Saturday was another good day and I tackled two things:
- The Blue Stocking Society’s Revitalize old content challenge
I really liked this one. Related posts are really a good idea and I am quite happy with nRelate. It is rather good and no work at all. What I did after reading the challenge is install the “Tweet old posts” plugin that automatically tweets older posts to being them back to the attention of twitter followers. I tweeted one immediately (you have no say in what post, but can exclude categories and specific posts from the pool) and it re-tweeted a locations post – good choice, .
- Smash Attack Reads’ Grade yourself challenge
My overall score is 85, which is pretty good, especially seeing that I don’t promote my blog much or that I don’t monetize it in any way (not counting the affiliate links, if I depended on them I’d have starved a long time ago).
What this grader obviously wants me to do is get a Facebook page. Thanks, but no, thanks. I do have a Facebook account but it is rather independent from any other online activities and I want to keep it that way.
It complains about lack of tweets about my content and/or Facebook shares. Well, it IS possible to do that easily from every post, so if people don’t want to do it, I can’t do much about it. I mean, I hardly ever tweet or share other people’s posts so I am not one to complain.
A 301 redirect is a good suggestion. I looked into that already some time ago and somehow – I can’t remember why – I couldn’t do it. I hate messing directly with program files, so I might look into a plugin for it. I will look into that again.
Today I want to update my Goodreads account and then I will be done. Not bad at all! How are you all doing?
