Baby All Growed Up! Announcing the Launch of ErikaNapoletano.com

Erika InkOn occasion, I’m asked what the over/under is on when I’ll drop the first f-bomb when I’m at a speaking engagement. For the record, Las Vegas sports books generally set the line at 3 minutes, but I digress. But I kinda don’t.

With two books coming out and more speaking engagements rolling in, it was decided not long ago that I needed a “me” website – something away from the grab-your-nads-and-make-you-sing-Yankee-Doodle-Dandy nature of RedheadWriting.com. Thusly, I am somewhat self-conscious to announce the launch of ErikaNapoletano.com, in all it’s vain and f-bomb-free glory.

*Insert shouts of “look at me! look at me” here*

Special thanks goes out to Darren Mahuron, my fabulous photographer who somehow always finds a way of making me look better than I really do, for the wonderfully “me” shots you’ll see on the site. As well, Courtney Hebert of JudithShakes Design returns as the web designer (she also did RedheadWriting.com). I owe her a huge thanks for working through a more challenging design and helping make it the best it can be.

So…yeah. Ummm, go stare at me. Or something. And there’s a special section for you — people reading this post — on the page called The Blog. Thank you for you — you’re the only reason I get to do shit like this and not look like a complete self-absorbed caricature of Kathy Griffin rolled-up in a $39/night hotel bedspread tripping balls on meth.

And enjoy that visual.

Well, for now, it is knowledge bombs. It's a static website -- no blog element -- so whatcha see is whatcha get!

Congratulations! LOVE IT! Really looking forward to the Book(s) too! Especially the case studies about entrepreneurial companies. Another great site I'll be recommending to my 15 yr. old daughter (a kick-ass kid if I do say so myself!). I value women who use their voices!

The new website is incredible! I love the design. It's all slick with its swishing around the page. I think it could do with a newsletter sign-up, for people to keep up with your author-side!

Awww... aren't you good lookin' and stuff. :) Great stuff Erika, and great site design.   "All Growed Up"?  Nah, I think you were there already.

Cool site design, but it doesn't have a home button.  Are those out of style?  Or am I just an idiot who could find it?

You really wouldn't be much of a branding guru if you didn't smack us in the face with your own promo site, now would you? Site design fab!

Congrats to you Erika. I just look at this as more of you to love in cyberspace. Now I can finally show my mom who you are without her reading your material and raising an eyebrow to ask if I remember that I was raised in a Catholic household.

"So…yeah. Ummm, go stare at me...look like a complete self-absorbed caricature of Kathy Griffin rolled-up in a $39/night hotel bedspread tripping balls on meth."  Aaaaaand, this is why we read.  Oh, yeah, and the site looks freaking awsometastic as all hell.  Congratulations.

Wow! The new design Courtney put together for you is (pardon my hijacking of your vernacular) OSSUM! I'll certainly enjoy the new F-Bomb free site provided it doesn't hold back with the hard-knocks analysis of business and life. As always I'll be gettin' my daily dose of hedgehog here on RedHead...but now I'll have some material I can share with people that doesn't get tagged NSFW.

I think it was a great move creating a personal website. It looks great, too! Kudos on all your success! Going to go pre-order a copy of your book now. :)
