In process, “webpreneur” is left out in dark and is not able to keep track of what is happening to his own site. It should be important that sites should reflect in them presence of its owners to add some credibility and even more personal touches in them. This makes people relate easily and not be at mercy of technical people using technical ideas on readers. Not having to edit it yourself would also mean not having your own unique online home as other sites would definitely be edited by same webmasters using same concepts. For sure, readers would have noticed likeness and will probably search for something more “different”. Remember that you have to differentiate your site from what is already in others to be able to be successful.
