New website design!

Uncategorized

As you can see, I’ve got a brand new, great-looking website! I have to thank my husband for that. He’s been working the last month or two converting everything over from WordPress to BlogEngine.net and trying to convert my weird demands into a useable website. I think he’s succeeded! There will still be things that we’re working on, but overall, I think the design rocks! What do you think?

So watch for new updates in the coming weeks and some interesting and exciting news from me!

    And I did a pretty good job if I say so myself.

    It’s gorgeous!

    The one problem you might have (and this is just an art-thing) is that the main visual line in your header image directs attention off of the page–you might consider mirror-flipping the image so that the pen’s ink-end is pointed towards the text. But other than that–perfect.

    That’s a really good point, Ravyn! I’ll give the hubby a holla about it…tomorrow. I already got him out of bed to fix the comments! I don’t think I’d make it through the night if I got him out of bed again. lol 🙂

    Woo! Hubby flipped the quill pen around to face the other way. I definitely like the change. Thanks again, Ravyn! 🙂

    Very nice blog theme, caught my eye immediately, I redid my blog theme over at my poetry blog but nothing as nice, I am not as good a graphic artist. One thing I would do and its just a me thing is have the posts on the left and the column on the right, for some reason I like reading posts on the left, it is a peeve of mine.

    Thanks for the nice words!

    DB> That’s a good suggestion. We’re going to do it on the test site we have and see how it looks. We may just do the flip-flop! 🙂

    Hi Venessa,

    Positive Feedback: look gorgeous. Really emphasizes your passion for writing. Found it quite appropriate.

    Negative Feedback: if you’re still specializing in the horror genre of writing, I prefer your older design with the blood splatters. I thought it was more creative and appealing (since I’m a major fan of zombies and the like).

    Suggestion Feedback: Your blog post frame sizes are smaller than before. Although you can now displays more content from your web site but the focus is less on what you write. There is more web site content that is distracting, especially with all the social networking icons on the top of your page.

    Overall, I think your husband did a great job with a beautiful design. It’s very clean. But I must confess that I enjoyed the other web site better due to personal tastes and more emphasis on the blog post content, and not so much on the web site sections (such as the visual header, the blog links, entrecard ads, etc.).

    Either way, I’m just glad to discover you’re back online. I’m still aiming to publish my upcoming novel so it’s always encouraging to see your posts about the writing career. Looking forward to more posts!
