Following up on one of the Bloggiesta mini-challenges: My blog grade per Website Grader is up above 90% this week (average 92%), from 87% last week. The uptick seems to be mainly due to two changes - I added metadata for keywords and description (once I figured out what the heck it is and how to do it - this article was helpful, as was this meta tag generator), and I renewed my domain registration. In related news, my Twitter grade is 97%, which is way better than when I last checked on it!
