I’ve subscribed to this year’s Blog Improvement Project (BIP) since it seemed a nice way to do some regular housekeeping on Graasland. It could be argued that maintenance isn’t really improvement, but I think it is :) And maybe you do too, after you’ve looked at my to do list(s). Tasks are in no specific order.


  • clean up 11 remaining uncategorized (imported) posts
  • check and replace old images (location)
  • clean up tags

Add / Change

  • index page(s) for book and film reviews
  • import (Dutch) book reviews from old museum website
  • add ‘Books read in…’ posts for 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004
  • maintenance / werk in uitvoeringtranslate or summarize Dutch book and film reviews in English
  • check glossary and update if necessary
  • finish draft posts ;)


  • make cheat sheet with special characters like ō
  • put together index page cheat sheet

Stuff to think about

  • when to add which tags?
  • claim domain and migrate?
  • or change to more flexible wordpress theme?
  • Gnoe's cat iconpersonalize header pic (if possible)?
  • declutter sidebar?
  • change categories into clearer topics?
  • change gravitar & favicon?
  • add Dutch summary to rss-feed for each post from now on?
  • find blogging buddy?

Oh, and I still want to check out The Bloggie Cult mentoring program and forum! Although that might lead to a longer list of things to do ;)
