Did you know content marketing could be a poem?
Yup, it can.
Scroll down to read it or listen to me read it aloud here or below:
The Night Before Site Launch
‘Twas the night before launching, and all through the site;
The content was final, the colors were bright;
The pages were ready, the forms were online,
They'd finished the best web site of all time;
The marketing team rested snug in their beds,
While visions of new leads flowed through their heads;
The week had been long, I was all done with Zoom,
I was finishing work, there was no sense of doom;
When all of a sudden there were flashing alerts,
Texts and emails came in like something was hurt!
The phone rang so late I was barely awake,
The client needed this fixed, before it was too late;
I turned screens back on and got myself ready,
The alerts and alarms were coming in steady;
I opened some browsers and ran lots of tests,
Something old had updated, the site was a mess;
I sat with my mouse, right in front of my desk,
Making last minute fixes, to solve the unrest;
When what to my blurred, tired eyes did appear,
Some outdated plugins, and code from past years;
The monitor glow lit my face up that night,
While I clicked and fixed problems to make it all right;
As updates downloaded, and things got on track,
I saved extra copies and stretched out my back;
There’s sliders and popups and don’t forget Yoast,
which is one of the plugins that updates the most;
Old plugins and files and now WordPress core,
Which needed a new patch, to keep it secure;
Soon things started working and the site was in shape,
and just as the sun rose, I made my escape;
As I walked off to bed, I may have let out a yell,
‘Just keep your site current, and all will be well!’
