I'll be totally honest with you. It wasn't easy. But I think the struggle is going to be worth it in the end.

As expected, the latest version of WordPress just launched.
There's some pretty cool things in this version but before you update I have a few wise words.

Waiting till it starts making that beeping sound may be fine for a smoke detector, but not so fine for your website. Here's a few things you should do right now, because when it comes to your website - when you hear a beep, it's too late.
There's no such thing as set it and forget it. Everything requires periodic maintenance. Everything. Smoke detectors, your car, your body and yes, even all those things in your digital life. Not now, but when you have a free block of time, take a moment and perform a little digital housekeeping on your website, your social media profiles and even the cloud.

It took me a little over a week to create this 12 page report. I wanted to capture every single detail so that you could setup your own lead capture system on your site. Every single detail. (really) 
Offering up a free pdf is one thing, using it as lead capture is another. Here's how to give your readers something of value in return for their email address.

I'm revamping the website from top to bottom. I'm sure to break some things along the way. But here's why I'm NOT going to take it offline while I'm in the process.
While I'm working on a new design for the website I decided NOT to put the site behind an Under Construction banner - here's why! I hope that makes sense.

Why not just redo the site and re-launch it all in one shot?
