Bloggiesta update #1 - Blog Graded!

Well, I think I've gotten off to a decent start. Decided to begin my adventure with a mini-challenge from the last Bloggiesta: Grade Your Blog hosted by Bookish Ruth. Thought I would grade my blog at both the beginning and the end of Bloggiesta, then compare the scores. Hopefully, my grade will improve!

Well, I just ran my blog through the grader and received a score of 90! I was surprised, as I didn't think it would be such a high grade! It suggested I add both a meta description and meta keywords, and that I had too many images. I'm going to look into this meta business, but not going to reduce my images as I like my pictures. Had a few other suggestions I'm going to explore as well. Think I can bring my score up to a 95 by the end of the weekend?

Have spent the last few minutes bloghopping around the Bloggiesta and find my list of goals growing! Everyone has such good ideas that I want to try on my blog as well! Will include updated goals on my next update, but am now imspired so want to work on a few things...


  1. It ALWAYS says too many images so don't worry about that one. A 90 is good!

  2. Congrats! Mine was 71.. I have no idea why. I don't get these things.

  3. Great score and thanks for reminding me to run mine again. I was pleasantly surprised that I went from 67 at my first bloggiesta to 95 this time around. Woo hoo!

  4. I remember that my grade wasn't so great (I tried it at the last bloggiesta, though I didn't officially join), but I haven't got a chance to improve it. Perhaps this time round.

  5. Alexia -
    Good job, I have been neglecting my google reader so much lately.

    Congrats on your 100 followers!
