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

    Did You Know?

    Wayne County was formed in 1811. It was named for General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, who was an officer during the Revolutionary War. Wayne is mainly remembered for his service in the 1790's in the Northwest Indian War, which included many actions in Indiana and Ohio.
