Being an independent publisher means the websites that support the business have to be in my control; I patched together a workable online catalog long before most users were @anywhere.
I revolutionized my thinking over this one weekend. See KathleenKBooks.WordPress.com.
I took the beautiful toolbox provided by WordPress.com and re-assembled my catalog in a simple outline format that translates well through the WordPress “themes” offered for free. So far, I’ve tried Ryu, Oulipo, McKinley, Shaan, Twenty Twelve, Chunk, Forever, Suits. Since I organized the pages along their simple principles, it’s a single click to change themes. That’s cool!
I will do the higher tech work of redirecting my own domain traffic to this setup later this week but, really, it’s a great feeling of relief and progress to put the website into a much more adaptable framework.
Kevin Hart, the comedian, famously says: “Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to put the work in.” I get that. It’s why “I put the work in” this weekend polishing my website.
I love making books; hopefully this overhaul helps you rowdier readers find and appreciate them!
