My Writing Journey

Author Website Updated and Re-Vamped

I just spent hours updating and re-vamping my author website on Wix. You can visit it here:


I was just informed by Wix that they are raising the annual price of my website by a whopping $100.00. I had thought of upgrading my blog to a WordPress website, but I’ve talked to too many people who have had problems with their WordPress websites. I’ve seen some people leave WordPress because of it. So, I will keep my WordPress blog and promote my Wix website separately. I’d rather pay a little more for reliability. Plus, Wix is user-friendly.

Thanks for visiting!

    I like WP. I do not like their penchant for “improving” the site without notice. Nor do I find their statistics reliable at all; what they offer is misleading at best. I used to have a WP business account. Frankly is was not worth it. Only on one other site at a premium rate, but left it because administrators refused to control the children who joined the site and promptly made it a laughingstock. Best of luck with your efforts wherever you focus. I’d miss you if you left WP so I’m glad you’re staying.

  3. That certainly was a lot of work for all of those links. Looks good girlfriend. I agree with your decision to have a blog separately from your website. I have done that for the past 20 years and it just makes good market branding sense. Bravo Dawn! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Continue to gain your momentum my dear. Enjoy the rest of your day! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜

    Wow! I didnโ€™t know you had a Wix site too. I tried Wix a couple of years ago, and didnโ€™t have a good experience. Iโ€™m glad youโ€™ve found the experience beneficial. ๐Ÿ™‚
