Okay, so I've been saying for years now that I need to get a professional website for my writing. I'm not a web designer by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm a big-time do-it-yourselfer. If I don't know how to do something, I want to learn. I read a bit about it, and then I dive in headfirst. That doesn't always provide me with the best results, but it does teach me a lot and keeps my mind fresh. If I go to a restaurant and like a dish, I go home and try to recreate it. If I get my hair cut and I hate it, I break out the scissors at home. If my clothing needs a nip or tuck to hang better, out come the needle and thread. I just like to do things myself and I like to have them done my way. My most common refrain is, "I bet I can do that." Don't know where such cheeky chutzpah comes from (I'm guessing from my father), but there it is.

And so, here is my newly created, still-evolving professional website thanks to a couple of looong sessions at GoDaddy.com.

IMHO your website is fantastic. I like your link to your blog, where you can do most of your ongoing writing. My one suggestion - on the "you can contact me at" ... why not change the (at) and the (dot) to their actual characters? People who know websites know what that means. I've seen the (at) and the (dot) elsewhere, but I've never determined why they are expressed that way.

Lovely!!! I love "self-evolving"--great stuff, Mary!

Mike, I think the (at) (dot) is to prevent automatic spam, at least this is what I think.
