What would you do if you could start your blog all over again?? I’m happy with a lot of things I did do, like having my own domain and using WordPress. I would have liked to have been a little more familiar with php and the wordpress templates, it took me longer than I would have liked to get a sidebar up and working, for example. I would have put a sitemeter on from the beginning as well, just to see how far I had come traffic-wise.
The main thing that I would do differently now is to change my permalink structure – making it include the post name rather than the numerical id – for better search engine optimization. This is near impossible to do now, as all the old links would have to be redirected. I think in the grand scheme of mistakes, that’s a small thing though.
So, join the group writing project, share what you would change, it’s a help to those just starting out as well as a great way to meet new people in this project!
