Ch-Ch-Change…is good

I took a break from filling out online resumes yesterday to finally start making some of those blog changes I wanted. Thanks to Webtalks’ Ashwini Khare, I was able to upload the three column design after I made a few upgrades to my site. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I’m happy with the result. I’ll probably be changing the arrangement of the different topics in the sidebars later this week, so please let me know what you think about the set-up.

I had to remove the sidebar topics that held the “Blogs of Note,” Author Interviews/Guest Blogs, and the Doing My Homework/Book Sense 101 columns, but I was able to re-label all of those (with the exception of Blogs of Note—and I plan to do that soon) with the appropriate tag. Now if you want to look at any of these items, just click the appropriate tag and they should show up. If you find a column that you believe is mis-tagged, please let me know. I did this late into last night and started up again this morning. There are seven columns that I could not label because every time I tried the blog would erase, but I’ve got a few things I’m going to try to fix that.

In the coming days I will be updating my profile, posting new columns and continuing to update the look of Bookseller Chick. Now is the time to also let me know about any links that need updating, links that need removed, and links that need to be added. Also, any and all suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. Part of good marketing is having a site that you can navigate well, and I’m interested to hear your thoughts.

I like the way you manage the look of your site, no complaints here.

The site looks great! I discovered that Webtalk has a new three column design for my template, too - yay!

Was wondering if you might be interested in adding a link to my site; I try to provide coverage of literary news in science fiction and fantasy.

You are a braver soul than I! I couldn't begin to tackle the three-column format, but yours looks good.

Best of luck on sending out your resumes!
