I’ve added a now page to my site. It’s a simple page that lets people know what I’m doing right now.
It’s also a movement started by one of my favourite people on the internet, Derek Sivers. You can see more examples over at nownownow.com. It may seem like an odd thing to do, but it makes perfect sense. As Sivers explains:
“Most websites have a link that says “about”. It goes to a page that tells you something about the background of this person or business. For short, people just call it an “about page”.
Most websites have a link that says “contact”. It goes to a page that tells you how to contact this person or business. For short, people just call it a “contact page”.
So a website with a link that says “now” goes to a page that tells you what this person is focused on at this point in their life. For short, we call it a “now page”.”
If you haven’t got a now page on your site, it might be worth making one.
