So, I’ve finally finished updating my new website, and this is it! After two life-changing decisionsmoving to Raleigh in January to return to work at the state Museum of History and deciding to re-establish my editorial services businessseveral lists of chores followed. Getting a website back online was near the top, of course, but it just kept sliding from the top.
Today, however, I am proud to announce that I’ve finished fine-tuning most of the pages and that I feel confident enough to announce they’re ready for review. So, take a tour and let me know if you find any mistakes, major or minor. I still have a couple of pages to post, including a payments page and the “‘instant’ help” page, so you can skip thoseI’ll announce when they are readybut, as they say, have at the rest!
One of the delays in getting a presence back online was the debate over continuing to use an HTML-based website or following the industry and moving to a content management system (CMS). I finally opted to switch and to use WordPress (which I’ve used for years as my blogging platform) for this version of my website. In addition, I decided to promote my blog address, “anEditor’s Blog”, to serve as my home on the web instead of reviving the old “the-freelance-editor” URL I’d been using since the late ’90s. In line with those decisions, I will, however, be keeping my formal business name as the-freelance-editor. Enough change is enough!
Key to the new site are my specialty pages (you can access them with “Why use a freelance editor?” on the main menu bar, above, and then sliding down to “My specialties” and hovering for the page line-up or by using the more-standard menu list at the bottom of the page) (or you can be lazy and simply click the following links) for the so-called divisions of the-freelance-editor: the-blog-editor, the-history-editor, the-young-adult-editor, and the-freelance-ghostwriter. I’ll be adding more detailed sub-pages under them eventually, but these get the point across for now.
I guess the race has begun! Thank you, all, for your patience and continuing support. And, let me hear about those errorsyou know I’d let you know about yours!
