Check your Links–Check and Check Again

 

chris colour for home page lighterHaving just published a new blog on wrap dresses at www.glamoursleuth.com I went to check the links  and three had ‘fallen down’ (my rationale for their not working).

There’s no excuse for sloppy links any more than there is for typos and even though most of us are guilty of writing/blogging/publishing in a hurry we need to haul back.  Stop.  Take a deep breath and take the time to check every single link.  This is even harder when using a mobile device to blog but either way it’s an essential.

Inevitably we write and publish blogs faster and faster.  Who has the time to keep up with the social media caravan every single day when work/meetings/weekends are just set up to get in the way?

If you don’t check your links you’re guilty of looking careless at best, unprofessional at worst and it’ll happen on a day when someone you really want to impress happens by.  Whether you’re talking about affiliate links, text links or picture links on website, blog or anywhere else you need to check, check and check again.

Oh and by the way, if you spot that one of my links doesn’t work please let me know.  I’m just as guilty as anyone else.
