The story of how they came about, why I made them:

When I started revising the draft of my novel Strayborn, I wanted a cool widget that would show my writing progress on the sidebar of my website . I went on a search, but everything that was pretty, or cool, and had special features, used Javascript or some other thing that WordPress.com doesn’t allow. In the end, what I did find was a simple one color bar that showed percentages, and after a while, it stopped working. My frustration flared.

I got to thinking how I could make my own progress bar, and so instead of using fancy code, I just made a series of images that together made up a full bar. I uploaded the final 11 images into my site’s Media, and now I just click on whichever image represents my current % progress and upload it as an “image widget” on the sidebar. Presto! Done!

Right away, people started emailing me about where I’d gotten the cool progress bar on my site, and that’s when it hit me that I could help out other WordPress.com users who are looking for cooler, better progress bars! And that’s what I did:

I created several of these progress bars, available now on Etsy, that you can use on any website (including WordPress.com woot!) to showcase your project’s progress with all your friends and followers on your site. Whether you’re a reader showing how far along  in a book you are, or a writer showing your writing progress, or a blogger who wants to show the progress of your current goal!
