What a weird year. I’m loving the slower days, fewer commitments and time nesting at home. It’s given me ample moments to pause and reflect. You know I love a good journaling session or relaxing meditation to process the world around me. Well, 2020 has basically been that — daily!
This past summer I celebrated 11 years of full-time self-employment. My little writing business has grown in leaps and bounds over the years as I craft content for marketing clients and my two websites each month.
Time for an Audit and Updates
I’ve written thousands — ohh, maybe millions? — of words and it’s not surprising some of the information has become outdated, irrelevant or simply doesn’t fit my online focus or lifestyle any longer. So, I’ve decided to spend 2021 spring cleaning the Cupcakes and Yoga Pants and Web Writing Advice websites.
Between the two sites, that’s 594 blog posts to review, then update or remove. I’ll also be polishing the landing pages! It’s a hefty task, but we all know how good it feels to tidy a messy closet or empty an overstuffed garage.
SEO, Formatting and Links, Oh My!
For those who also blog and understand the techy side, I’ll be updating the SEO, post formatting, affiliate links, imagery and meta descriptions to make the posts perform better overall. (I’ll be talking more about this on the Web Writing Advice Facebook Page and blog.)
It’s what my websites need to level up in 2021.
So, moving into the year ahead, you won’t see brand new posts on the Cupcakes and Yoga Pants blog, but rather updates about refreshed posts from the past, why I polished them and what I’ve learned since writing the posts. I’ll still send out my monthly email to subscribers and post updates on the Cupcakes and Yoga Pants Facebook page.
My red pen awaits… It’s time to reflect and refresh!
Until next time,
