Tidying up for the Book Blogger Organization Challenge
It’s a new month which means it’s a new theme for the Book Blogger Organization Challenge! Huzzah!
January’s focus was on scheduling, planning, and making goals. Check out my post for more about that!
February’s focus is on blog maintenance. I actually tend to straighten things up around her regularly (it’s harder to STOP fiddling, tbh), but there are a few things I’d like to work on this month:
- update at least 10 old reviews. I still have quite a few reviews that haven’t been formatted to use my beloved Ultimate Book Blogger plugin (affiliate link), which means they aren’t in my review archives and are thus harder to find. Also, quite a few of them have broken links and images, which is fugly.
- speaking of: check for broken links and images! I am pretty sure I have a plugin somewhere around here which will do it in a snap. Just gotta remember which one it is…
- update anything that says “Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog” (my old blog name). Mostly just to keep things consistent!
- jazz up my header? I always want to jazz up my header, and then I end up regretting it. Right now I don’t even HAVE a header, just fancy font. What do you think: do I need a header? Yes? No? Eh.
Do you need to tidy up your blog? My recommendation is to go through your front page and click EVERY link. Every button, every social media thing, every menu item. Make sure it works the way you think it’s working– you might be surprised at how often things go awry!
Good luck with your goals. I’m working on this challenge as well as Book Bumblings blogger challenge. I like the clean line of no header but its so hard to resist adding one
I think my blog loads way faster without a header, too, but I LOVE the fancy illustrations some other bloggers have. It’s a struggle.
I have one for you. Is your comment section suppose to have a box to click to receive follow up comments? If so, on the mobile version its not showing up.
That is a good question! I’m not entirely sure. It USED to have a box like that, but now I don’t see one. I’ll have to look into that!

I think it looks nice without a header! But I have also liked every header you’ve had, so perhaps do not go by my opinion, as it is apt to prove wishy-washy.
I usually like all my headers, too, for about a week. Then I want to change them…
