Behind the Screens – Part 6March 17th, 2010 by Sara
Well, as of yesterday, I.Q. is officially going to be around for the next two years. Yes dear readers, it was that time of year when I had to renew the domain name. I think it should be seen as a token of continuing enthusiasm and optimism that I opted to claim the domain name as my own for the next two years, instead of for just one year or six months as the other options dictated. I think the biggest test to my commitment will be this next portion of the year, and the start of next year. Granted, I have basically no ‘buffer’ of work left, but the Easter ‘holidays’ are now in sight for me, so I’m hoping to play catch-up then.
The lack of back-up reviews and suchlike doesn’t mean however, that I don’t have any ideas for the site. Certainly not! In fact, I’m lamenting the fact that I don’t have any additional funds to be able to hire a proper web-designer t bring the site up to my visions of it. I’m afraid you will all have to put up with this same old layout for a while longer. Still, they are ideas which will at least remain in the pipeline, regardless. I guess the main thing is regularly updated content…anything else is just bells and whistles.
The continued enthusiasm of both my readers and my writers is rather humbling when I have a moment to think about it. I certainly couldn’t have kept up the site without the kind comments and feedback I’ve received. Mind you, I’d keep the site open and updating even if I only had one regular reader, never mind the 1,000 or so who seem to keep coming back to check on things every month. When I think of everything we’ve managed to do during the past 6 months, I know that I certainly shouldn’t belittle the accomplishment of both myself and everyone else who has been involved.
Like I said, at this stage – for the next couple of weeks, at least – I’m afraid it’s just going to be regular updated with nothing particularly exciting happening. (The determination to actually get some author interviews is increasing exponentionally). Although I will be continuing to work on the ‘A-Z of Literature’ as best as I can.
Until next time!
