Thirty First Post - Evaluate

’10 Things Bloggers Should Not Do’: a Bloggiesta mini-challenge is being hosted by Hannah @ Word Lily 

Maw Books Blog

Better is Possible's (how true is that?) Self Evaluation:

1. You Must Not Expect Results Overnight: 4/5
This is rather hard to evaluate because I'm not sure what results I'm anticipating. I enjoy blogging and am thrilled when people leave comments.
2. You Must Not Ignore Your Readers: 3/5
 Oops, I thought my blog was about me. I will be more aware of my readers and their needs; or maybe it will still be mostly about me and my needs.....something worth pondering. Who am I blogging for?

3. You Must Not Scrape Another Blogger's Content: 5/5
None of this for me.
4. You Must Not Expect Success Without Promoting: 2.5/5
I'm pretty much at the side of the road, waiting for people to stop by. I'm getting ready to make a move.....I do post a link to Better is Possible on my Facebook account. (and then I feel like I'm bugging my friends - although no one is forcing them to go to the link.)
5. You Must Not Be Another Blogger: 4/5
 I have enough fun just being me. I have little desire to be someone else at this stage in my life. If anything I need to tone down the "real"
6. You Must Not Fail To Update Your Blog Regularly: 4/5
My goal has been to blog once a week and for the most part I've met that goal. Once I retire from my full time job, I'd like to blog a few more times a week. That is still a few years in the distance.
7. You Must Not Ignore SEO:  1/5
Honestly....I have never heard of SEO until this challenge. I shall be looking into this. Then I can decide if I'm lazy or not.
8. You Must Not Ignore Networking: 2/5
I'm working on this. I'm still primarily blogging for recreation and enjoyment so I'm networking slowly.
9. You Must Not Have An Unreadable/Unnavigable Site:4/5
I think my blog is efficient and simple to navigate. Perhaps that is because I don't have an abundance of "stuff" on it. At this point I'm quite pleased with its ease of use as well as its presentation.
10. You Must Not Throw Mud Around: 5/5
LOL! Heck if I've got mud to throw, it won't be on the Internet! That's why I have a telephone, friends, and my mother!

That completes another mini-challenge and as soon as I label this post I shall click on Publish.

How would your blog rate?


  1. soo funny hahahaha
    Well if I find something I really would like on my blog someone put I tell people where I got it from.No info today is original. Even one's life is the same as someone elses otherwise how are we to relate to each others experiences and agree. lol

  2. I love reading everybody's response to this mini-challenge! Thanks for participating in the Bloggiesta.
