Site Update & Content Pruning (3)

We’re in the third week of the month and that means a little update on the site and content. I’ve really enjoyed putting my focus on my website again, it’s been a while. It allows me to think about different things and leave some of the stress and nonsense from 2015 behind me.

tl;dr The final part of my 2016 site updates and content pruning. I am so happy I’ve been posting daily again, while cleaning up old content and updating the website to the way I like having it. It was a fun January project.

When 2015 was ending I made myself a little promise to keep: to do three things with my website again. First, to blog for a week. Second, to double the amount of blog entries I made in 2015 in January 2016. And finally, to update my site; I had a big list of little things I wanted to change and for some reason that didn’t happen last year, so I set myself to do it in this year.

Before I went through the 2015 blog posts and deleted a couple, there were about 7 or 8. Therefor I wanted to make at least 16+ posts this month. And I am happy to say I’ve been publishing content each day since January 1st. And this third part site update closes the third thing I wanted to do, as I’ve finished almost all of the site’s todo items.
