Thanks ken. Scars i have. You know when you spend all your time drinking you just do not develop the social skills that every one else takes for granted. that is the biggest source of hurts in my new life.

But it is all a learning experience. And you know something, it is a bit exciting. Sort of like being a kid again in some respects.

Take for instance my amazing hitchhiking trip across the USA at 51 years of age. Now I appear to be in great physical health. Truth is I do feel very well all things considered, BUT, at two years sober and age 45 I had a massive heart attack that has left me with 7 stents in my heart.

It was a source of depression till I took it to task and turned it into a source of life. Now I live footloose and fancy free. Presently trying to get my ducks in a row to get back out by the road side. Would like to travel the world round like I did the USA. And I did it without a penny to my name.

It turned out to be the best time I have ever had. Good people and a good way to learn about this Higher Power that takes care of you. Wish every one could experience that.

Post is getting a bit long so I will stop now. I am beginning to write some of that stuff down in a blog at: http://twentyfirstcenturybeing.blogspot.com/

I do not advertise because I ain't selling anything, but if you want to read about it please do. Thanks. Love your writing. It inspires me.

+Mark Robertson Thanks for sharing. I hope they get something out of it. I feel that we haven't been connecting like we have in the past. Seems that you're spending more time on google+ while I'm still doing they twitter thing.

Audit Your Website!

If you have a website or blog of any kind (or even just a social media profile), it's helpful to take a close look at everything from the perspective of a new user. I did this recently and came up with a long list of things I need to improve upon.

When auditing yourself, it's helpful to ask a number of questions. Feel free to use any of these or make your own, but most importantly, take action on the things you need to fix.

***

What is the purpose of your website?

What's going well?

What is not going well?

Is the About page clear?

Do you have at least one photo of you on your About page?

Do you have at least one good option for visitors to contact you?

Do you link to all your active social media profiles? (If you've stopped contributing somewhere, that's fine, but don't link to it.)

What do you want visitors to do?

Are all aspects of the site consistent?

Does your RSS and email signup (and any other signup) work as it should?

Is there a clear call-to-action that reflects your desired intention?

Can users search the site to find something specific?

Are there any old or outdated links?

Have you credited any public domain or Creative Commons images?

(Note: people often ask where my post images come from. Most of the time, they come straight from Flickr. Use "Advanced Search" and choose "Creative Commons" at the bottom. Then click "View All Sizes." If using the image, be sure to provide a credit with a link to the artist.)

Are you satisfied with the level of engagement on your website?

Have you created links to flagship content? (This refers to long-lasting posts or articles that are especially helpful or interesting to visitors. Hat tip to +Chris Garrett.)

If asking for donations, is it clear how people can give and what the money will go toward?

If you have sponsors, have you clearly disclosed your relationship with them?

Are you improving over time?

One year from now, what will your website look like?

If something comes to mind, add your own auditing questions in the comments. Unlike other audits, this one can be fun.
