Have a Verra Merra Holiday

What do you think of my "Half-Elven Home Page" picture?  It arrived in my email this morning, just like a present. ---  There's one more picture to go up, for sure, for this blog, but it may be awhile before it happens.  We'll see.

That's the good news.  The normal mire:  I'm still working on the website ... trying to come up with a way to add new content on a regular basis.  The best idea I've had so far is "Renna's Gossip" about the main characters -- Mariah, Ashton, and Linden.  New content would be easy if I was selling stuff regularly ... but at this point, I'm not.

Next step:  I have to start promoting the site ...  which means adding meta-tags without stuffing keywords in every sentence.

Unless there's some tremendous news ... like maybe Samhain accepting Dark Solstice ...  I won't be blogging until the New Year.  

So, enjoy the holidays ... 
and take the time to watch snowflakes fall, 
walk in fresh snow, or
or day dream to flames dancing on the hearth ... 
or whatever calms the frantic chaos of the season for you.

How about a couple snoozes listening to carols?

Pride Goes Before the Fall

Last week, I worked hard on the Half-Elven site.  My critique session with a professional computer guru gave me all sorts of insights on how to do the keywords.  I had them in the text, but not in the proper search slot.

The new picture of Mariah and Renna came in.  I learned how to cut out thumb-nail pictures and applied them on the website pages.

Oh, I was feeling soooooo good and pleased with myself.  I'd even corrected all the typos I could notice.

Then, I decided to reformat Renna's page so I could have two columns of links to the various "gossip sessions"  since I've given up on full-blown short stories as a way to add new content to the website.

The screaming and gnashing of teeth you heard last Saturday night was me.  I deleted all the the changes I worked so hard on all last week.  I even managed to delete the website page leading into Renna's Half-Elven Tales so I can't find it to restore.  *^#_@%*!!
