Normally when somebody asks me to write a post, I pick the subject matter. Most of the time this is exactly what I would prefer. I find it hard to write about subjects people give me. However, there is always the exception.
One such exception occurred relatively when the guys over at Web Design Tuts+ asked me to write a post about what to do when your new website turns out to be a disaster.
This is not a scenario I had really considered. My focus has always been on ensuring that the website being produced doesn’t turn out to be a disaster. That is what most of my posts are about, not to mention my most recent book “Client Centric Web Design“. I hadn’t really considered how I would fix a website if things had gone terribly wrong.
My conclusion was a simple one: few websites that are a complete disaster and most can be salvaged. The trick is not to panic, because if you do, you are likely to throw away good work with the bad.
If you are worried about the state of your website and don’t know what to do (without spending even more money on it) then check out my post over at Web Design Tuts+
