I’m always one to pass along what I’ve learned, so here is a little tidbit from a guest speaker (Liz Johnson) I heard, yesterday. It is one I am going to try out this week.
Liz stressed the importance of having a website domain name that ends with author, writer, books, or something else that is related to writing.
I had thought about doing this before, but I wasn’t wanting to go through the hassle of having to notify everyone of the change, reprinting my business cards, etc.
However, she said you buy the “new” domain name and then it is linked to your previous domain name so that no matter which one is clicked on, it gets to the right place.
So, my website address is: www.brendapoulos.org. When I purchase www.brendapoulosbooks.org, or www.brendapoulosauthor.org, none of my followers will notice the difference. New friends, however, will have an easier time finding me.
So, if your website address doesn’t end this way, or if you don’t have a domain name, yet, consider a simple addition to make yourself more accessible.

Why something that is related to writing?
My blogs are related to writers/authors. However, let’s say you are a biologist. Then you would add “biologist” at the end of your domain name. Use whatever word qualifies you. Thanks for your comment/question. I am sure it will help others.
