Grade Your Blog at Blog Grader

I just went to a site that measures how effective your blog is and found out the following:
  • I should post more frequently. 
  • I should add a Twitter "re-tweet" button 
  • I should add a Facebook "Like" button to my blog.  
  • I should increase the length of my posts
  • I should dumb my posts down a bit. 
  • I should set up a Twitter subscription button here.  
Guess what else I ought to do?  This is totally my idea.  I ought to make more art.   That's why this site even exists.  It seems to me that you can spend so much time optimizing your blog or website that you don't have time to make art.

    I know...I know facebook will do sooo much for me. I really think I too should just do more art! I don't want to be on facebook and I don't want to tweet...I want to create!
    Thoughtful post Dixie.

    who can waste all that precious creating, baking,cooking,having-fun-time worrying about and/or "doing" all that extra sitting in front of a computer?

    It's just not that important.... life is.... carry on creating, say I....

    I will not be visiting a grading site or embracing Twitter any time in the near future. I do what I can, and that's that. I WOULD like to add one of those Facebook button thingies though! How do I do that??

    Jo - I'll see if I can do a mini-tutorial on that. It wasn't hard, but I can't remember where I found the information. :-)
