OOOPS!

So a few weeks back, I made some pretty hefty behind the scenes changes to my website and lo and behold people are actually viewing my site!

yes, I got a few complaints that old links didn't work. I then checked Google and there were 307 pages that were now a 404 (Page Not Found).

Now, being a web person, I'm usually the first one to think of that. When I worked at Constant Contact, we had more than 200 or so redirects that I had kept track of over the course of 6 years. But this time, it was my own personal site and I was lazy. I really didn't think it would be that big of a deal. Well, I've now fixed the majority of the bad links (with a custom .htaccess file on the root directory). If you notice a bad link, please let me know.

Anyhow, the lesson to this story is that if you make changes to your website (big or small), make sure you redirect your old pages or put up a custom 404 page.
