Easy Ways to Mess Up a Website

I came across a webpage the other day that really struck a note. Robert Fabian wrote an article on how a website owner can really mess up their website. I've extracted the main points and added my own commentary.


We're Coming for Christmas

We're coming to Leavenworth over Christmas! If you would like us to drop in to talk or contact you over Christmas, email us or call us. Our contact information is at the bottom of the page.

Find us on Facebook and Twitter

Become our friend on Facebook. It's a great place to connect with people who live in Leavenworth and those who live elsewhere but want to stay connected with the village. Find us on Facebook here.

Our Twitter feed is Leavenworthy. Twitter allows you to follow people or send out short text messages (140 characters or less) about what's happening in Leavenworth Some tweet specials for their business or they might share a snapshot of what's going on right now in the village.

You can check out our Leavenworthiest Twitter list for links to Leavenworth-area Twitter accounts. If you know of others we'd like to hear about them.

Please Update Your Information

We maintain links from our website to every business or organization in Leavenworth we've been able to find. Believe it or not, we are closing in on 1000 in Leavenworth and the surrounding area. We want to make sure the information we have for you is as complete as possible and provides value for potential and returning tourists who come to our site and for you as well. For that we need your help.

Please come to Accidental Bavarian and check your information, and our link to your site. If we have any incorrect information, or if you feel we have categorized your business incorrectly, please go to our "Are You a Local Business?" link at the bottom of each page and send us an EMail. Your business can be listed under more than one category. For example, if your Bed and Breakfast also hosts weddings then let us know that.

We also have a new Pet-Friendly Leavenworth page. If you have a pet-friendly business, and don't find your business listed, then give us a shout and let us know. We'd be delighted to add you.

And if you have suggestions for future additions to the website, please let us know that as well.

We also provide website development via Front Street Webs. Please contact us if you need to update your website or if you want us to create a new website for you.

Pass It On

While we've now identified nearly 1000 businesses in our database, we've only found Email addresses for about half of them. Please pass this Email on to anyone you know who has not received it and encourage them to Email us with updated information about their business.

So Fritzi and Mitzi, the Accidental Bavarians, say "Herzlich Willkommen, Leavenworth!"
