Maw Books’ second Bloggiesta challenge has passed, but I approve wholeheartedly of the slow and steady method of starting/finishing the race (mostly because I forgot about it). I encourage you all to complete everything on the challenge list because it just makes sense.

Danielle from There’s a Book challenges us to create a blogging cheat sheet.
This list could include:
URLs you use repeatedly,
blog post templates,
links to royalty-free photos,
author interview templates,
book review templates.
A great idea, posted by some of Pam’s readers, was to put the completed cheat sheet into Google documents so it could be accessed it from anywhere. Danielle has posted her mock sheet here.

Pam from helps everyone to keep ahead of copyright issues by giving advice in how to:
update the homepage,
pay the fee for copyright registration,
check to see if people are posting your work as their own,
add an automatic copyright to your feeds.

Pam also suggests a WordPress plugin to help your SEO.

I used a different widget that works with I’ve added it to my cheat template, and you can check it out at the bottom of this post.

Comment here when you have completed both mini-challenges so I can give you a high five. 🙂


P.S. Don’t forget to keep posting your five comments a day on other blogs.

  1. Oh good! I’m glad to see the comments turned on, I was going to mention it and saw that Natasha had gotten to you first.

    I’m so glad that the bloggiesta challenges are proving useful and glad it’s something you’re doing even without the weekend. I wasn’t able to accomplish all that I wanted to, but I love that Natasha linked everything up so that you can keep going back. It’s a great way to get and keep your blog in tip top shape. Thanks for the plug too!
