Blogs are more fun than websites, I know. I’m proud of my website, which was designed and is maintained by Kathy Temean, but even I don’t go to my website as often as I drop by my blog to see what readers might have to say that day. A blog is a living thing compared to the trophy room of a website.
Nevertheless, the website is there to provide information about the author for those who might have an interest. It’s like setting up your own card table at a festival signing where each author vies for the attention of the patrons already burdened by sagging book bags, picking up this title or that, flipping through a couple of pages before deciding whether to invest or move on.
Each of us wants to have a card table that attracts attention and Kathy did a really nice job decorating mine. I couldn’t have done it and I’m grateful to her. Now and then I have a new title come out, or maybe I’m lucky enough to receive some attention for one book or another, so I tell Kathy and she moves things around on the table to accommodate the latest addition.
If you haven’t checked out my website lately, I would be pleased if you decide to pay it a visit. If not for me, at least think of Kathy. What about HER feelings? I think more than 160 people have signed my guest book now. If you’ve never done that, feel free to add that to your New Year’s resolutions.
