Loose Ends and Blank Pages

One of the things I hate doing is republishing pages. I have to do it constantly and once I publish them, I have to go in and manually change a lot of stuff. Publishing a page for me is never a quick FTP; even the pages that require few, minor changes take about 10 minutes or so to complete.

This is why I haven't gone ahead with more content. I have a whole lot of stuff ready to go. The problem is, they have links to stuff that is nowhere near ready to publish. While I could go ahead and just let them point to nothing, it doesn't look good and the engines penalize you for it. As much as I really want this to be a site where the information is there and it is what it is (without worrying about SEO, engines, traffic, etc.), the truth is that I need to be able to recoup my expenses, so these things are a priority.

It's hard working backward, as it were. I mean, you really have to do the keystone pages first, but since they lead to the rest of the departments and so forth, you have to have them done before you publish the cornerstones... catch-22. Still, once you do it a few times, you get the hang of it and then you get your rhythm going and all that.

Not to mention that the last few weeks have been a real mess due to doctors appointments.

But I am working on Dark Conspiracy right this second and plan to have at least some of it up by December.
