Interesting title, yes? You might be wondering why I’ve posted a wonky warning today. I am simply anticipating what may happen to this blog. Let me explain.
The Relaunch of booksandsuch.com
Our newly revised website goes live today. We’re calling it a “soft” launch, meaning we’re not going to announce it widely in case things go sideways– you know, wonky. But if you are a regular follower of our blog, and if things go as planned, you will already notice the different look. It’s only part of the website revamp.
Of course, you may have tried to log on to get the blog and a message popped up to tell you we are offline or the server is down. Wonky stuff. That’s because the old website has to be taken down before the new website goes up, so we’ll go dark for a few hours. Of course, if you’ve tried to connect and can’t, this explanation will not be any help, right?
We’ve all experienced wonky technical issues. I got a frantic text last week from one of my clients. She’s in the last few days of her deadline and has been pushing so hard, she hasn’t taken time to save everything to the cloud or to a different hard drive. (Don’t ever do this!) She opened her computer and got a message that she’d had a fatal error and that she needed to call a certain number in the next thirty minutes for help. I can’t remember if she called the number or not (it’s a scam, folks) but she was wise enough to call Apple directly. They explained the scam to her and reassured her that her files were not corrupted. But that kind of wonky has happened to many a writer, especially in the rush to finish a book.
If our comments section works (no guarantees, friends) share with us the wonky technical glitches you’ve experienced. And if the website happens to go up– after all, we have a topnotch web designer– let us know what you think of the new look and the new content.
And blessings to you this Advent season.
