Internet Spring Cleaning

Post image for Internet Spring Cleaning

It seems that even though summer is almost upon us, I am still doing some spring cleaning. Not the kind of spring cleaning where you clean out your closets and get rid of those socks with the holes in them. I am talking about Internet spring cleaning. What is that you say? I am glad you asked.

What I am talking about is making sure that all your ‘stuff’ on the Internet is current and fresh. For example, do you have any accounts on websites out there that you no longer need? Then close them and get rid of them. How long has it been since you checked on the information that you have listed with your website hosting company? Is the address, phone number, name, email address and credit card information all correct? if you are like me, you might be surprised to find out that those things need to be updated.

What about your website? Do you have old pages or files up there that you no longer need? Get rid of them. Do you have photos on your website that were put there 3 years ago when you created it? Yep, it’s time to change them out. Do you have old email folders and emails on your computer that you no longer need? Get rid of them. Do you have old pictures on your social media pages, like in Facebook, Twitter, and Google+? Well, there’s no better time than the present to change them. Take fresh new pictures and update your social media accounts. I bet you’ll get some great comments from your fans about it!

I don’t know what it is about cleaning out that makes you feel good, but it just does. Maybe it is the rush that you get when you realize that you can now go out and buy a whole bunch more crap to fill the empty closet with! Or maybe it is just that fresh feeling you get with starting over with a clean slate. Whatever it is, you’ll get the same feeling when you start cleaning up your digital life as well. So grab that delete key and start cleaning my friends! You’ll feel better, I promise.
