If you've been loving up your blog but still have a static Website that you've been neglecting if not ignoring completely, here are a few simple ways you can "2.0-fy" your site with a very minor investment in time (updates took me about 45 minutes).
1. Get something up on your homepage that drives traffic to your blog
These days even if a well-designed self promotional site serves it's purpose—it doesn't offer the same degree of conversation and "life" that your blog may be exhibiting. A simple update on your homepage can take only minutes.
2. Update what you've been up to
If you already have a space on your site created for latest news, go ahead and update it. Make sure that the content is relevant to how you've been evolving what you do.
3. Breath life into your static 1.0 site with a widget
Setting up a widget on your site that pulls live content from your blogs takes nothing more than a few short steps and some copy and pasting. It's a no-brainer.
Of course you can totally overhaul your site, refresh stylesheets and integrate in many effective ways—but the purpose of this post is to explore what can be done in a very short amount of time with minimum effort. I was dreading updating my site and haven't touched it in over a year and I don't have the time to re-think what I want to do with it. Making these simple changes better align my site with the blog and I didn't even break a sweat.
