Pawsitive Pondering, The Naked Truth, & Observations from the Tub
Wednesday greetings from Writing in the Buff! For the last few weeks I’ve mentioned that my new website will go live soon, and here I am still hanging out at the old one. One of these days—maybe next week—I’ll surprise you and actually make the switch. In the meantime, here’s an idea of what to expect when it finally happens.
For starters, I’ll begin posting three times a week. Here’s the new schedule:
MONDAY: Pawsitive Pondering, to start your week with a smile.
If you’re new to Writing in the Buff, this is an example of a Pawsitive Pondering. No long-winded rambling (I save that for Wednesdays—ha!). Just fur-babies and grins to brighten your Monday moment:
WEDNESDAY: The Naked Truth, delivered with my clothes on. (You’re welcome.)
Wednesdays will be the same as always—sharing of The Naked Truth in a virtual coffee klatch. I hope you’re okay with that. 🙂
FRIDAY: Observations from the Tub, because life always gives us something worthy of “What the—-?”.
The photo below is an example of what to expect on Fridays. Short & sweet, just a little something to make you wonder if I have too much time on my hands.
My hubby gets the credit for noticing the battling headlines. These magazines were side by side in the grocery store, both dated March 23, 2015. Chris and Whitney were “risking it” and “over it,” both at the same time, apparently.
Regarding the Friday title, Observations from the Tub, the tub reference will be apparent when you see the new Writing in the Buff blog header. The blog header is not the same as the header for the home and other website pages. I wanted my little blog to keep it’s own identity.
Also, the new site offers a page for each of the Fireflies novels, and an excerpt from each. It’s a little scary to finally put words from my books out there for the world to see (I guess I better get over that before the first book releases). It was a whole lot easier when it was just my critique partner and my publisher giving me feedback. I know there are some of Sioux, er, oopsie, I mean you, who do not read romance. This will give you a preview of what to expect with my books.
Working with a web designer has been interesting. I know I’m a pain in the ass, and expect that when my name pops into her email inbox she probably suffers some terrible eye tic, or an allergic rash or something. Fortunately for me, she—Jennifer at J Davis Web Design—has been completely professional, and did everything I asked of her. I don’t know her middle name, but I suspect it is Patience. In any event, she suffered through all of my angst and questions, and helped me put together a site I’m pleased with. First and foremost, I wanted my website theme to be comfy and friendly, clean and uncluttered, and easy to navigate—like sitting down to share coffee and conversation with a friend. I hope when it finally goes live, you will find it to be all of those things.
Please put yourself in the Buff with a comment—in particular, I’d love to hear your take on the dueling magazine headlines I posted above. In your recent travels, have you made any observations about the weird stuff life puts out there for us? Share it!
For now, I bid you adieu, my blogger friends. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and enjoy the rest of your week!
