First, the news:
Today I am pleased to announce that Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers! is the featured book on Cindy’s Notebook and she will be running nonfiction books throughout the month of May.
And now . . .
Here is an example of why we all need to visit our own websites more often.
I am an author–a poor indie-author–who attempts to do as much as I can myself in order to save a buck. Everything I know about computers, websites, and social media sites was self-taught and not without a healthy dose of learning from my mistakes.
This brings us to this morning.
I woke at 6:30 A.M. knowing I would have a great deal of work to do in order to spread the exciting news above across a number of sites on the web and to prepare some notes for tomorrows interview so I might sound somewhat intelligent. I went to my website first to post the news of my book being featured on a book blog when I discovered to my horror that all my book cover photos had disappeared. All this before my first cup of coffee.
As I began the long process of re-inserting the thirteen missing photos, it occurred to me what had happened. I began my writer journey on Word Press two years ago with my E. A. Barker’s Blog Madness page and I just added this site in January of this year to support the book. I kept the two separate, or so I thought, because the Ms. Creant site was for business and the old blog was for whatever I felt like writing about; usually in a non-business-like way.
A few weeks ago, I posted part 4 of my Your Beliefs Create Your Reality series. While I was there on the blog site, I decided to clear out a bunch of seemingly redundant photos of the book’s cover. You can probably guess the rest.
WHO KNEW that each separate site shared the same photo file? I sure didn’t. So I am embarrassed to say that for the past few weeks visitors to my website were greeted with nothing but text. The moral of the story is:
Go to your own website frequently!
You never know what you will find.
