Website Makeover: Step One

1. Get “Before” Pictures and Write a List

My website has been so neglected this year.

Between work and school, I haven’t had much time for blogging.

Now that I am finished with school, I am turning over a new leaf!

I think it’s time this website did as well. . .

The List:

  • Choose a new layout to work with.
  • Build in better navigation (like a menu bar and I am going to use breadcrumb navigation).
  • Completely redo the homepage content.
  • Import my unposted content. There are lots of articles I have written that I haven’t had a good place to post because I have been planning to redo my personal site for awhile.
  • Fix the SEO!<- There are so many fixes to this I will share with you!
  • Share tips with you to help you build better blog sites.

I created this screenshot of my full web pages, with the basic version (free) of a very easy to use Firefox Plugin called:  Pearl Crescent Page Saver.

It sure beats taking windows screen shots. Dealing with the pressing “crtl, Fn, and prt sc” and cropping and pasting gets tedious and messy!!
