Finally! That was way more work than I expected…
It wasn’t done by simply exporting the data and importing it again. No, copying every single post, loosing all the formatting, … And it’s been quite a while since I last created and published a website.
Not to forget, all the research in regard to the new data privacy regulations that has triggered the relocation and new start of this blog. What is and what isn’t allowed to integrate? It seems to be changing on a daily basis…
And I’m a little perfectionist, it’s hard for me to say: Yes, I’m content with this and can put this online.
And then the very minute before the go live the big mistake:
Website broken and I didn’t manage to fix it with the back up.
So again everything from the beginning…
But now it’s done, the page is back online; it’s not perfect but it’s online.
The next few days and weeks I will fix a few things and last but not least, I will start to fill it up with posts about our life, tips and information on becoming and being a Single Mom by Choice.
What exactly is new?
Black and White? No, I opt for more colors.
Not too many though. But I personally love the combination of blue and mustard a lot, you will find it in our home as well as in my clothes.
And the elephants, aren’t they cute?
My life as a Single Mom (translation of Mein Leben als Single Mami) was somehow descriptive but I never really liked it . I blamed the sleepless nights, as the first blog was set-up in a cloak and dagger mission. The domain was way to long to type, not really userfriendly.
me & you
our family of two
I couldn’t get that out of my head again after reading it. It was a suggestion from a friend from my Single Mom by Choice support group. Thank you Cindy and thanks to all the others that have provided me with so many cool name suggestions!
How do you like it?
Website available in English
As you can read, I decided to translate my posts and pages into English. For one it’s for my Single Mom by Choice friends that live in the US and have been interested in my blog from day one.
But also because German is not the only language spoken in Switzerland. All the French, Italian and Romansh speaking women should be able to get the information I am or will be providing as well…
Advertising and Cooperations
To finance this website, I will incorporate affiliate links and cooperations. I’m still working on the surrounding conditions and will publish them here as soon as I’ve put these guidelines down in writing.
I know that it’s often not looked at fondly, but I’m a single mom, money is thight and running this website isn’t cheap. I don’t want to give it up though, this blog has really grown on me over the past year. And I still think it’s important that women and general people need to be informed.
I promise though here and now that I will only advertise products and services that I really think are good and that I would buy either for my little mini man or myself.
I’d rather not advertise a product at all than risk your support. And of course I will also mark posts and links that are advertisements and not hide product information in regular posts.
In this short interview you can find more information on how I hope to finance this blog as well as more about me and this blog.
With that I close this first post and am looking forward to this new beginning.
I hope you do as well.
