Situation

Wordpress Blogathon
Hackathon for Cogzidel Blogathon

Cogzidel Blog for long has been deserted & by time it has accumulated loads of garbage with poor content, no category listing, no tags etc…

Twice a team was formed to clean things and set things right… Unfortunately both times folks couldn’t complete the task..

Being a Social Media freak & a Blogger I couldn’t take it anymore… Finally I decided to take the challenge to do it myself…

Solution

I decided to do a HACKATHON and code named it as Cogzidel Blogathon

As a first step I set my Goals;

  • First to Trash all unrelated content…
  • Add appropriate Categories and place blogs under right category…
  • Add appropriate tags…
  • Add a Nice Theme…
  • Customize the Blog…

Then for execution I split the task into 4 Phases of Hackathon… First three phase were SOLO Hackathons and the last one is a Team Hackathon

Phase I: Deleted all unnecessary / irrilavent Blogs…
Phase II: EDITING Content, adding Categories & Tags to existing Blogs…
Phase III: Integrating & Customization of Theme…
Phase IV: The last phase involves a Team of Designer, System Admin, Project Manager & CTO to complete the final set to GAPS…

First three phases took me 2 hours each & planning to do the final Team Hackathon this Monday…

Environment & Gadgets

  • My Vacation house in Bangalore
  • HP Laptop & a Reliance Data card
  • iPhone 4 with 3G

Final Outcome

  • Trashed 360 irrilavent blogs
  • Added categories & tags to 160 blogs
  • Edited content to 40 blogs

Personally the experience was thrilling as it is a Solo Hackathon and feeling happy with accomplishment…
