Of course, now I am going to have to watch the 1949 movie version of On The Town with Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly.
I did spend a lot of time yesterday finishing up the Bloggiesta tasks and challenges I set for myself.
1- I did backup this blog and my other blog, Randomly Reading. I'm always afraid I'm going to do something and lose both blogs, so I like to have up-to-date backups and I've been neglecting that lately.
2- My pages are all up-to-date now, but I am thinking about adding an author index.
3- I made a new banner for my Randomly Reading twitter page (@randomlyreading) using PicMonkey, but I don't think I like it, so for now, I'll keep the one I have.
4- I still need to work on the blog folders on my hard drive. I have one for each blog, and though it sounds like I'm organized, they are still a mess with lots of photos, ideas and stuff. I have a gazillion comic strips that need to be ordered. I am a minimalist in my real time life, but something close to a hoarder in my virtual life (easy enough to understand, I have 128 GB available, not to mention 1 TB on my backup drive. If I have that much space in real time, I would be my own small country).
5- I spent time learning how to make an inforgraphic, thanks to Valeria at A Touch of Book Madness and using Piktochart. Good to know for future use.
6- I checked the loading time of my blog using Pingdom Tools (thank you again, Joy at Joy's Book Blog, for sharing this tool). This blog was faster than 64% of blogs tested and there is an analysis for making your blog load faster, but I will have to spend some time with that to figure it all out.
I feel pretty good about getting all this done. Now, back to reading….
