It’s 2007: Is it for your website?

By Steve Outing

Every year, without fail, either in my Editor & Publisher Online column or in one or the other blogs I write or write for, I remind people on January 1 to check the copyright tagline at the bottom of their websites. So many people forget to change it to the current year.

Well, for the first year since I started doing this I not only forgot to remind everyone else on January 1, I also forgot to check this blog. So for the first three days of 2007 my blog was still in the past. In fact, it even said 2005, since a server changeover a couple months ago was troublesome; I not only lost a month’s worth of posts, but somehow the copyright footer reverted to 2005 and I didn’t notice.

So thanks to Monique VanDusseldorp for pointing out my aggregious error and oversight in not issuing my annual reminder! I’m now back in the present. Are you?…
