So I had lunch with Mollie today, and it was great, so much fun, and one of the things we talked about was the jennycrusie.com website. For those of you new-ish to the blog, Mollie is my business partner and also my daughter, who runs her own business keeping authors’ online identities professional and easily accessed.
You can imagine how working with me makes her insane.
I feel my website should be a party. She feels it should be professional, easy to navigate, and above all dedicated to marketing my books. She pointed out today that my site is a nightmare to navigate on mobile devices because of all the nesting tabs. I said, “Is there any way we can move the WiPs to Argh and just put a link on the site, and she said, “YES!”
Then she said, “We’ll move the essays and the Everything Else and the . . .”
All of which is to say that a whole lot of content is going to disappear from the website and end up over here. She’ll run the website like the professional she is, and I’ll get to be as random and impulsive as I want over here.
Which means that my questions about organizing the website will, in the future, be about organizing Argh, which is already sprained from the hack.
And that means that this is a good time to weigh in on what drives you crazy about trying to get around here, what you’d like to see, and how you’d like to see it. There’s nothing about Argh that’s professonal, not that many people know we’re here since I never promote the blog (don’t need to, no advertising so the clicks don’t matter here). It’s just us.
Meanwhile, now that I’m home I’m going back to my demons.
