I hope you are all as flexible as I am, and I don’t mean physically I mean mentally. With autumn upon us, I felt it was time to do some redecorating around Cate’s Book Nut Hut, and this will mean change.
In some things, particularly when it comes to my books, I like them to be in a certain order and ‘catalogued’ in a way where others may get lost looking for something but I can go straight to it. I think the Book Nut Hut is beginning to head down this alley, as after looking at it on a different computer, and heck even a different operating system to my own, I realised there needs to be changes. I don’t want my ‘readers’ to get lost in its digital annals only for me to discover their skeletons propped up against a meta-tag somewhere down the road. Don’t worry though, the changes won’t take place over night, like everything else that is worth doing well, it will come into being in a slow and deliberate manner.
The first of these changes has already taken place, some of you may (or may not) have noticed that it is no longer catesbooknuthut.wordpress.com but just catesbooknuthut.com. If you have the WordPress link in your bookmarks, there is no need to change this, as you will be automatically redirected to the dot-com site. Other changes that will be taking place are the redesigning and wording of some of the pages (review and ratings guideline being one of them,) and page titles in the hopes of making ‘The Hut’ easier to find your way around.
‘The Hut’ also now has its own Facebook page, www.facebook.com/CatesBookNutHut. Here you can find links to some of the Authors already reviewed on the site, such as Heidi Peltier and Lee Foust, and there will be ‘bookish’ items and trivia posted here on a regular basis.
Another big change coming up shortly; one I’m really excited about and hope you will be too, will be the inclusion of a podcast. This is currently being worked on by myself and © Altered Reality Productions, and will be called ‘The Acorn’ as Cate’s Book Nut Hut is a mouthful to say at any time of the day. The podcast will have its own page on the site where you will be able to listen to ‘chapters’ (after all this is a book podcast), and links to iTunes where free subscription will be available for those who want to make sure they don’t miss out. ‘The Acorn’ will also feature Author interviews, and I already have some lined up, along with other goodies to keep the bibliophile in all of us happy.
There will most likely be other little changes as I progress through my housecleaning, but for now these are the major big ones that I wanted to let you know about. So, as the saying goes…….
