There is so much more to blogging that writing posts.

If you are new to wordpress, you’ll soon learn that there are many backdoor things you need to perform regularly.

You need to update wordpress and plug-ins.  You have to update broken links in your sidebars.

When you have multiple blogs, like I do, this can take up a lot of time.

With this in mind, I’m designating Monday’s admin days.  I may include some curated posts or quote posts, as well.  I hate to leave the whole day for behind the scenes updates but today its overwhelming after coming back from such a long unplanned hiatus.

This blog, especially has some troubles that may take more than my brain power to fix.  Along with some hangups in other blogs that I’ve taken to twitter for help. I was just editing something, after searching for the place to edit, and I missed something. Y’know, I can’t remember where it is nor can I find it again.  Story of my life.

Anyway, I’m going back to Admin duties and I’ll see you in the other blogz tomorrow.  This blog will just update things that pertain to all the blogs.  I’m trying to figure out how to say that on the other blogs without sounding or being repetitive.  Maybe I’ll just curate this post.  Good idea Heidi. Haha


Checking back in from Margie’s 4 week Blogging Action Items Blog Admin Week.  It only took 12 days.  But, let’s be fair, here, if I’ve even completed week one, which I haven’t, we’ve made great improvement in five blogs.

Let’s start from the beginning.  The Five Blogs worked on were WoodenSpoonz, Field of Dreamz From the Cheap Seatz, Simply Carolina Dreamz, Peculiar Standardz, and Family Hugz.

1. A Carolina Dreamz Landing Page was Created. It not only highlights all of the personal freelance writing articles, but some of my favorite blogs from Simply Carolina Dreamz have been added too.

2. In this process, Wooden Spoonz received a much-needed face-life, updated name, new header, new design, plenty of beautiful yummy red, and new permalink structure.  This about broke From the Cheap Seatz just as it got brought back online, so we’ve had some time put into fixing those broken links, which are not complete at this time.

3. Simply Carolina Dreamz has better RSS Feeds and a new header. (Better RSS Feeds were added to all blogs as they could be.  There were quite some challenges with this.)

4. Tweetmeme was added to all posts and pages of relevance.

Week two should move a little faster, as we are experiencing great joy with College level Spring Break. 🙂

Blessingz and Believing,
