Revitalization of the Baby Hearts Press Website!

Dear Heart Friends:

What is one of the most difficult things to do once a website is created? 

I just thought website creation was difficult. Luckily for me, I had many kind people helping me out with the website creation -- provided I could supply them with content. It was extremely difficult to decide what to put on the website, what to leave out and how to spruce things up. As time went on we played with different kinds and colors of backgrounds, different images and even fun images that spun around or would have some kind of animation.

What was one of the most difficult things to do? Change! It took months of work to built the website in the first place. Why in the world would we want to change things?

Change is inevitable. It seems that once a website is built, it becomes obsolete. It's already time to be thinking about how to improve content, add images and move things around. Websites can become unwieldy because of this need to always change: to add, to improve and to enhance. Then the change deals with new ways to format the website. It seems that websites have a life of their own.

Baby Hearts Press has been going through a lot of changes. Our long-time webmaster and friend, Sue Dove, decided to take a break from working on the website. With her children grown and gone, it was time for her to enjoy a new chapter in her life. Callie Rickard then joined our mission to provide resources to the CHD community and with her came new ideas, new skills and . . . you guessed it -- CHANGE!

Please check out what Callie has done to the Baby Hearts Press website. It now features something new -- an ability to "Take a Peek" inside our books! Some of the books have book trailers -- short videos where you learn more about the book. You can read book reviews and even see the Table of Contents for the books.

Callie also has information about the radio show that is available to inspire and uplift the CHD community. "Heart to Heart with Anna" is hosted by the owner of Baby Hearts Press, Anna Jaworski. The Baby Hearts Press website is a place for people to discover other resources (in various modalities) for the CHD community.

We hope you like the new website! Please share it with others. Please give us feedback, too! We love to know what our readers or listeners think and what they want to know more about.
