time off of work (if you can), set up babysitters, shop for easy to make food and snacks etc….
