  1. Hello! I don't pop in here as often as I should, but I had some time today, so...hi! Still working on a number of things, but the biggest change has been outsourcing. I finally admitted to myself that I'd never build my business to the level I want it to be if I don't start hiring people. I have found delightful, hard-working people through Upwork, and it's been amazing. I'm kicking myself for not doing this sooner.
  2. It's well into September. I thought I had updated, but I haven't yet. Whoops. This update will be a bit different. Things have taken a bit of a turn. I published 2 books this year. (One about activism and one about empowering women.) Neither will ever be a best-seller, but that wasn't really the point of them. Little by little I'm getting my name out there. This week I've been asked to do 2 speaking gigs. When I was working at a street fair (I was manning a booth for an organization I belong to), when I introduced myself to someone she said, "Oh yes. I know you. I see your name

    My Divorce

    As someone who has been through 2 divorces, I know it's not easy. However, it can be a time of renewal, redirection, and opportunity. *hugs*
  4. I got word that CreateSpace and KDP will be merging, and so I found the official guide. https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/GSJULX3WGP36HQ3R It's going to affect royalties, costs (in some cases), etc., so it's worth a read.
  5. Not a huge fan of the new Google interface. Ugh. I know I'll get used to it, but right now it kinda sucks.
  6. I'm looking for a copywriting course. Any recommendations?
  7. I think that even a modern audience wants to know that there is true, lasting love. (Or at least the potential for it.) You can always flash forward with the epilogue and say how the couple was together for 50 years, had kids, etc. Many relationships just start differently than they used to. Now you have online dating, social media, etc. My parents were introduced by my mom's (my) cousin, who was friends with my dad. I met my 1st husband at a skating rink. Now you have people meeting with websites and apps. You have different issues, too. It used to take time to get to know each othe
  8. This is just a curiosity thing for me. Why is it that some sites take forever to load? Even when you are on the site, each page takes forever when you move from page to page? Is it a hosting issue? Or something else? Edited to add: It's not just on one device. It's phone, iPad, & laptop.
  9. Not difficult. A little time-consuming. I use Weebly for hosting (paid version), so migrating sites from http to https wasn't hard (once I figured out how LOL). Moving content was a pain, though.
  10. I think all of my sites have been switched over to https except one. Hopefully that one will be done this week.
  11. It's July! Already! Here's my progress: 1) What will you start doing in 2018 that you are not doing in 2017? I have a day job that I dearly love, and I don't see myself leaving it anytime soon; however, I love being my own boss, so I know that I am eventually going to be working for myself again. I still have my biz on the side, but I am going to devote more time to it. I want to build that biz to the point where this time next year I will have the option to work for myself or keep my biz as a side job. Update: Not as enamored with t
  12. It really depends on what you're looking for. If you want to encourage more sales in general, I would go for the generic cover. If you want something that can be promoted as a Christmas gift every year (and, in turn, boost the sales of the other books), I would go with the Christmas cover. IMHO, having one of the books that you could really promote every year as a gift might be the better alternative. People might be willing to buy the one book because it's a Christmas gift, and if they like it they can buy the other books in the series. You may not sell many of that book dur
  13. It's June! Already! WHERE IS THIS YEAR GOING?! Here's my progress: 1) What will you start doing in 2018 that you are not doing in 2017?
