Same Name, New Look

photo source: designerspics.com

I learned some new things this weekend!

[ Thanks to the awesome live chat help people at bluehost.com and the many excellent videos and articles about how to do almost anything on wordpress ]

I learned how to point from one site to another, how to export and import files, and how to migrate subscribers as well as a few other things.

[ Did you know you had migrated?  :) ]

I admit that I am quite proud of my non-techy self at the moment because despite a small error that lead to a time-consuming clean-up,

[ I hit the import button too many times and spent hours deleting extra files, comments and pictures ]

it looks like leeniebrown.com is up and ready to roll at least on a basic level.  I will be spending some more time learning the new features and playing with things as time goes by, but for now we are ready to post again.

Aside from the obvious appearance change, there are a couple other changes you might notice. During the shift over of files from the former site, I decided to do some cleaning and some older posts hit the recycling bin.

[ But, I kept a copy of your encouraging comments.  I really do enjoy hearing from my readers. ]

I also know that before this month is out Listen to Your Heart will be published, which means it will have to be removed from this site.  So, I have already eliminated many of the chapters. However, there is a link to where the previous chapters can be read at the beginning of Chapter 12 and there will continue to be a link at the beginning of each chapter until the time comes to publish.

Please be aware that as I play with things and learn how to use new plugins and features, things may shift around. Hopefully, the disruption will be minor and will add to the functionality of the site both for me and for you.

Now, to start working seriously on this week’s posts…all that website work time has put me behind schedule.  First up, what will I post for tomorrow’s Wordless Wednesday and what will happen with Philip and Lucy in this week’s Thursday’s Three Hundred?  Looks like it’s going to be a busy afternoon.

Leenie Brown

Leenie Brown fell in love with Jane Austen's works when she first read Sense and Sensibility followed immediately by Pride and Prejudice in her early teens. As the second of five daughters and an avid reader, she has always loved to see where her imagination takes her and to play with and write about the characters she meets along the way. In 2013, these two loves collided when she stumbled upon the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. A year later, in 2014, she began writing her own Austen-inspired stories and began publishing them in 2015. Leenie lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her two teenage boys and her very own Mr. Brown (a wonderful mix of all the best of Darcy, Bingley and Edmund with healthy dose of the teasing Mr. Tillney and just a dash of the scolding Mr. Knightley).

  1. Great news about the book! I enjoy your work so much, and it will be a joy to have it on my kindle. I just bought the short stories, and will be buying “For Peace Of Mind” with the next paycheck, and “Listen To Your Heart”. Thank you so much for the delightful work you do. We moved this spring and between that and my husband’s illness, things have been really stressful. When I read your stories, they make me happy, and they help me to rediscover the joy that I have been missing. I even started baking again recently, and am trying to teach my conure to say something other than “Kiss me baby!” One thing leads to another, so thank you for helping me to rebuild who I am, one chapter at a time!
