A new look ….
With the start of an exciting new year, I’ve done some maintenance work on my blog today – I’m not sure if I’ll keep this background, but I do like the cleaner look and feel of the style of this; and especially the drop-down menus.
I’ve added two new tabs: Media, and Poems: WIP …
Media lists my author interviews, book features and what’s coming up in my efforts to promote my books. The Poems: WIP tab contains a drop-down menu with my latest collection of poems: Essence of Woman. I’ll be working on the collection throughout the year and hope to publish by the end of the year. The poetry and published works tabs have drop-down menus so that you can select from a sub-menu. I really like this cleaner style!
Updated Bio & Memberships tab …
I’ve been working on my writer’s ‘platform’ this year, and that includes seeking memberships in organizations where I can interact with other writers and promote my writing more effectively. I’ll be adding to this over the year as well – keeping in mind that I have absolutely no budget for this, I’m trying to find places where I don’t need to pay membership dues, at least for now.
Other Updates …
My bio page also includes blog awards; and while I’m extremely grateful for all the awards I received in my first year of blogging, I was not able to keep up with the criteria of posting and passing these awards on. I am sorry for dropping the ball there. And as I said, I do appreciate receiving these, but will have to bow out this year as well, simply because I don’t have enough energy to keep up with them. As far as I’m concerned, we ALL should have these awards, because we’re an AWESOME blogging community!
I am so grateful to everyone who visits my blog and leaves likes and comments; you are all so much appreciated, and I’m honoured to share the blogosphere with you! I’m slowly getting back to posting and visiting and commenting on your blogs too, so please don’t give up on me!
~ Much love from Julie, and all the best for 2013!
