Hello and welcome to my shiny new website.
Back in the day, I was actually relatively quick – for a late adapter - to have a website, as my first (and only other) one was hosted by the American Author’s Guild which has a series of templates any ninny can select and then hey presto! You’re on-line.
It was pretty basic - sort of website-by-numbers - but quite suited to someone who would still be working on an old Olympic typewriter if she could find one.
However, despite its simplicity, I could never remember quite how to work it, so didn’t update it as often as I wanted to, and for a while there I couldn’t even remember the password to get into the jolly thing.
Posting photos was quite laborious and at one stage I changed credit cards and inadvertently stopped paying my bill, reminders of which went into my junk file, and I was none the wiser until I went to find myself one day and I was not there.
(If you’ve read SCREW YOU DOLORES you will know that I rate finding yourself and it’s a subject I’m further delving into in HEAVENLY HIRANI’S SCHOOL OF LAUGHING YOGA, which comes out on November 7.)
Since I had that first website the world has changed enormously. Blogs are everywhere, mine in particular - literally. At one stage I had three, in different places, none of which I could easily get my hands on and eventually, such was my confusion that I was writing blogs on a piece of paper and posting them on the fridge where only I could see them, because at least I could manage that.
Then, after years of resisting Facebook I joined it, my posts now get Tweeted, I Instagram occasionally and it’s no wonder I’m confused about where everything is and how, but a girl has to get with the programme and if it’s written in a different language, she needs help.
Which is why I have been working with a lovely young designer called Alicia Morley who understands this new modern world far better than I and who has cleverly been able to bring everything together under one roof, so to speak, and here we are right now at sarah-katelynch.com.
You can check out my travel stories, buy books, ask questions or just look at the pictures.
And I promise to update my blog more often now that I could find it in the dark blind drunk with only one eye open so if you’re a Sarah-Kate Lynch fan, you’ll join me here whenever you feel like it. There’s so much to see and read and I hope you love it as much as I do.
