Take a look at your site – Are you ready for change?

The thing I like most about fall is how everything changes. The leaves, the sunsets, the days, the activities and the people.

Obviously the things you can’t see are the ones that give way to the change of people. What does that mean exactly? When you think of fall, other than the colors, can’t you feel the cool crisp air, smell the fires burning in the fireplaces, think of snuggling under warm covers? These things all change people; even if it’s just seasonal. Somehow it makes us more loveable, trustworthy and even sociable. You want to get outside and have barbeques, have sack races, go camping and sit around toasting marshmallows and making smores!

Do you also know that people “feel” things when they visit your site? Colors, typography, pictures and even placement of things can dictate immediately, and subconsciously, how a person feels about your company. Crazy isn’t it? Let’s take a look at the top 10 sites, dig into the top five, and you’ll see what I mean.

The Good News & The Bad News

I never like to report bad news, but it’s inevitable some times. However, with a little bad news, good news will soon follow.

The bad news: One of our external hard drives stopped working yesterday. It has seen better days.

The good news: We are constantly backing up everything to an off site area thanks to Back Blaze. I can quickly and easily login and retrieve any lost data.

The bad news: It may take a few days to recover the data (since there is a boatload on there).

Bottom line: ALWAYS have another backup source. NEVER put all your “eggs” in one basket (I’m SO glad I didn’t)

Also today, please remember to keep the lives lost & those saved in the September 11th attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93 in your thoughts and prayers today.
