If you read my blog on an actual computer, you may notice that it looks a little different. I’ve had the same theme since I started two years ago, and I wanted something more colorful, more fun. Plus, I have a better grasp of how WordPress works now, so even though there were a few kinks here and there, I was able to create something a little more complex than before. I’m really pleased with it. The main change is of course the color, but the sidebar moved to the right, since I think that’s where the eye naturally goes. I added a couple of things to the sidebar and re-ordered it. I also updated my About page and added a new page, Shop, which features some of my Etsy items.
Of course, WordPress also reminded me that I’ve almost hit my storage limit, which means within the next month I’ll be making some decisions about the next step. I’m leaning toward upgrading my WordPress plan for a few reasons: the cost includes the domain, it has plenty of storage, it will continue to allow readers to easily comment on posts, and most importantly, it’s what I’m familiar and comfortable with. With any luck, it will allow me to keep going without causing any hiccups for me or you!
Now, let me get to the more exciting part of yesterday: I created a website for my proofreading, bonnymoseley.com! It’s a work in progress; I’m sure I’ll be fine-tuning it for a while. But it’s a solid start, a way for potential clients to find me, get an idea of how I can help them, and see that I take it seriously. Before you comment that there’s no mention of cost/pricing/rates: yep, I know. I’m working that bit out and didn’t want to put it out there before I was ready. It will be on there in the near future. Feel free to share with any of your writing friends, or keep me in mind for YOUR writing project!
No knitting from yesterday; I was busy on the computer all day long. And when I did pick up my knitting late last night before bed, I knit an extra row of gray on the striped hat and yes it looks noticeable and yes I need to tink back and yes I put it in timeout and went to bed. So I’ll give you a puppy photo instead. “Can we go outside now mom pleeeeeeease???”
It’s amazing how much time the techy side of blogging eats up, isn’t it. I wish someone else would do it all for me so I could simply knit MORE!
Not only that, but it’s not the funnest part of the job, either! At least it’s not like I’m writing code or anything, I suppose.
Cute puppies! Just checked out your editing website. I bookmarked it. If I ever finish my book I would love to have a fellow knit blogger as a proof-reader! (That’s the right term, right?)
Yep, that’s the right term, and thank you!! I appreciate it. I enjoy your blog so I’m sure your book would be just as good! What kind of book are you writing? (Asking as a reader/fellow writer who loves to know what other people are working on.)
I’m writing fantasy novel. It’s, I guess young adult, but I hope it’ll appeal to more than just young adults.
And thank you for the complement on my writing!
