Writing in the Buff has a new home and a new header. What do you think of Tub Lady? Did you click to the home page yet? There’s a new header over there, too.
The header menu is pretty unobtrusive, which is just what I asked for. It will, of course, take you to the rest of the website which includes excerpts from upcoming books and a few other goodies. I’m pleased with my virtual abode, and hope you are as well.
My goals were to create a warm and friendly site that readers would feel comfortable with, something easy to navigate. If you click around a bit and run into any problems, please let me know.
If you usually receive email notifications of new Writing in the Buff posts but didn’t receive this, please go ahead and sign up via the email widget at the TOP of the side bar to put yourself back in the loop.
There is a second signup widget further down, and that one is for the newsletter. Please sign up for that, as well, to be notified of contests and giveaways, book release dates, or other newsy stuff. The newsletter will only go out when there is info to share (probably about 4-6 times a year). Never any spam.
As I mentioned last week, this whole build-a-website dealio was an interesting process. My web designer, Jennifer of J Davis Web Design, was patient and professional, and she took my wish list and made it happen. I populated the pages myself, but she worked her magic to make everything look and work the way it’s supposed to—in short, a ton of behind-the-scenes stuff way beyond my ability to comprehend. Thank you, Jennifer!
The main thing is that I learned a lot, and you know what that means, right Buttercup? I have to share my newfound knowledge. Therefore, I give you:

#2. When you do see it for the first time, it’s not quite what you expected.
#3. It takes a third party to help you see its finer qualities.
#4. As time goes on you realize it’s actually pretty good looking.
#5. In fact, the more time you spend with it, the prettier it becomes.
#6. And after a few glasses of wine, you think it’s pretty damn spectacular.
#7. After the wine is gone, you’re still glad you showed up for the party.
Thanks for hanging out with me. Please check out the new website, then put yourself in the Buff and tell me what you think!
