Using Dates and Time Frames in Web Writing|
Make sure time perspectives are clear. Remember that readers will have little or no information on which to base a frame of reference.
Replace vague terms with specific references such as:
|Next week / next month / next year||February 11th, 2002 / March, 2002 / 2003|
|Last week / last month / last year||February 4th, 2002 / January 2002 / 2001|
|In nnn months/weeks||By the end of February, 2002|
|In the near future||By the end of the 2002/03 financial year|
