I was a webmaster for a few websites for a brief period of time but I wasn't very good and it was too brief. All in all I have no idea what the job title of webmastering may entail. I do however work as a front-end developer, in-house, and prefer to focus on those sorts of details rather than content updates, etc.

However I may be taking on a webmaster job and I'm curious if anyone can give some insight as to what that's like? I'm sure it completely depends on the client but I'm curious to hear descriptions of your experiences? Were you expected to make updates late at night? Do you provide monthly analytics reports? Are you on call throughout the week?
