I really enjoyed these tips for building a writer’s website. I was pleased to find that my website passes the “no cheese” list. Feel free to check it out after you view Kerry Lonsdale’s list:

Cheesy websites. You know the ones I’m referring to. The music that launches the moment you land on the site. (I’m listening to Mumford & Sons on Pandora.

(Thank you for pointing the camera downward so I wouldn’t have to look up your nostrils.) The content loaded with fonts all shapes, sizes, and colors. (Too distracting and confusing. Sorry, you just lost me. I’ve left your site.)
