To-Do List For My Blog


I moved my blog from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress blog on 19th June 2013. Since then it has been a roller-coaster ride with extensive traveling and everyday blogging challenge to exigencies of daily life. Though the move to this new home for the blog has been a smooth one and almost all the major things are in place. However, I feel that there are many things that can be categorized under work-in-progress on this blog.

After this challenge is over, there are a few things that I need to take it up on priority.

My To-Do list for my blog is:

  1. Due to paucity of time, between the two ie reading and connecting with fellow fest participants & responding to the comments on my blog…. I chose the former. So almost all the posts of the Write Tribe Festival of Words and a few other posts have zero interaction from my side and this is something that I am not liking one bit. I have to do this on a war-footing ASAP.
  2. During the transfer from Blogger to WordPress, the categories of some of the posts went missing. So that needs to be rectified soon.
  3. While I never thought about SEO on Blogger, WordPress has a SEO Plugin. I need to add the focus keywords, SEO Title and meta-description for all the postsΒ  which would help in better visibility of the blog in natural or un-paid (organic) search results.
  4. Before I add the focus keywords, SEO TitleΒ and meta-description on all the posts, I need to read and learn about this techy thing.
  5. My OCD for cleanliness, some time back made me delete a folder of pictures on Picasa which had pictures uploaded on the blog. I thought since these picture were already on the blog, there wasn’t any need for duplication. It took me a week to realize that pictures I deleted on Picasa were linked to the blog so they got deleted from the blog as well. So, there are many Wordless Wednesdays posts which have no pictures now. I have an herculean task to search and insert those pictures on these posts again. While I may get most of the pictures on my system, there might be some pics which would have been cleaned from my laptop too. Wondering what I’d do about that situation…
  6. A friend suggested that I must have an ‘About Me’ page on the blog. I have been ignoring that for a while now. Guess, it needs to be worked on too.
  7. I guess, I can do with some beautification of my blog too, while I am at it.

Are there some things on your blog that are also in the category of work-in-progress?
