Catherine, Caffeinated is two years old tomorrow. (Two years! What?) One of the things I wanted to do in 2012 was to really make this blog the hub of all my online activities, draw back from spending too much time anywhere else online and do a bit of blog housekeeping so that everything on here is as organized and pink as it could be. Or as organized as it could be, at least. So over the last couple of days there’s been some changes made around here, and trust me when I say that these changes took at least ten times longer than you’d imagine they would take.
This is a free blog hosted by WordPress.com; the only thing I pay for is the domain, i.e. catherineryanhoward.com. Therefore I don’t have as much freedom as I might like in creating this blog, but with some work arounds you can pretty much find a way to do anything. I think what WP offers for free is just staggering, and we all know how much I love my theme (Bueno, by the way). So some parts aren’t as perfect as they could be, but I think I’ve done a pretty good job for a free blog.
The books main page has been changed, and now my booksites (Mousetrappedbook.com, Backpackedbook.com and Selfprintedbook.com) are just one-page sites that lead you here. Eventually I’ll just redirect the domain here. It’s all part of my masterplan to get everyone to come here.
Each book now has its own page here on Catherine, Caffeinated, and each book has a snazzy PDF preview you can download for free. Oooh and aaah and stuff.
The most popular section of this blog, Self-Printed, has been totally reorganized. I often think of the person looking for self-publishing info who comes here for the first time, and how I can help them find what they need. I think this might make things easier. Woo-hoo!
I added some pictures to the News page and reorganized it by year, making it slightly less BOR-ing. Ta-DAA!
The “About Catherine” page has a slideshow all about coffee. (That’s just for fun.) Yay and stuff.
So do have a look around, and tell me what you think*.
*Only if you think it’s good though, because after spending two days of my life on this I really don’t want to hear anything else!
