One of my stated goals for the year was improvements to my website. As an author, a writing platform is essential in this digital age. Social media serves to bring readers your website and direct them to your content. As a consequence, my website is an effective tool to present myself to readers so they can get to know me. My blog exists to inform but also to present content that prospective readers come to trust.
I’ve come to understand that a website, much like the platform, is a growth project. It may experience construction followed by a lull and then more work. But always it needs to be in use.
One of the ways I want to grow this year is by improving this website visually. I want to use custom themes as well as possibly shift to self-hosting though my current needs are well-fulfilled. The custom themes will server to further brand my site and content that identifies my work with the fantasy genre. Getting there is an important milestone.
I’m also sharing more of my journey to publication and growth as an author to inform readers of the process and encourage other authors. I’m also beginning to write more about other facets of development and hoping to submit guest posts on other sites and beginning to do some author interviews myself.
So, while I’m not yet able to directly address my final goal for this website I am working to further brand it for fantasy genre readers and authors. My content is slowly changing to favor that of more general writing topics and those of fantasy.
