A Dedicated Website

Okay, so I haven't had a dedicated website for myself in years. If you typed in elanajohnson.com, the magic monkeys behind the Interwebz would redirect you to...this blog!

But, over the past couple of weeks, I've decided to buy web hosting and make some websites. This is mostly because I have two personas now, and I'm publishing a lot of books, and I feel like I need a more permanent landing page for my fans.

While I was doing all that (which is actually kind of fun for my right and left brains!), I contemplated what to do with this blog.

See, I've been here for years. Eight to be exact. I've loved interacting with all of you. I have scads and scads of (I think) helpful articles about publishing, marketing, querying, and yes, losing weight. Ha!

At first, I thought I'd migrate them all over to WordPress, one post at a time. I was actually getting on today to redirect people over to the new blog site!

But I just can't do it. I've loved this little corner of blogdom, and I don't want to leave it. I have neglected it for a few months, but hey, writing and publishing a new book every 11 weeks can cause some virtual neglect.

I am determined to get back to blogging. I love doing it, and I've been learning lots of new things. And I'm going to do it here. I'm just going to link from my new website back to this blog. I think that will actually make things easier, and things won't get lost.

But, if you want to check out my new website, please do! And if you're interested in my adult romances, you'll have to check out Liz Isaacson's website. She's me. But with a different name. :)

What have you been doing this summer? I hope it's been better than building websites while your kids swim with their friends. Just sayin'.

Great websites, Elana, congrats! About a year and a half ago I redid my website to reflect the audiences of my books more. And I have a separate one for my indie romances under Kimberley Montpetit, but I've been wondering about adding a section to the website for that pen name so all my books/names are in one place. . . not sure yet, but meanwhile here's my newly redesigned site if you want to take a peek. www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com

btw: I'm curious as to where the name Liz Isaacson came from! Inquiring minds . . . :-)

Nice site, Elana! And I don't blame you for being reluctant to let go of something that you've enjoyed and has serve you so well over the eight years!
