Bill Rasool's Adventures At The Veterans Administration

Welcome To Fayetteville, North Carolina

Cottage 71

Living in Cottage 71 has been an adventure, to say the least. The staff is great but sometimes very sensitive to suggestions. It doesn't bother me anymore, but it used to! Now, I concentrate on just getting my point across. Keeping the peace with the people caring for you is very important. The only thing that has been really bothering me is the Bleep Bleep food. "IT SUCKS BIG ONES" I have to give them some props because they have been really trying to do better... 

Since I've been here, we've lost two Veterans for various reasons. It's always sad to see them rolled out on a gurney., 

Listing Site Updates

Under one of these subheadings, it's a good idea to list recent updates to my site so that visitors, especially return visitors, can check out the new stuff first. For example, I could list the date and a brief description of the update.

I could also list updated news about my site's topic. For example, if my site were about a particular sport, I could discuss the outcome of a recent competition.

Vietnam War Green Line Lookout Tower

Another idea for my home page's text is notifying visitors about the enhancements I put on my site. For example, I want visitors to sign my guestbook or fill out my survey Form E-mailer to answer questions about my site, my business, or my site's topic.

Customizing and Personalizing My Site

I might not want a large amount of text on my home page if I want to guide visitors toward my other pages. Instead of text, I can add photos or interesting links. One of the first things I would want to do is choose a template that reflects what my site is all about. Colors and themes are a great way to reinforce the message and purpose of my site.

Behind the Scenes of My Home Page

Even if I don't put much text on my home page, it's a good idea to include hidden tools that will help me promote my site, so people other than my friends and family actually see it. For example, I could add meta tags, which are hidden codes that allow search engines to find my site. I could also install stats and a counter so I know how many people are visiting. If not many are visiting, submitting my site to search engines will guide more traffic to my site.
