I’m Ready for Review (I Think)

Once you add Google Friend Connect to your website, you feel absolutely naked online. It’s as if you’re alone in a vast wilderness. Hello? Can anyone hear me?

I decided tonight that I would throw all caution to the wind and invite all 600+ Facebook friends to check out the new website, leave some comments, and…hopefully…keep me company in that bare area of white space under “Followers” in the side bar.

Of course, I realize that most of my acquaintances aren’t checking out Facebook right now. After all, it’s FHE night. So all you ACS alumni–now’s the time to show some support, okay? I’m hoping that by tomorrow morning I’ll get a few hits and a few Google Friends. (I guess I’d better send out a few emails as insurance.)

Anyway, I’m still working on getting my book trailer embedded on the home page, as well as a few other images. But please feel free to tell me what works and what doesn’t. The Bio’s too long, isn’t it? And I know I need to post a couple of sample chapters from The Reckoning and my newly finished manuscript, Laps. I have a ton of links that still need to be added, plus some poetry. But I’d welcome comments on the Baghdad photos in the meantime. Should I add photos of Greece or Lebanon?

This is still very much a work in progress, so put your two cents in now.

  1. This looks good to me! You girls are all way ahead of me. By the time I catch up, you’ll be on to bigger and better things. Oh, well.

    I love the picture as well as the message. Good going!

    • Thanks, Barbara. Actually, it’s becoming easier and easier for us neophytes (in terms of cyberspace) to look like we know what we’re doing. The website workshop at the Storytellers Conference helped a lot, and if you’re patient, WordPress really is quite easy to work with…other than the whole embedding images into widgets thing…but I’ll get there!

  2. Oh Tanya how beautiful! I love the rich colors and professional look. You did a great job here! Can’t wait to see all the additions you have planned, as it will only make it better. :) Congrats!

    • Karen, you helped a lot and I’m going to add that plug-in today. Thanks!

    • Glad you like it. I decided to use that same banner for my other blog so that it would tie in better. Now I just need to add an obvious link to my other blog here on my website.

  3. Tanya,
    I enjoyed the bio and don’t think it’s too long. I liked the photos and woudl love to see more.

    • Thanks for the feedback, Terry. I’ll have to round up some more pics. Do you mean of Baghdad, or other places too? In any case, it might take a while.
