Almost There...

It was a busy weekend, as I was trying to get everything still to do for Serena's website and remaining social media links completed.

Although I published Serena's first proper blog post on Saturday and it could be read via my links, it wasn't showing up on the blog page I'd created. Clearly I hadn't done something I should have and I couldn't see what it was... :(

After consulting fellow writers: Patsy Collins and poet, Liz Brownlee who both have Wordpress sites, I finally found what I needed to do. It did mean changing pages and moving text, but finally this evening everything went where it should- and worked.

Tomorrow I'll start the domain mapping process to apply Serena's domain name - and pay the annual fee for doing so.

Meanwhile, Serena now has a Facebook page to go with the  existing Twitter account...

My pictures from my trip to Bath last year have begun to be helpful. Beside my lady with a fan, you will probably be seeing the dancing figures- these were on the wall in the Fashion Museum and represent the different positions in a dance- sadly I didn't make a note of what the dance was...

All I need now is to get on with the Nottinghamshire novella/potential short novel.

I've probably got another three to four chapters left of my contemporary romance to write, and as soon as that draft is completed, I'll be returning to Hugh and Sarah's historical romance story.

I'm amazed how much I've managed in a little over a week. And now that's done I can concentrate on writing, knowing the support framework is in place and there when I need it...

How to dance...

  1. Glad it's getting there, Carol. It's so frustrating when we can't get things how we want them and can't see why.

    1. Yes it is, Patsy. I eventually discovered my remaining problem was caused by something I did on the first day I set up the website. Once I worked through pages of instructions, everything did what it was meant to. :))

  4. Thanks, Rosemary. Yes I saw your name on Serena's twitter followers, thanks you for that too. :)

    I've now got Serena's social media up to date, including her Amazon author page- though that needed some help due to technical issues at their end.

  5. It's so satisfying when it all comes together isn't it, Carol.

    1. Yes, it is, Wendy. Finally seeing everything as I imagined it in my mind, now on the screen. :-)
