Do you find yourself going “man, I really should…” about your web presence?
Are your links a mess?
Was your “about” last updated in 1999?
Do you have a page which references “current” serials you can’t even remember when you finished?
Do you want to move things to a new site, clean up old sites, or rearrange things so people can find something in particular?
Do you want to get into or back into a regular posting habit?
Welcome to the home site housekeeping challenge!
Pick a number of tasks you wish to commit to doing per week (1, 3, 7, 11, ??)
Post weekly here for accountability, and on the hashtag #HomeSiteHousekeeping wherever else you post
List all the tasks you want to do
Break them into manageable tasks.
A cleaner, fuller, happier home site!
Also, I will make badges.
Also-also, I encourage people to give feedback on changes and visit other challengers sites!
I would love it if others would help me come up with occasional daily or weekly mini-challenges. Daily should be small, able to be done in 10-15 minutes at the most. Weekly can take up to an hour and a half total, I’d say.
Daily: What’s the part of your site you have changed the least recently? Do you still need it? If not, time to archive it!
Weekly: Is there a graphic on your site that you look at every day? Should it be updated? (Is there a place you just NEED a graphic you don’t have?) Time to update it!
Who Can Join?
Everyone! Anyone! You!
Tell your friends! Tell your foes! Tell your mom! (Don’t tell my mom…)
It’s August first, friends! Let’s clean our sites!
