I spend a lot of time improving the look and feel of this-here blog. Just take a look at that ripping new subscription box over in the sidebar, for instance.
But meanwhile, my own writer website was kind of thrown on the back burner. Yeah, that’s a screen shot of it there on the right. Lovely, eh?
Over time, it started to look dated. Stuff got broken and I couldn’t update some of the pages anymore.
I limped along for a while, because the site was still getting me some nice gigs, and it ranked great for my key search term, as you can see.
But finally…I couldn’t take it anymore.
So I called on my awesome, hardworking yet affordable webmaster, David Robert Hogg. He helped me create a much better look for my writer site — and when I say “helped,” I mean he did like 95% of everything, and I checked the links to make sure they worked.
Even better, now it’s in WordPress, so I can easily update it myself in future.
Wanna see? You can take a tour below. In this short video, I show you chapter and verse on why my old site sucked, and then show you how the new site does it better.
Hopefully some good ideas in there for writers to use on their own sites. You can view it here.
