It’s a Wrap! #28DBC Days 16-27

Last week concluded the 28-Day Blog Challenge hosted by Katy Widrick. It was a busy month for my blog:

If you don’t know from participating, this challenge was completely free, and I learned so much. Thank you to Katy and everyone who joined in to share knowledge, advice and feedback. I will definitely participate in another blog challenge – which I hope to see (hint, hint)! 🙂 If you weren’t a part of this #28DBC, make sure you get in on the next one.

On the first day, I set some goals for my blog during this challenge and got many of them accomplished:

  • Add an ‘About Me’ box to my sidebar Finally!
  • Update my header Love my new header!
  • Organize my Google Reader (or alternative)
  • Comment more regularly on blogs I follow (and discover some new blogs) I discovered several new blogs thanks to this challenge.
  • Fix the comment link on my blog to make it easier to find It’s now at the bottom.
  • Make it easier to pin images from my site to Pinterest

Plus, some exciting additional changes:

  • I updated my Remember page
  • Had my blog header re-designed by Rita at Blog Genie (love her!) and also changed the columns on my blog
  • Published my blog to Kindle
  • Updated my Facebook Page and cover photo
  • Started replying to every comment left on my blog
  • Transferred my domain name and email to DreamHost (love them!) so all of my blog services are now in one place


  • I am staying up to date with blogs I follow by commenting on a more regular basis

My favorite change? My new header!

I am still struggling with my Google Reader (I don’t really like it and I think it is overwhelming to manage). What do you use?

I am still looking for a Pin-It Plug-In that allows readers to easily pin images to Pinterest. The ones I tried seem to not work on my blog. Have you found one you like and wouldn’t mind sharing?

Did you participate in the #28DBC? What did you learn?

Until the next mile marker,


  1. The new header looks great!
