Spring has finally come to Toronto. Trees are green, flowers are blooming, sidewalk cafes are open, my neighbourhood is alive with people shopping, eating, people watching in the park and basking in the months before winter will arrive again.
I’ve taken the winter to reflect on publishing a blog; where to publish, what service to use and how to provide meaningful content to my #Readers. I decided to scratch my free WordPress blog—trust me nothing in life is free, keep my domain, zoeasherblog.com and transfer that domain to my favourite people at Godaddy.com where all my domains reside. Doing so began an interesting challenge and without Godaddy’s help, I might still be trying to get this done. So in May, I will have a zoeasherblog.com WordPress site hosted and registered with Godaddy, the awaesome people who provie a real live expert to help you 24/7. Now “at home“ the question is how to utilize this blog and the new one for the best experience my Readers can have.
Since my last post, I have made progress on my second book, “For Pleasure & Pain” in the “Choices” trilogy, dialogued with publishers and considered self-publishing, pitched articles, joined a couple of FB groups, and rented a house next winter in the south of France.
And now I am figuring out the categories I will use for my posts and whether they better belong here or on my new WordPress site. So far I am considering: Books, mine, reviews of other authors’ books, and what I am currently working on. My Journey to the South of France, and all its excitement and challenges—and maybe some useful ideas for my readers. Life with Nanou, my beloved chihuahua and our adventures. Life in the Village of Yorkville; my hood, what’s happening, interviews with people who live and work in the area, news and events. I would love to hear from you with your ideas and comments on how I can make these site ones you would find useful. And since you can’t comment here and the new site is getting set up, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until then, A bientot, Zoe
