Why the New Year is the Perfect Time for a New Author Website

Yeah, we know, years are basically just arbitrary units of time that we use to measure out our course through a cold and indifferent universe, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t use those arbitrary markers to our advantage. For most people, the New Year is about new beginnings, including a lot of resolutions that don’t usually last through the end of January. But here’s a New Year’s Resolution that you can stick with through the whole year: Make 2017 the year you get that new author website!

While you’re thinking ahead about what’s coming down the pipe for you in 2017, start thinking about launching that new author website, or updating your old one! There are lots of reasons why author websites built using the WordPress engine are great solutions for writers, including greater control and ownership over your content and improved ease of use. In fact, these days WordPress powers roughly 25% of the web, so obviously it’s doing something right.

Here at Clockpunk Studios, we’re big fans of WordPress as a tool for creating great author websites, but we also don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Rather than sticking you with some pre-created template, we custom-tailor every new author website to fit your needs, your personality, and the tone of your book(s).

If you already have an author website, the New Year is a great time to make sure that it’s up-to-date. That means more than just checking all the purchase links to make sure they work, and revising your bibliography so that it includes your latest publications; it also means making sure that your various WordPress plug-ins are updated regularly. Fortunately, we also offer affordable ongoing WordPress support that can help you keep everything running smoothly without a lot of fuss on your part.

So whether you’re launching your first author website, updating an existing one, or just trying to keep on top of all the updates and plug-ins that go into the back end of a highly functional website, Clockpunk Studios has got the know-how and the solutions that you need to improve your web presence in 2017! More than just a web design company, we also offer SEO resources, ghost blogging, and much, much more! Want to kick off the year by taking the next step to a brand new website? Contact us today and we’ll help you get started!
