To Re-purpose or start over is the question.2571

Belew private msg quote post Address this user
Which is better to re-purpose an existing and aged (10+ years) site that has 'some' overlap with a new idea or to take a much more recently created site (3+ years) that is spot on target and build it out?

The building out is hard ... the repurposing can be effective as well without all the work.

I am trying to be smart by not lazy.

Which is the better choice?

Do you have some experience with this predicament of sorts?

this is a question I have also wondered about....however, I have several sites that were built using Frontpage2002 and are a straight HTML-based oriented set of sites. I often wonder how simple a switch would be, to convert each existing URL over to a Wordpress-based setup?

Now there are two of us who don't know what to do.

Is there any hope?

1) 3+ years is hardly "start over" but, that said, I would go for the "spot on" site to build out going forward. Don't dump the old one, though. It has value to link to the 3 year site.
