Things are Changing

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m doing a few things other than writing these days. Acrylic art. Photography. Having a booth at at the Elk Grove Festival of the Arts at the end of April.

I’ve thought a lot the last couple of years about creating a website to see if I can sell any of the art or photography on-line. But, I’ve been lazy about it. So, while I twiddle my thumbs on the website idea, I thought I’d make some changes to this blog so that it features all three creative avenues I’m pursuing.

Today, I’ve started updating the Pages on this blog (for those unfamiliar with Pages on WordPress, they are the tabs at the top of the blog). First, I consolidated the separate pages for each book into one page titled Books. Next up will be the development of a new page featuring the acrylic art and another one featuring photography.

And posts here will broaden beyond my writing life. Who knows what I’ll have to say about the other things, but I’m going to work on expanding the subject matter and see if I can turn this blog into a way to market some of this stuff.

And ultimately, at some point, I want to change the look of the blog. It’s been like this for a long time. Maybe the look needs to change to.


About kingmidget

About the name. I was the youngest of four. Until I got to kindergarten, I didn't have much to say. All I had to do to get what I wanted was to point, and a sibling, or loving parent, would fulfill my request. As a result, my father coined the nickname -- King Midget. At least that's the way the story goes. I am a father, husband, friend, and lover, writer, runner, pizza maker, baker, and many other things. What I am not is my occupation. It is my job that pays the bills and provides for my family. But, it does not define me.

  1. Hi Mark, creating your own website is a great idea! After totally letting my site go a few years ago, I recently created a new site through Wix. The creative process is not entirely intuitive, but I eventually figured it out, and Wix is far more easily customizable than WordPress. Anyway, I’d love to see some of your art. Definitely post it! -Jessica

  2. Nice! Switching things up can fun. I’m playing around with my WP site as well. It will likely go through some changes throughout the year. I previously had a site I paid for but did absolutely nothing with for years, so I’m using the free blogging version until I’m more sure of what I’m doing and in which direction I want to go. My brother used Squarespace when he was selling his photographs online, fyi. I think he liked it since he recommended it to me years ago. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with yours!
