Want a Blog or Website but Don’t Know How to Get Started?

Every business should have a website. Small or large, if you are selling something or providing a service you need a website so customers can find you. Studies show that people under 40 use their phones or computers to search the internet for what they need. That means millions of people are looking for you. No matter what you sell, a good looking website is the perfect way to gain customers.

Gadgets and Gizmos of Setting up a Website

Widgets, footers, menus, domains, link-backs… No one is born knowing how to put together a great blog or website. When I set up my site, I needed a lot of help. I watched “how to” videos, and read articles and tried to understand it all. I didn’t understand any of it. Once a friend helped me set it all up, I was able to learn from there. Now I can create whole sites that are interesting and fun to read.

To Blog or Not to Blog

You don’t have to include a blog, but creating one doesn’t hurt to keep your site active. You can write about anything you want, your product, your services, the weather, your dog, daily life… If you’re an author, you can write about what it’s like to create stories and be sure to use my monthly writing prompts for inspiration. The sky is the limit.

I made my own website. Nothing looked the way I wanted it too. I was lucky to find Sherry. She knew her way around WordPress building my book site, and I spent that precious time building my book — while not breaking my bank. Her step-by-step directions are a big help, and now I can post and move things around myself. She’s always available to answer questions or fix something I mess up.

How to Create Memorable Fictional Characters

1-1Have you heard of Huckleberry Finn? He’s been an unforgettable character since 1884. Memorable characters are what make stories great. They feel like real people, making the reader care about what happens to them.

You can have an engaging plot, cool stuff that happens, and tons of conflict, but if you don’t have a great character the readers can care about, your story is lacking. Love them or hate them, readers want to care about your characters. Continue reading “How to Create Memorable Fictional Characters”

POINT OF VIEW

Whose Head Are We In?

Every story is told from a point of view. Who is telling the story? Which head is the reader in when they read the story? That’s the character point of view (POV). You can tell the story from one character’s head, more than one character, or the all-knowing, all-seeing hovering head.

No need for complication, no need to stress. All you have to do is decide who is going to tell the story, and then maintain that POV to the end. Easy peasy, right? Continue reading “POINT OF VIEW”

social media
