If you’ve been following me lately, you know that I recently started a new position with the American Sportfishing Association as Web Manager for KeepAmericaFishing™.
These past three weeks have been amazing and incredibly challenging in many ways. First, I have never used Salsa Labs or ExpressionEngine in a professional capacity before. My learning curve is extremely high at the moment and it is tested daily. However, these tests have yielded some deeply rewarding feelings of accomplishment and confidence in my abilities.
Since assuming the role as Web Manager I have already accomplished, “a great deal and have already improved the site” in many ways, according to my immediate manager who is the VP of Government Relations. Everything from incorporating ways to share pages on social networks by incorporating AddThis code into Web site templates, incorporating SEO Lite to dynamically pull and change meta data on each page for search engine optimization (SEO) and I also reconfigured the RSS feed from a site generated feed to one run through Feedburner to better syndicate the RSS feed and to establish tracking metrics on feed subscribers and uses, each were a testament to the utility of the skills I have learned thus far in Web design.
All-in-all it has been a great couple of weeks so far.
