You may have noticed, but the entire Apocalypse Writers website has been going through some major changes. As I’ve been talking about in the past week or two, I’ve been thinking about making a move towards making The Writers of the Apocalypse more official and just a very slight bit more professional.
So for starters, the OOAK Leaf store is no more. No one visited it anyway, and I hate wasted memory space. (Old habit from the days of smaller drives.) However, I found myself having to install a brand-new store. I attached it to a publisher imprint name, Wôks Print, and made it the hub of most things publishing. There you will find my books, my husband’s book, and hopefully some books by other people in the future. Step 1 achieved.
Next, I had to revamp the entry portal to this website itself. I could have installed an entire ecommerce solution like so many bigger publishers have done, but if I did that I would have lost a lot of things I worked to build over the years including this blog. So for now, the portal is old-fashioned html. I tried to make it look nice, at least? I invite you to take a look at it and tell me what you think.
Then I had to go through my databases and decide what stayed and what went away. I chose to close my music blog. Music is a hobby for me, and I rarely get to do it. (Although I’m working hard towards a change for the better.) Yes, I want to make more music. Yes, I love voice acting and want to go back to it. No, I’m too busy trying to survive at this time.
I’m not going to give music and voice acting up. Ever. So I merged that blog with this one. Those of you who never knew I did these things can now find the rare voice activity easily.
Last but not least, this blog needed my attention. It’s been a long while since I’ve done any major website management, so it was long overdue. The new theme is based on the old theme I had for the voice blog with a tiny foxy touch. I almost went with a Halloween theme, but decided against it. I’m good with this for now.
I think I’m done revamping this website. I hope you like it, and that it’s easier to navigate. If I start getting overwhelmed with spam through the contact portal again I’ll have to take it back down. But we’ll see how things go.
Onward and upward.
