I used to spend hours on jkrowling.com: searching for clues, reading extra tid-bits from the wizarding world and not forgetting taking part in the W.OM.B.A.T. All of that came to an end at when the site was changed to a more simplistic site. Luckily for us, the site has been updated again and now has similarities to the original, although in my opinion it’s missing the original cosy feel that I used to get from the the original. It’s a step in the right direction though.
A few years ago I resurrected JKR.com, but I didn’t feel the same connection to the new design and it showed, because I hardly ever wrote anything for it.
So I decided to start over. I wanted to bring my website back to what it used to be: something real and personal. This is a faithful representation of my writing desk, except that I haven’t put on the bits of stale popcorn and biscuit crumbs that usually litter the surface. Everything looks a bit tidier and cleaner than it really is, but after all, it’s only polite to make an effort for guests. The various objects littered around really do live in my writing room; some of them have sentimental value, some are practical and others have found their way in via friends and family members.
What this means for fans of J.K Rowling is the promise of new content such as the debunking of rumours through the use of the debunking button, one element that has returned from her original site. I’m thoroughly looking forward to seeing additional information posted on jkrowling.com.
