If you are one of those people, like me, who tend to put their head in the sand each time change in work or social life comes knocking at the door then this short book should be just what you need. Especially if you are facing changes at work due to cut backs and general recession.
Three quick questions to start you off on:
- How often do you check your website hosting account / server to make sure its ticking over correctly?
- How often do you check the bandwidth used by your site?
- Do any notification emails go to someone who understands them?
Unless you happen to have your own server hosted in a data centre and are hopping on and off it most days like some poor sys admins do, the likely answers are: Not very often, Not very often, No idea.
To get you started on the 2012 resolutions I have put together a quick weekly check list for "Be Found", "Be Friendly" and "Be Current". Available in PDF format for easy printing.
Don't worry, they aren't time consuming. However there are a few one-off tasks which may take longer to do but no pain no gain!
