Kathi says the rules of making a website have changed a lot since she created her first website many years ago. Today she talks with author and web designer Angela Sue Garvey about ways authors and communicators can improve their website.

Angela advises us to avoid these five common mistakes:

  1. Poor use of the website landing page.
  2. Filling your page with lots of writing.
  3. Omitting a picture of yourself.
  4. Making the page all about you, instead of making it about your audience.
  5. Social media links that take the viewer away from your website.

Next week Angela will be back to share the final five of the ten most common mistakes people make when designing a website. Be sure to sign up here to be notified when future episodes of the Writing at the Red House podcast are released.
