2009 Blog Improvement Project: My first attempt

I joined the 2009 Blog Improvement Project a few weeks ago but haven't done anything about it yet. About every two weeks Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness challenges the participants to a specific task that should improve their blogs. This time the challenge it try to post as many different kinds of posts as you can over the next two weeks, such as lists, opinion posts, reviews, polls, etc. There's a good list here on the blog but for my benefit I will copy it here too.

Blog Post Bingo!
Take a look at the 10 types of blog post below. Over the
next two weeks, try to write as many of these different kinds of posts as you
A Link Post - share a series of links your readers might find interesting
A Short Post - less than 200 words
A List Post - simple as it sounds, a list of some sort
An Opinion Post - take an event, news, or another blog post and share your opinion on it
A Poll or Question Post - post a poll or ask your readers a specific question for feedback
A How-To Post - You’re an expert in something; big or small, share how to do it
A Long Post - more than 700 words
A Review Post - self-explanatory, I think
A Definition Post - show your expertise about a topic related to your blog
FREE SPACE - a type of post of your choice (that is not the same as one of the previous posts)

This should be fun. I know my posts are usually very similar so this will be good for me.
