My new online home
Greetings, dear readers!
When I started blogging back in May, 2006, I never dreamed I’d
- still be doing it
- win the St. Louis Writers Guild Short Story contest
- try my hand at fiction
- start a novel
- need to build a “platform”
But here I am. Nearly ten years later with my very own URL. I’m embarrassed to admit how much I’ve fretted over this. Months and months have gone by. I have researched and asked questions and poked around and laid awake nights thinking about it. I made some fancy business cards online with my own URL just to see what it would look like. Then I chickened out and chucked the design. I told myself that I could stay at blogger and that would be fine. Yet every time I worked my way through a “new author” program I learned all the reasons why I needed my own site. And every time someone has asked me for my website, I’ve been just a bit shy about still forking over that old blogger address.
Finally, I decided that I just needed to jump in. So here I am. It’s a bit cold right now, but it’ll warm up, right?
Will work on transferring my old blog posts here, to have everything in one spot, but until then, you can visit my old home any time you want. Just ask me for the link.
There. That’s not so bad, is it? (That’s for me, not you. I know you’re fine.)
