Expanding my online horizons

Yesterday in my writing group, we had a guest speaker, author Kathryn Freeman. She was lovely! We really enjoyed talking to her and hearing her great advice.

One of her biggest suggestions was to get ourselves set up online.

Now for me this was fine. Some other members are bit reluctant but they get the importance.

So I was thinking, I have Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, so I’m fine right? But then I realised that I don’t have a website and blog.

Hmm that was a problem.

I have recently – as of last week, in fact – created a website for our group. I took on the task because I was one of the more techo-comfortable in the group and I had the most time on my hands (which in theory is fair enough since I only work part-time, but lately I’ve been working 2 people’s part-time jobs and so not so much time). But anyway, I took on the task because, hey, it’ll be good experience at the least.

Turned out to be lots of fun actually! I took photos to put up, played around with the photos to make (in my opinion) really cool and fun logos and headers, and then played around with layout.

So where am I getting at? Well after having done all this for my writing group, and after last night’s meeting, I have decided to create my own website and blog.
