Our New Look

Anne here. As many of you have already noticed, we're making a few small changes to the WordWench blog, leading up to our 10th anniversary celebrations.
The most obvious is the gorgeous new banner, designed by wench Andrea/Cara, in consultation with us all. We love it — what do you think? BlogPic

Last year, our long-time blogmistress Sherrie retired to spend more time with her beloved animals and work on her own creative projects, and we thank her for all the hard work and enjoyment. The lovely Melissa Beverley (Jo's daughter-in-law) has been managing the blog for some time, and is now feeding in the website changes in increments, as and when her energetic toddler allows it. Melissa's photo has just gone up on the sidebar. We're still experimenting with small and subtle changes (like the new border color) so keep your eyes peeled and let us know how you like it.

Mary Jo will be launching our 10th anniversary celebrations this coming week — stay tuned. We'll be interspersing new posts with posts from some guest authors, and a few golden oldie posts from the past. And there will be giveaways.

  1. Thanks, Beth — as I said, theres still more to do. Were still cleaning up and refreshing the site and the sidebar content.
    But with eight of us, each small decision takes a while. 😉

  6. I love the image in your new header. It is so perfect for readers and writers lost in a story. I also like the border colour. It reminds me of parchment and all things peaceful.

  11. Great new look — clean and clear. Very attractive. Love the colours. Love the banner and the top-left image too but have to say that we’ve already used the same image on LibertaBooks.com. We didn’t crib it from Wenches, honest! Like you, we paid for it. And it’s still a great image. (Sophie used it in her Dear Editor, Please Note blog earlier this month.)
    I imagine you have to be careful making changes to a much-loved site like this. It’s so easy for things to go wrong, as I discovered last night with our Poll That Didn’t Work (but it does now, I’m glad to say). Phew!

  16. I, too, love the new look. (I tend to resist changes for a moment or two; this won me over after the short, first resistance).

  21. Congratulations! Felicidades! Mazel tov! Whatever the language (and the Wenches are experts in their use of language to evoke, to describe, to entertain) I want to thank you all for the books and the blogs. I look forward to more of both (not to mention next week’s giveaways).
