A New Era

Okay, so that sounds totally grand and over-the-top, but I am trying to streamline the things I do online and look at exactly what I want from my website. Not just what I want for myself, to make things easier and more manageable, but also what I want to offer people.

Some author websites are purely informational and pretty static, but I don’t want mine to be like that. (Not that I am judging those sites because, of course, they serve an important purpose and often look very pretty.) At the moment I hardly have any content here… but that will change! As soon as I have time away from writing projects and Other Life Stuff. I want to include some excerpts over here, free reads, Q&A sessions… lots of things! Eventually.

For now, though, I am going to move all of my blogging over here to keep things shiny and updated. Yes, yes, we all know I’ve ‘left LiveJournal’ before – and I always go back. But this time is different. (It is!) This time, I am not really leaving LJ because I’ll still be hanging out at The Elevensies and I’ll still be reading people’s blogs and commenting. I just won’t be posting my own ramblings there – maybe I’ll consider crossposting eventually, but not to begin with. I’ve had 3 wonderful years on LJ and I really do need a change of scene. I also need to be a bit more organised in my approach to online communications – there’s so much going on out there, I sometimes get overwhelmed with it all. I’ll leave my LiveJournal as it is for now, so any crazy interested peeps can check out the archives from the beginning of my writing/publication journey. But the new stuff will go here from now on…

So plug the address into your Google Reader (there’s an RSS feed button at the top of the page), bookmark the site and please come by and visit occasionally. I’d really appreciate seeing some friendly faces around here. 🙂

    Your site looks gorgeous, and very easy on the eye. 🙂 Best of luck, Kaz, and I’m looking forward to seeing your posts. 🙂

      Thanks so much, everybody! 🙂 I’m trying to figure out if I can get the comments to do that LJ-thing. I think there’s a plugin I can get… *is confused by WordPress*

    Love it!!! I’ve got my Grand Blog Re-Opening going on over at LJ today. (Great minds think alike!)

    I’m going to link to yours on my blog. Yay!

      Thank you!!!

      I am excited because I just figured out how to install a plug-in so the comments are threaded. Wooo! 😉

    Woo-hoo! Beautiful site, can’t wait to see what you create here.

    I’m going to syndicate you on LJ so I can read you on my friends page.

    We need to break a bottle of champagne over the bow, or something….
