So, you ask, “Why does my site need to be maintained?” It’s not like it’s my store building, affected by the sun and weather. The files are not fading! Why should some website files change over time and need to be maintained?
Okay, that is kind of correct. Your website is not actually fading or becoming weathered like your store. But it’s not a static object on display in a museum, either. There are a few ways that bugs, mistakes, and changes accumulate in your website files. One is that the web is constantly changing (which is unpreventable), or you may have made changes while adding to your website in such a way that brought new complications. And, there are other reasons — programs upon which your website depends may have changed and need to be updated, which can necessitate other changes, updates, and corrections, (which is inescapable).
