So last summer, around July 4th, I built a new website with the help of Aries Labs.
It was fun to put little organic touches in it, like pretending it was a wooden desk, adding a cup of ice tea, which I was pretty addicted to last summer, adding a pen, adding my book, and my picture too.
It felt like my own desk!
But times change.
For one thing, I stopped drinking iced tea! My family is full of dentists, and they said that the acid in the tea is really bad for your enamel. So I started drinking a lot of water instead. Purity became more important.
Since last summer I’ve started to do more research around social media, and write a lot more. Now I’m about to come out with my second book, The Wild Woman’s Guide to Social Media. This week, I’m giving a workshop for the City of Austin called “Advanced Social Media Tactics for Jedis.” I’m so excited to do this!
In the course of researching my book about social media, I found out about Google Heat Maps, and I thought, “I’d REALLY like to design my website around this idea too.”
And I’ve started to do a lot more webinars too, so check them out here.
And I wanted to start giving people a mini-e-course as a way to say thank you for signing up for my enewsletter. Now, finally, after much procrastination, if you look in the top left of the page, you’ll see that I’ve done it!
So in short, my concepts of what I want to do with this website needed to reflect my new knowledge and growing sophistication around social media.
It was time to say goodbye to the old, organic design, and go with something slicker, and more professional. Thanks to Aries Labs, it got done! It’s not totally complete yet but it’s getting there.
What do you think of the new look?
