I’ve posted Problogger’s 31 Day Challenge on a couple forums, but don’t think I’ve mentioned it on my blog. So for those of you who’d like to improve your blog, it isn’t too late to head on over and get started. Start at the beginning and work your way through.
My homework for Day 14 was to update a key page on your blog. I knew my about page needed updating, ’cause I put something like more information coming soon. Then I looked for my about page, contact page and realized that they were both hidden with my last theme update. I’d never added them back to my navigation links.
Updated and fixed. Even added a short little blurb on the sidebar for new visitors to get an idea about the website. At least readers could contact me on various social networks. I can think of several more tasks I can do to update my website. A work in progress, one step at a time.
Besides updating your website, every business should check and update their voice mail, printed material, etc. Imagine calling a company and the voice mail takes you to the box of an ex-employee. You assume they are still working there, leave a message, it never gets returned. You get frustrated and call a competing business and give them your business.
