New Site.

Last Update: October 29, 2013

Hi everyone,

I have started a new website http://Allaboutcrohnsdisease.com

This is a better domain name for what I want to do. Im not sure what to do about http://zoubt.com

Can I just clear all the pages and posts and start from scratch? I have an idea for a new site.

Or do I have to just sell the domain. I don't want to just leave it there abandoned lol.

Any ideas. Do I unregister it from google? I havn't a clue.

I'm much more comfy with the new site. Time to knuckle down again. Thanks guy's

That is a much better domain name, direct to the point, no zoubt. Recycling your old site, since you have an idea for it, seems to be the answer.

I admire the clean, fresh appearance of your site and the way you have used website tools - I can see that I have a long way to go with my site in getting 'just so'. I do have more comments about your site, but don't know if you are looking for that kind of feedback here (I agree with pcook410 re menu). If you are, please let me know. The main thing, because I used to do a lot of proofreading I immediately see spelling and grammatical errors - and there are quite a few on your first page. The good news - there are ways around it.

There are many positives on your site, you've put a lot of work in to it, done a great job (I wish I'd progressed as far). Accolades are great, but won't help improve your site.
Now I'll get picky ....
* Spelling is not everyone's strong point, but it is mine. I think it is important if you are writing on a plublic domain as it affects the 'professionalism' of your site.
May I suggest that you write your content in MSWord, or such like, where most spelling and grammatical errors will be caught, and then copy and paste on to your site. (I'm too new to know whether there is an editor on board WordPress that will do this.)

Many people use 'your' for the contraction of 'you are', which is incorrect - it should be 'you're' . The word 'your' is possessive - 'your site', 'your hat' - not 'your welcome to ...'. Unfortunately these types of errors are not caught by my editor - you just need to be aware of the context in which you use the word.
Also 'there' (over there) and 'their' (their site, hat) are often used in the wrong context.

* First reaction on opening the site was the desire to centre the heading, rather than have it off to the right (my sense of balance).

* I would prefer an opening, introductory, static, page, perhaps a welcome, a brief overview of what the site is about and how it relates to your journey with Crohns. This is my taste/my preference and not necessarily yours, of course. Your site opens with news about Alzheimer's Disease (although you say very little about it), Vit D, Cancer, Depression, etc. - rather confusing I thought.

I'll be airing my site soon and it will be your turn to get stuck into it ;o)

I like your new site, Judy. It is very professional looking. The information was clear and consise, too, which made it easier to read. My only suggestion is to reconsider your menu framework. It looks like your articles will each have pages of their own. This may get pretty crowded at the top. Perhaps putting all of your articles in a rolling blog on your start page and having them also grouped under your categories as submenu items would make it easier to understand. Just make sure you have categories to cover all the areas you might want to write about. Not too many, though. Think big categories.

Just a suggestion. You will need to organize it the way it makes the best sense to you.

Judy, you could redirect your old domain name to your new website. If you want to do that create a support ticket and they will sort it out for you. They were very helpful to me when I did the same thing. Cheers, Caden

Thank you Caden. Yes I have had to submit one or two support tickets and they were brilliant. Judy

I think there are a few options. You can sell it as is for the domain, build it up a bit then sell it for the site. Park it, which seems to involve putting up some google ads sort of things on it. Unsure the process but it might pay for its self if enough people are looking for it and click. No idea but seems better than just leaving it doing nothing. Or you could just let the registration lapse I guess. Probably have to check with the co. you registered with to check if they roll-over your payment or if you have to actively renew it.

Or you could hold on to it and come back to it at a later date. I think its fairly brandable and an interesting name.

Thank you josh. I have copied and pasted and then tweeked the articles that I wanted to keep. I'm wondering if I could delete the content and then maybe promote WA etc as I do like the name. Thanks again josh.
