For the past couple days and over the next couple weeks I will slowly be pinpointing different areas of Dorm Room Biz that need to be updated and make small changes on the site to hopefully increase its reach. Here are a few of the things that I will be working on.
- New Header – the current header is a little plain, so I am going to be working on something a little more jazzy but also that brings across the point of Dorm Room Biz Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to provide young/student entrepreneurs with advice and ideas. Hopefully IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to put something together for it soon.
- Adding Tags to Old Posts Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Just recently with the upgrade of WordPress, I started using tags with the posts that I have written. I know the tags help when people are searching the site so I want to go back through old posts and add some tags to them, even if it is only 1 or 2, so that they can be found through the search. This will take some time, but I have already started working on it and completed about 30 old posts in just a short stint.
- Condensing the Sidebars Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I want to try to condense the sidebars some because they are so long. Now, I know that the page itself is long, so even if you are scrolling to read the content, you are still seeing what is in the sidebars, but I would like to still shorten them up some and possibly even add in some more advertising spots.
- Finding New Advertisers Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I am on the hunt for new advertisers! If you would be interested in taking a test run with Dorm Room Biz to see how your site performs while being advertised here, please get in touch with me. With the installation OIOpublisher, I hope to be able to manage advertisers in an easy format.
- Getting OIOpublisher Set Up Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I purchased the script a little bit back but have not really played with it much. I hope to just sit down one night and do as much as I can with it and get it working with Dorm Room Biz as well as my other site, TheGearHouse where it is currently installed. If anyone has had some experience using it, I would LOVE to hear from you!
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d love to hear suggestions related to what you think about Dorm Room Biz and what I may be able to do to make it a better user experience for you, so please reach out to me and let me know! Also, be on the lookout for some user polls coming soon!
