The Lone Writer: Rides the Information Superhighway

I decided to blog an introduction to the newly overhauled OCCRWA website. Think of it as a mini-map to your chapter website. What’s new? you ask. Oh grasshopper, you have no idea…

First there is the new look. Whether you loved the black background or not, sometimes you have to shake things up a bit. We decided to stick with the OCC roots of orange and green. There may not be very many orange groves in the OC anymore but we’re sticking with it. Plus, our webdesigner managed to create an amazing fruit crate label for our logo. For more of her work check out

So what have I learned about webdesign? In the future I will make it a point not to ask three Type “A” personality individuals to agree on a site map. (The site map is the layout of the site, it organizes what drop down menu items go with each button). You would have thought we were planning a siege instead of a website. LOL.

Initially I was going to post a page by page summary here, of what is available on the site. Instead, I think it makes more sense for people to click around and see what they discover. The site is a work in progress and we’re still tweaking it but there is no substitute for individual exploration!

Have a lovely day and Happy Birthday to my dear friend Sabrina and (of course) Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I missed the blog originally and Sabrina’s B-Day! Sheesh email a girl, Dana. I love the new OCC look. It is so beautiful and reminds me of home. Makes me want to leave LA and move back to Newport. (Homesick again!) And now back to the joining OCC page.

    Thanks everyone!

    I wish I could take credit for the way the site looks, but alas I have no art skills. (By that I mean, stick figures are an achievement).

    Hooray for experts!
