This site is HUGE. I’ve been posting at least once a day for ten years. There is a gigantic body of work here.
When I redid the site with a modern (mobile-friendly) theme, it destroyed a lot of the content. This is because we used to use the “excerpt” field.
You can see the old site there. This used to be ElsaElsa-The Advice Blog. People would send questions…which I answered.
When we changed themes, the questions, which were placed in the excerpt field, disappeared. This made all that content, worthless.
After awhile, google noticed. Long story short, I am now going through those posts and fixing each one, manually. It’s tedious but interesting.
It’s tedious, because I have to cut and paste the excerpt, delete links which no longer work and, most importantly, fix the images.
A lot of the images on the early posts were uploaded to my xanga blog, and get this: they are huge! So I’m cropping and optimizing and re-uploading and “featuring”.
These things are necessary for the site to function well on a mobile device. Once I have a post fixed, I submit it to be indexed by google.
It’s a horrible job, but I’m committed to it and I’m nearly done. Google only allows you to submit 500 urls in a month…and I am about to hit their limit.
This represents my commitment (Saturn) to the future (Sagittarius). When you get a chance, check out the Advice category. Back from the dead, baybee!
