It’s Thursday and the week is almost over. Today I thought I’d share some new decorating and housekeeping I’ve done on my website. I’m so active on my blog that I tend to forget I actually have a website too. Yeah. I know. Surprising, huh?
I’ve been woefully neglectful of MaeClair.com and decided it was time to dress up the décor. I’ve added two new pages – – one for Weathering Rock and one for my Weathering Rock book trailer. Why two?
Er, it’s an ugly story that involves uncooperative content boxes, a pathetically immature hissy fit thrown by yours-truly, and a long call to Go Daddy tech support. Let’s just say it was easier to do it this way (and hey, I work with graphic images and website interfaces constantly as part of my day job. Sometimes you just have to give the round to the web platform). Fortunately, my computer and I are friends again. I even managed to add a Twitter stream to my home page, though it’s not exactly the way I envisioned it.
Go Daddy tells me they are revamping their Website Tonight package and rolling out a new platform within the next few weeks that will make the behind-the-scenes stuff easier to manage. I’m crossing my fingers as there’s a lot more I’d like to do but, in the meantime, I thought I’d say “Hey, look, what I did!” LOL! If you get a chance, check it out at MaeClair.com. I give Go Daddy high marks for the background (which I love) and a tech support department that has the ability to calm even a highly-strung writer at wit’s end.
