Issues & Projects for September - October

  • For health and safety reasons, I have continued doing most of my work from home, going into the City Building once every week or so to check mail and deposit checks via the Library.
  • We are out of letterhead, but since we haven't met to confirm the direction for the organization, I have been printing "letterhead" with my personal color laser printer.
  • Working with the Marketing Dept. at Reid Health to try and figure a way to import their events.
  • Continued work on updating rotating images on website pages.
  • Met with James Hensley of Coldwell Banker Lingle. Thanks, Richard for helping set up this meeting!
  • Did a current site backup to the computer at the office.
  • Reviewed a variety of reponsive design layouts/services/options. Nothing is "easy and perfect"!
  • Attended 1/2 of staff development day for MRL.
  • Project Hours

Photo Sessions:

  • Fall photos on 10/11
  • Rural Wayne County
  • Pumpkin Day
  • HolmanPhotos.com shared usage of some photos with WayNet.

Website Maintenance:

  • Found a solution (less than perfect, but workable) for including images on our sidebar. Using Flickr's "include" code on indiviual pages. Probably about 1/2 way through with the update. These images are indivualized for each page, so I often spend some time updating links while I have the page open, making it a fairly slow process.
  • Slowly reviewing pages for dead/broken links, URL's needing updating.
  • Technical issues:
    • Still searching for fix for "robots.txt" issue that Google is returning for our calendar section. Any help appreciated!

    My To-Do List:

    • Still need to work on transferring data from Access into a Google Spreadsheet so we don't lose the information.
    • Website Overhaul - review log analysis, research technical options and trending layouts
    • Ongoing: Schedule guests for County Connections.
    • Ongoing: Make calls on members/potential members
    • Ongoing: Continue to review & update web pages.
    • Prepare & Mail invoices and statements each month, Accounts Receivable
    • Ongoing - Review files for clean up using Screaming Frog SEO spider and Optimizr.com.
    • Set up Internship/Volunteer Program
