Bloggiesta Update #2


I DID IT!! I finally found a Blogger favicon tutorial that worked. (At least, it works in Firefox. If you’re viewing this post in a different browser, please leave a comment and let me know if it’s working for you too.) I’m over a third of the way through my twelve hours, and the offline work is going well. The online stuff (link-checking, for instance) ... not so much. My excuse is that I don’t have broadband and hate hogging phone lines. And my atonement is to put those things at the top of my to-do list, to be worked on progressively through the coming weeks. My list now:

  • Add a favicon
  • Tinker with different fonts for my blog posts
  • Expand my blogroll and subdivide it into categories
  • Re-upload the award images missing from the right sidebar ever since the image host I used folded
  • Check for dead links
  • Write a new profile
  • Clear out my backlog of reviews
  • Add reviews written to the indexes
  • Create a stock of images for Fractal Fridays
I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to find time to make any substantial progress tomorrow, and spend all day browsing the tables at the Bookfest.

But I’ll do it just the same.


  1. Great work so far! I had to update my blogroll as well. So far I only removed ones that haven't been updated in months. I still need to add new ones to my blogroll.

  2. I love seeing all those crossed off tasks!

  3. What is Bookfest?

  4. Debbie: Thanks! Updating my blogroll will have to wait until I've actually rounded up some blogs to add, but I'll get there eventually.

    Natasha: So do I ... it's good for morale!

    Marg: The Bookfest is a biannual Lifeline fundraiser - the biggest second-hand book sale in the world. Heaven on earth, in other words; the fact that it's for charity is the perfect excuse to buy as many books as I can stagger home with.
