Web Development Meeting in Urbana

Posted by Ron Wolford -

I spent the day in Urbana at the University of Illinois meeting with Jane Scherer. Jane is Extension's Web guru. She is in charge of the development of all the content for the Extension Web site. I have been working with Jane for many years. When Extension started the Urban Programs Resource Network ,we were hoping for 100,000 hits in a year. Since the inception of the UPRN in1996 and since it was recently folded into the State Extension Web site, the site has received more than 32 million hits and has averaged over a million hits a month over the last six months.

Jane and her staff are working on a long list of web projects. I met with Jane to schedule due dates for updates for sites I have developed: Bulbs and More, Strawberries and More, Watch Your Garden Grow, Apples and More, Miracle of Fall, Pumpkins and More, Turkey for the Holidays, Poinsettia Pages,Winter Storm Resource Center and Christmas Trees and More. I love working on the development of the Web sites; I just need to find more time to work on them.
