Here’s a brand new resource to help if you know you need a new (or better) author website, but you don’t know where to begin. This Author Website Starter Kit guides you through the basic decisions you’ll need to make, explains concepts like hosting, domains and platform, and hopefully gets you beyond feeling overwhelmed, to the point where you are ready to take action.
Working through 8 steps, you’ll:
- Identify the key purpose of your website;
- Pause to consider your skills and strengths;
- Choose a website platform;
- Gather your main content;
- …and more.
It contains my tips for whether you should consider designing your own website, or whether you should aim to work with a pro. Depending on your technology skills and time available, I also suggest which website hosts/platforms are worth your consideration.
And the Starter Kit includes a checklist for the content and images you should gather, before design work begins.
