The Worst Websites of 2011: Third Quarter Contenders (First Run-Through) and How These Sites Relate to Your Website
October 12th, 2011 12:12 am by Vincent Flanders
I spent a lot of time working on the Second Quarter Contenders so it would be in its final format. I’m three months behind on the Third Quarter and I have 33 contenders for worst site instead of “only” 20 in Q2. So instead of waiting to produce perfection, I’m breaking the process down into five steps—I call them “Run-Throughs”—and giving material to you as I create it.
What I’m releasing today is Run-Through #1. When I complete a section, I’ll check it off and you’ll know there’s something new to read. Here are the five:
- Examine Daily Suckers and pick out the worst of the worst.
- Edit and simplify the text, add screenshots and add commentary from my brilliant readers.
- Put sites in order of suckiness. Eliminate the “not-so-sucky.”
- Add “How These Sites Relate to Your Website” commentary, if necessary.
- Final format.
It’s ugly, but there’s still value in the material.
