It’s New! It’s Improved! It’s Awesome!!!

Welcome, welcome, welcome! I am so, so, SO excited to launch my brand new website — and to be returning to the world of (occasional) blogging! (And not only because the latter gives me one more place to overuse exclamation marks … and maybe emojis! ? )

First, THE WEBSITE!!! If you follow me on Facebook, you may already know what a handy guy my newest son-in-law is. He and my youngest daughter have an apartment in our basement, and he has been incredibly helpful with this year’s Yard Project–as well as with fixing/building/problem-solving a host of other things in and around the house. Well, not only is he Super Handy in the building/maintenance department, he is also a talented web developer … and so I recently did a Very Smart Thing and hired him to build a new site for me.


It is clean. It is easily navigated. It is easy-to-read. And most importantly, he has made updating it the proverbial piece of cake. Which, incidentally, is the highest possible praise coming from someone who has avoided site maintenance like the (also proverbial) plague. Seriously.

He even managed to import my entire blog from my Linda Poitevin site (which has now been merged with this site, because maintaining TWO sites? *laughs hysterically*). And that brings me to the blog topic!

I blogged semi-consistently under my Linda Poitevin name for years (to the tune of more than 600 posts ?), and I loved having the space for sharing the odds and ends in life–things that are too long for Facebook posts and/or that I never seem to have room for in my newsletter, and occasionally little backstories about my writing itself. (Such as: why did I choose the name Harry for the dragon in Crone Unleashed? Look for the answer in a future post! ? )

So … new site! Return to blogging! A place to share stories! And more emojis ? and exclamation marks!!! Does life get any better?! I think not. ?

I hope you’ll take a few moments to poke around and see everything we’ve included for you. All my books are here, along with a sample chapter from each if you’d like to browse those. We also have a link in the menu to my current Redbubble merchandise store where you can find the popular f*ckity Crone Wars mug if you’ve been looking for one of your own. (Heads-up: we’re planning new and exciting things for merchandise — and books!!! — next year, so watch for those, too!)

I would love to know what you think of the site! Is there anything else you’d like to see included? Did you find something that’s not working quite right? (You know I’ll be blaming the tech gnomes for any glitches… ?) Drop a comment below and let me know your thoughts — and thank you SO much for stopping by! ❤

P.S. If you’re poking around in past blog posts, please forgive the weirdly skewed images scattered throughout. The wraparound feature that I used did not translate well to the new format, and … oops. Rest assured new posts will not have that issue.

    Love it. Thanks for making this easy to navigate. You know we elders know a lot but did not grow up in the tech generation.

      I’m so glad you like it! And yes, easy navigation was a must. As was ease of updating, because tech is not this elder’s thing, either, lol.
