Comienza La Bloggiesta

Let the Blog Party Begin!


Thanks to Natasha at Maw Books we all have this weekend about twice a year where we come together as book bloggers, eat nachos, and prettify our blogs. It’s called Bloggiesta.

I’m going to continue to update this post as I do things to make Semicolon more beautiful and useful to you throughout the weekend:

1. I applied with Chitika for advertising that supposedly only shows up when people come to the blog via a google search. Is this true? Anyone use this ad service and like it? Anyone not like it?

2. I’ve now written a review policy combined with a general information page. Will someone read it and tell me what you think?

3. With a little help from Bloggiesta partiers and from my Computer Guru Son, I fixed a whole bunch of links that were broken. Long story about how they got that way, but thanks to a “find and replace” wordpress plugin, I’m good to go.

4. I signed up with Google Analytics, but the information page says it may take 24 hours to start getting statistics. We’ll see how that goes. I may not really need another place to look at statistics other than Sitemeter.

  1. I signed up for Chitika and the first month I did really well. Then they made some changes on their site and I haven’t made a thing. Hopefully, they’ll get things back to how they were before.

  2. Just went into my WP admin and found some link checkers … thank you for that. I had *assumed* I had them. All of you who are bloggiesta-ing help me and I truly appreciate that. There are some robust stats plug-ins for WP that I love: analytics 360 and LiJit.

  3. Sounds like you are doing some great things this bloggiesta! Hope you are enjoying it!

  4. I use Chitika and consistently make about $30 a month. It’s not TONS but hey I’ll take it. I earned enough to pay enough for my NYC plane ticket to BEA. And your review policy is awesome! Thanks Sherry for participating in Bloggiesta!
