It’s All Good

A short post to a) Say thanks b) BRAG

First, the thanking.

I find WordPress immensely confusing and non-intuitive. More than once I have ended up banging my head against the e-wall trying to figure out something that, later, turns out to be laughably simple. What WordPress does have going for it is some very helpful and patient folks in their support forum. One of those nice folks helped me out today, while I was in the middle of a full meltdown.

Timethief (assume that’s not his/her real name, duh) is the angel behind the new menu you see up top. Look up, look waaaaaay up. See that On Scribbling tab? Well, that’s where writers, book lovers, and word enthusiasts can go to read all of my literary-ish posts. Over the next few weeks, I’ll have all of my old posts archived in there.

Mr./Ms. Timethief blogs on One Cool Site , which has all kinds of tips for bloggers.

For anyone who, like me, may be having trouble figuring out the whole Custom Menu or Category Pages thing on WordPress.com here is the most excellent link she provided to me: Custom Menus

Now for the BRAG-ing.

Warpworld has been awarded a B.R.A.G Medallion from indieBRAG ! The acronym stands for Book Readers Appreciation Group and the organization is comprised of individuals and groups who want to recognize quality independently published novels.

Our mission is to recognize quality on the part of authors who self-publish both print and digital books.

Josh and I are Snoopy-dance happy about this news. You can find Warpworld on the indieBRAG site under Science Fiction. Here’s our shiny new medallion:

Thanks so much indieBRAG readers!

You can also find Warpworld on my new Custom Menu at the top of the page! (Thanks again, Timethief!)

One more thing.

Okay, I forgot item C, which is the new blogroll I have on lower right. Look down, look waaaaay down. Under “Coconutty good blogs that I read a lot and like and stuff!” you will see some links. These are blogs I actually read and love, not just a list of people I’m promoting. Thanks to my crazy schedule, blog reading is a luxury for me (oh, the irony), so all the blogs on that list are deemed Princess Time Worthy. (Maybe I should create my own medallion?)

It’s a work in progress, so if you don’t see your blog on there, and it’s one I read, don’t despair.

Gotta get back to my “real” work now! Enjoy the New and Constantly Improving Coconut Chronicles. (Thanks again, Timethief!)

Until next time, I hope this finds you healthy, happy & lovin’ life!

The Princess
