Hi—and welcome to the new LDS Publisher website!
My lovely assistant has combined the LDS Publisher and LDS Fiction blogs into one big site, and given us a template that is ultra-SEO friendly. As a reader, that means you’ll only have to come to one place. Yay!
If you’re an author or publisher whose new releases are featured, or a guest blogger, you’ll get even more attention from the Google. Double-yay!
Most of the new site is functional so take a few minutes to scroll around, click some buttons, kick the tires…
There are still a few things that aren’t quite polished up—when you import 2,412 posts, some things are bound to get messed up. Some of the known glitches are:
- Internal post links: The 2012 posts are cleaned up, but a lot of the older ones will take you back to the old sites. I’ll leave those sites up until everything is cleaned up and smoothed out here.
- Category Labels: Not all of them ported over. Just be aware that much of the menu is linked using category labels so if you click on, say, “Writing Basics” under the LDS Publisher menu tab, not all of the posts will come up. It will take some time to get them all working correctly. However, the search feature (sidebar) on this site is sooo much better than the one I had on Blogger. Type any search term in and you’ll get good results.
- Tags: Blogger didn’t use tags so these will be new. See the Tag Cloud in the sidebar? I’ll use tags as sub-categories, like query or agent or critique. Again, it will take a little time to get it all sorted out.
- Design: Okay. Well, see the pictures at the top of the sidebar? Those will be replaced eventually. And see how the 2012 fiction posts have a little thumbnail image, but the past years don’t? Yep. Working on that too. But we’re going for functionality first.
Anyway, I’m so excited about this site that I wanted to go ahead and unveil it NOW. All new posts will be showing up here from now on.
So, once again, welcome—and let me know what you think.
