Charles Lau dot Com website has been with me for a very long time. Other than making surface changes, the backend had some really old codes which have been lingering for a very long time.
I decided to do a total revamp of my blog. Starting from scratch, I start to re-think the things that I need this site to become.
First of all, I installed secure certificate on my website. That’s mainly because Google is giving more search result priorities with secure websites. On the other hand, I also think that it should become a norm to have this because it helps to identify that you are communicating with the domain name specified in the security certificate.
Secondly, it must be mobile friendly. In fact, it was mobile friendly previously.
Thirdly, I wish to remove some of the old posts that I have done previously. I have written over 1000 posts since 2007, some of which I would want to delete if I have been given a second chance. Instead of doing housekeeping (which I tried before as well), I may as well do it from scratch again.
Fourthly, things have changed for the better. I would not want my old posts to be there which are no longer valid in the ever changing digital marketing industry.
Now, let me move on to build a better Charles Lau dot Com again from scratch. I will also build up my blog categories from scratch as I blog along. Rest assured that it is still about my favourite topic on digital marketing.
