Don't you just love to read an article and realize you've done something all wrong? Yea, me too. *remove tongue from cheek*
The good part, at least I know how to fix it.
I'm talking about my website.
My good friend, Lea-Ellen, from Night Owl Editing, posted a link describing 5 common mistakes for websites. After reading it, intense feelings of "pi$$ed off" filled my little brain because of all the work I foresee in my future.
Immediately I deleted it...but not before making some notes ;)
Here is what I realized about my own blog:
Mistake #1) I welcome people to my official website.
This is a mistake because you never want to identify it as such. Even worse than website, is referring it to your web page! .....okay but this is beyond me.
Mistake #2 It's not a blog.
Ok, I might have bloggish features. I'll cease this action but keep my link to my blog.
Mistake #3 I need to add Teasers
Let's see...what can I use for teasers? Book excerpts and other stuff. I have some other ideas in mind. I hope you'll check out my blog as it transforms over the next couple of weeks!
Updating and revising may be a hassle, but let's face it: It's a necessary part of growth!
