A new year, a new beginning…….
I am a girl of rituals, and I have this habit of attaching things to do to certain dates on the calendar of to the change of seasons. The beginning of a new year marks the time to get some online and blog business in order. This is what I’ll be working on this week, so that I can start fresh, safe and organized in the new year.
Will you join me….
1. Change Passwords
I wrote a post about this last year, and I can’t stress enough how important this is. We are all online so much and in so many different places. And all of those places want you to make an account and set a username and password. I am the first to acknowledge how easy it is to use the same password over and over and for years on end. But that is putting yourself at risk. Take a moment to read my post on why your password might not be safe and on how to set safe passwords that you can actually remember. And then take fifteen minutes to change your passwords. Start with the most important ones that all need their individual password (your email account, your bank accounts, your blog administration and your hosting site) and then set a few new ones that you are consistently going to use on all the other sites. Just do it!
2. Add profile pic to Gravatar
When you comment on my blog (or any other Wordpress blog) does your profile picture show up? No? Then hop on over to Gravatar and add a profile image to the email address you use to comment and poof your beautiful face will be smiling back at me when you comment. If you have no idea what I am talking about go here for my post on how to add your profile image to your comment on a Wordpress Blog.
