Do you know what year it is tomorrow? (Hint: check your copyright footer)

By Steve Outing

I’ve lost track of how many years I’ve blogged this, but it’s still good advice…

Remember to check your website or blog’s footer and change it to ©2009 tomorrow.

Sure, some systems are set to do this automatically, but MANY aren’t. I’m no longer shocked to see some website in June have the previous year’s copyright date published. (Actually, I occasionally spot some that haven’t been updated in years. It always makes me skeptical of a site’s content and quality when the bottom of the page says “©2005”.)

You’ve been reminded. I hope you have a great 2009. We have nowhere to go but up. Right?!
