Learning about websites and more

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately trying to get my website to look the way I want it to look. It’s been a time of trial and tribulation. But I am learning!

As part of the process, I decided to start a subdomain. (Which is a completely new word in my vocabulary.) I called the friendly support people at my web hosting service and they walked me through the process. I decided to set up an editing subdomain and I am now launching a side venture as a copy editor. Copy editing is something I have done for years for free, as a reviewer for scientific journals, as a university instructor commenting on student work, and as a colleague of others who write for various audiences and purposes. Now I hope to make a small business of it. There will be a large learning curve for me on the business end, but that is part of the fun!

And I love, love, love helping people improve all kinds of writing–the only types of written work I will NOT be editing are children’s picture books (There are not enough words to make it cost-effective.) or erotica (This is a genre I do not read.). But other than those, I am open to whatever comes my way.

Check out the website I created for this by clicking on Susan’s Editing Website.
Let me know what you think. I would LOVE to have your comments and suggestions!

Putting this website together gave me a chance to use a different WordPress “theme” than the one used on this site. I like the new one, so far. It is very flexible, and the more I learn about it the more powerful it seems. One day soon I hope to change this site over to the new theme–that may involve taking it down for a day or two. I am still figuring out what the best way to do that will be.

The featured photo in this blog is up for consideration as my new logo picture. What do you think? Like it? Or should I stick with the old one? If I decide to use it, I will add my name, tagline, etc.
