At the moment, I have hired someone to help me revamp my website at http://www.ruthannnordin.com. I want to do something that looks more like this blog. I really like the header I have and always wanted it to be on my website. But since I was dealing with a template, I couldn’t. After having the website for six years, I finally decided it was time to let someone who knows what she’s doing work on it. Why did it take so long? I guess because I was so busy writing, it was easy to keep letting it go.
The sad truth is, if it’s not writing, I have a harder time of getting around to it. 😀 ButI finally am.
And my question to all of you is, what would you like to see on my website?
The only things I won’t put up is a contact form, my email address, or my physical address or phone number. The reason is because I’ve been on the receiving end of a couple harasses in the past and those four things make it easier for them to stalk me. Not fun stuff.
But I can look into putting up anything else. Let me know and I’ll see what I can do about it. You can leave a comment here or tell me through Facebook. Here’s my Facebook timeline. Just click on send a message and I’ll check to see if anything pops up over there: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ruth-Ann-Nordins-Author-Page/154754267948267.
I’ve been working slowly on doing something different with mine on the book page. Like having each book have its own page. I just haven’t had time to finish it. I have a contact page, but the only messages I’ve been sent that I don’t like to get is strangers asking me to review their books. LOL. As far as what I would like to see on your site, I guess having good book pages with good descriptions of your books is probably the important thing.
I used to get those requests, but after stating in my FAQs that I don’t have time to do them, they stopped. I might get one once in a blue moon, but I still have to say no. I don’t get much reading in as it is, so I’d rather read books I pick out myself than read something someone else wants me to read.
The person vamping up my website did suggest that a book have its own page, and I believe she’ll get me going on it. If I can do more “inspiration for the book” posts and sample scenes, I can use those to put in each book page more easily. It’ll be a process with 40 books, but it gives me something to post about for a while. 😀 If I did one book a week, that would take less than a year.
