The discussion broke out about what to do with your blog in case of death. And thought maybe we should think about it…
So here are few things to consider about how to create a Dead Mans Post.
First make sure you hosting is paid for in advance. So like it will be up for a month or so even if something happens.
Then write a post that would maybe talk about somethings that are recent, so you will have to keep it updated.
Set this to post a week or so in the future, but always keep on top of it to continue moving it. Once you are gone no one will know to do this, and it will get posted.
Make sure you have something set up like IFTT so it moves posting it on several sites for a few days..
Make sure to word your post like you are speaking in the after life.
Now some things to consider.
- I would make mine funny because it is who I am.
- If you are an encourager maybe make this a post of love and encouragement to those that are left behind. That special message could really lift up a friend.
- Know your audience.
- Yes this is a destruct sequence like on Lost where you must enter a code to keep it from going out.
This could be fun, and yet it could be inspiring.
Just a thought, hope it helps someone take a bite out of death.
