I’ll bet you thought this was a dead site, huh? No updates in two months…nothing new to feed your newsreader. Just another blog to add to the graveyard of abandoned blog sites, right?
We’ve been busy behind the scenes.
We have created some great new small business content which we will be posting shortly. Look for it — you’ll love it!
We upgraded this site to version 188.8.131.52 of WordPress. I’m becoming a big fan of WordPress for general blogging and content management software. This newest version makes it even more user-friendly.
We’ve made some improvements (we hope you agree!) to the design. The header image is more uplifting and the colors lightened up. The site seems less foreboding and a little easier on the eye. Lisa Sabin at Elegant Webscapes did a nice job. Let us know what you think.
We have added considerable bandwidth to the site. The content continues to be extremely popular, with regular repeat visitors and downloads for each recording. I have been listing the content in the new podcast directories that keep popping up, and listing it in my newsletter, which leads to regular ongoing demand. Unlike most podcast content, in the case of some of the recordings, listenership actually has increased with each new month.
Effective August 1st we have eliminated the streaming version of the content in favor of the MP3 files. We found that nearly 90% of visitors downloaded the MP3 files instead of streaming the content. You can still listen to the audio files directly from your computer, but you need to take a few moments to download them first.
We still have work to do. I have to change over each of the existing event pages manually to the new design and format, and I am only part way finished. So if you run into pages with the old design or that still have “streaming” links, for the next few days, please bear with us.
I hope you enjoy the changes and the new small business content coming soon!
