|Well, here's a new page
I guess it's the result of more demand from our visitors for more up-to-date content. Let's face it, people want to use the internet to find more than some pretty pictures and a stale old story about a quaint little town.
For a web site to be meaningful these days - meaningful and truly helpful to its visitors, it must continually add relevant content and grow with the needs of the audience.
John's approach was to sign up for a blog. But I'm not really a blogger - not yet, at least. I never felt the need to use a blog; I'm the webmaster - and the host of the website. The tools I use these days allow me to update the website with edits, changes and new pages about as easily as I create or edit a document in Microsoft Word.
Editing existing web pages certainly is no longer rocket science. It's quick and easy to do.
Updating the home page frequently has kept us at the top of the search engines for years, which is nice, and updating the home page is not great effort, in these days of convenient web page editing software.
But the problem was, what to do with the comments, reports and general content after it became dated?
I've always disliked deleting page content, so I wanted to find a way to keep the content online in a convenient archive.
Well here it is: "This Week" a new feature of Frenchtown.com I hope you enjoy it and I hope it makes our website more valuable to all of our visitors.
Alan Runfeldt, webmaster
