I had the best of intentions to complete the 31 Days to a Better Blog Challenge through Yeah Write.
It didn’t really happen. I even missed the link up to the final review post.
But, I’m still committed to making my blog as good as it can be.
So, since, as my friend at that cynking feeling reminded me, this is a lot to do well in just a month. So, I’m going to keep plugging away at this effort over time!

You know what? As I scroll through the list, I realize I actually did do a lot of this stuff this month. I’m already in blogging communities, forums, and I comment on other blogs… I am actually writing a review post write now, that is also planning my next steps!
I will continue to make improvements, and continue to blog about blogging. Because that’s what I love to do, and I want to be good at it!
Have you ever done a comprehensive blog analysis or participated in a blog improvement program? If you don’t have the time to do it yourself, I highly recommend Alison at Little Love Media. I was extremely pleased with the professional evaluation and all of her tips and suggestions that helped me tremendously!
Finally, I’m always interested in constructive criticism. Is there an element of my blog that drives you nuts? That could be better? Or that you really like?
