Tackle it Tuesday...Working on Building a Better Blog in 31 days.

Last week I started the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge. I signed up for the e-mails and have been following the blog. The premise is to do the tasks each day & improve the quality of your blog by the end of the 31 days. This is at least the 3rd year Pro Blogger has done this & looking at some of the previous years posts was also very informative.
I'm still working on pieces of some of the tasks leading up to today, but overall I feel like many of the things I have already been doing on a random basis. Now I need to start focusing on doing them on purpose because now I know they are GOOD things to be doing.
My tackle for today involved reading through each e-mail I have received and following up on the tasks that I hadn't completed yet. Since I signed up late, I have only gotten the first 5 e-mails, but the nice thing about this challenge is that you can start at any time during the month & they will send out the e-mails individually to you, rather than overwhelming you with all the info at once.
Today is day 9 on the blog & because the task is to join a forum for my type of blog, I'm going to skip ahead & do it. I'm excited to meet other people who are participating & see how they are using the challenge to improve their blogs.
Head over to 5 Minutes for Mom to see more Tackle it Tuesday!

I'm reading along with the better blog challenge, too! I, too, feel like I've been doing most things already, but it's great to have a focused list to think through.

Happy blog building! :)
