New website, blog, facebook and newsletter pages – all branded. See for yourself!

Branding is beautiful!!
Recently, I decided that I needed to upgrade my image. Not only on my website. I chose to do so throughout all my personal pages. Since I loved the colors and look of my blog template and had difficulty giving it up, I asked Rae (Rae Monet, the webmistress who designed everything) to create all the rest of my sites to be as close as possible.

She did so. And it's Fan-freakin-tastic!!

The new template is similar enough to be recognizable, but now it shows my name along with the title ‘Believe’. BTW I’ve used that as my guide for a number of years. Way before even Justin Bieber and the Canadian Olympics decided the word worked for them. So there!! Yeah!....what a child!

Once Rae got started, I was enthused at how well it all went together. Rather than having my books displayed on both places, there’s a button on my blog that takes followers to my website where the books, not only have their own page all nicely set up with buy-me links, but she arranged them in the specific series. And each has its back-page blurb and an excerpt in case the reader wants to know more about the stories.


On the news page, there’s a couple of free reads in case a person has some time to wile away when they visit.

There’s also a contact page for anyone who wants to find me. I love to get mail so don't hesitate. Most important, there’s a link for fans to sign up for my newsletter which I’m hoping you will do.

To make everything perfect, Rae has given me the same image for my facebook page and my newsletter. And just to be cheeky, I added the same photo for my Google+ page also.

***If you join my mailing list now, you’ll see what I mean when I send out the next one….hint, hint!! :-)))



  1. Expertly done, Mimi! And from you, I'd expect nothing less.
    I'm sure you're proud of all that you've accomplished, but let me just say that I'm very proud of you, too. Proud to have retired early to persue a life-long dream, proud to share your zest for writing , proud to "dig in the dirt" every Spring to be reminded of my "soul's" roots, and above all, proud to be your friend.

  2. Hello meen, I've been following your blog for almost 6 months now without leaving any comment so I decided to quickly say hi today, just so you know you've got a fan somewhere. LOL. Your blog makes sense to me just like http://danieluyi.com, another similarly interesting blog that I'm also a fan of.

    Keep it up.

  3. Hi Flo,
    You continue to make my heart smile with your friendship. Thank you for the lovely comment xoxoxo

  4. Hi Dan,
    Calling me Meem just put you onto my favorite people list. Very few people ever do and the ones who have, are some of my best buddies. Went and visited your blog and felt proud that you spend time on mine.

  5. Smart move, remodeling your websites to be more related to each other! It will assure your readers that they're in the right place because there are many things familiar about each of the websites. That's the right way to go about branding!

  6. Thanks Jessica,
    I'm really glad now that I made the decision. :-)

  7. Awesome Mimi! I love it!

  8. Thanks Tricia. It's like moving into a new home with totally different rooms and furnishings. It's fun...
