I did it! After much hair-pulling, groaning, and gnashing of teeth, I managed to revise my RunawayPublishing.com editing website. As you can probably guess, website development is not my forte. It doesn’t come easily to me, even with the “so simple!” WordPress templates touted by others. Despite this, I created two websites with my limited skills, this one and my editing website.
The revised site has my new company logo, created with the help of a graphic artist I hired on Fiverr.com, and I switched to a different theme with new templates. It’s a simple website, but I think it’s a vast improvement over my old website.
I would have preferred to hire a professional website developer to do this work for me, but the budget is complaining lately, so I decided I had to take it on myself. I ran into some problems and it took several days of tinkering to overcome them. For example, why did the exact same steps to add my social media button links produce error messages one day, but then magically work the next? Why did the links to my blog posts disappear and then suddenly reappear days later when I made a totally unrelated change? It’s a mystery.
The sense of accomplishment I’m feeling is like winning a hurdle race. A very slow, days-long race. If you get a chance, check out RunawayPublishing.com and let me know what you think. If you have suggestions for improvements, I may or may not be able to implement them, but I appreciate your feedback!
After I recover from this effort, I might tackle HeidiEliason.com next. Yikes, what am I saying?!
