My new design will go live sometime this weekend! As I mentioned previously, I’m developing a new feature content area on my blog for country living how-to’s, recipes, crafts, and other fun stuff. I’ll be posting that content through the blog so it can be categorized. Along with primarily new material, I’ll be reposting some recipes I’ve done before so they can be indexed properly on the main How to Do Stuff page (which will make it easier to find a recipe I posted, say, a year ago, rather than having to do a search). For the most part, I’ll be posting these with the “read more” tag to keep the posts short and not overwhelm the blog.
I’ll still be writing daily “regular” blog posts, of course. As I develop new material, I’ll post it either first and beneath the regular daily post or on the weekends. I’ve been taking weekends off blogging for awhile, but I plan to go back to posting on weekends to get up new How to Do Stuff content–so check in on the weekends to see what I’m up to! It will take months, in fact years, to fulfill my entire vision for the How to Do Stuff pages, and you’ll probably see me work on it in spurts that die down when I have a book deadline.
It will take a while to get everything set up, but once the new design and index pages are built, hopefully this will make more sense. I hope the feature content adds to the fun you have when you come here. Without all of you, nothing I do here would matter! Please note that relevant advertising is being added to the site to offset design and development expenses and to allow me to devote more time to creating the quality content I want to bring here….not to mention all the nonsense.
This weekend’s Free Book Friday–a November Silhouette Special Edition release, Dear Santa by Karen Templeton. Let me know if you want it, and let me know what you think about the new design and features! (Check back later to see the design if it’s not here when you first stop by.) Drawing Monday!
I want to end with a big hug to all of you who stop by here regularly and inspire me to work harder to make a great blog for you! :hug:
P.S. And, if you’re like me and have no idea how to use an RSS feed (seriously, I’m such a tech-tard), the latest article on Dandelion on using a feed reader is for you! (Then come back and subscribe to my feed!) I’m gonna go read it myself right now. Yes, I have a feed and yet don’t know how to use it myself…. 😮
