One of the (many) reasons I’ve been inconsistent with my posting lately is that I’ve been working on a new design for the site. Check it out: The (New and Fancier) Writer’s Advocate
(Go ahead and click it. I’ll follow you, and so will all of the words below. Here, one more time: The (New and Fancier) Writer’s Advocate)
I’ll keep the old site up briefly to give readers a chance to change their bookmarks. If you’ve subscribed to this blog through email or RSS, please visit the new site and use the icons in the very top right to update your subscription. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Below my GoodReads all-time shelf excerpt is another widget powered by Amazon, which displays some music recommendations. It’s mostly jazz, my favorite type of music, and it’s generally pretty modern stuff. I encourage you to listen while you’re reading my posts, and who knows? Maybe you’ll find something you like.
Finishing off the left side of each page is another GoodReads widget—this one showing the twelve books I’ve read most recently. Along with a star rating, this nifty little widget includes a very brief review that I’ll write for each book. If you’re looking for representation, one of the best ways to find out if we’re a match is to pick up a couple of the books that I’ve rated highly. If you’re not looking for representation, well, hopefully I’ll help you find some great new books to read!
The home page features my Twitter feed on the right side, but this will disappear when you expand one of the posts. Also notice the Share button at the top and bottom of each post, and feel free to use it to spread the word if you like something I’ve posted.
Anyway, there’s my very quick rundown of the new site. I’d really love to get your opinion on it, so please, please submit a comment and let me know what you think.
