Crack the champagne. Open the box of chockies. I’ve done it. Finally.
When I left Walker – more than a year ago! – I made a long list of all the things I was going to do, now that I was going to have all this extra time on my hands. (About four+ extra hours each day, in fact, because I no longer needed to commute all the way into Newtown.)
Very close to the top of that list (after SMELL THE ROSES and TAKE MANY LONG WALKS) was BUILD A NEW WEBSITE and BLOG REGULARLY. It turned out that even though I was working from home, I was still super busy and I barely had time to smell a single rose or go for many long walks, let alone think about blogging or website building. (This all came as a huge surprise to me.)
A year on, and I have finally got to point four and five on my when-I-am-freelancing to-do list and – ta-da! – here it is. My new website and my first blog post. (Hopefully the first of many posts, posted on, at the very least, a semi-regular basis.)
I think it is a little late for roses, but it is definitely time to go on a long walk and enjoy the autumn sunshine and bask in the miracle of actually finding time for websites and blogs.
Huzzah and congrats! The new site looks shiny and fabulous. Sue. I hope you get to smell some flowers soon!
Thanks, Meg! It was so much fun making it. Now I need to get back to that WIP. And perhaps smell the flowers outside the fruit shop!
Love the new site! Very inviting and easy on they eye.
I wish I were brave enough to follow in your footsteps. As you say not too much time to smell the roses. You’ll have to keep a couple of petals in your pocket to remind you of the big picture. Happy writing!
Thanks, Georgie! I love the idea of keeping some petals in my pocket. And you, my friend, are one of the bravest people I know. You do so many amazing things. Thanks for taking a look and having a read and commenting.
Tons of congrats, Sue! The site looks wonderful. I heartily hope your work will go well onward. Best wishes, kind regards, Sadami Konchi
Thanks, Sadami. Really appreciate your comments. All the best with your work too.
This piece of writing is in fact a nice one it assists new web people, who are wishing for blogging.
Thanks! Blogging is fun – but so hard to blog regularly. Good luck!
Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello. Yes, I am using WordPress and if you keep it simple, you don’t need to do any coding. It is pretty simple to navigate. Good luck.
Thank you for another informative site. The place else may I am getting that type of info written in such an ideal method? I have a undertaking that I am simply now running on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such info.
Thanks! I am glad that you found it informative. Other Australian author sites such as Sandy Fussell’s or Allison Tait’s might be worth taking a look at. All the best!
Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
Hi there. Haven’t had any problems my end, and not aware of anyone else having difficulties. Hope the problem resolves itself.
