I present; the new whatabouther.nl
Why? My blog is growing, which I feel extremely happy about and I am so grateful. I moved from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, built myself a brand new website and the site is hosted by a server right now, which gives many benefits. What has changed?
First of all: I’m going international. With my foreign adventures and increasing invitations to go abroad for my blog it seems a logical step to start blogging in English as well as Dutch. Foreign readers are able to click the flag on the left side and the whole blog is translated (by myself instead of a machine). The layout has, obviously, completely changed and what I love the most are the larger photos. Especially those in my travel stories. Take a look….how great is that?
I hope the navigation makes sense. The home page (with slider!) indicates all options on the left side. ‘The blog’ are all blog posts in all categories in one page. As a blog is supposed to be.
This is followed by an interactive world map: zoom in and out and find all blogposts on this world map. Secretly I’m a little in love with my world map. Look at it. Loooove.
Easy-to-understand categories below for better search results. Travel is at the top, where it should be. Travel will certainly continue to have focus on my blog, perhaps more than ever. Travel is and remains my passion and my blog is a travel blog. The Travel button is divided into all the places where I’ve been, travel tips and inspiration.
The Hotspots, which is obviously inextricably linked to travel and I will continue blogging about my hotspots. I’m always looking for nice restaurants, fine places to sleep and special shops. I’m on press trips more and more and Travel & Hotspots are my main core on What about her.
Mindstyle: where all my musings are situated. With personal stories about mindstyle, chasing dreams and following hearts. Lifestyle contains topics such as interior, fashion and food. And there is my Diary with personal updates. All these topics can be found at ‘ The blog ‘ page in once, just like the old days.
Still working on it
However, I lost some comments as well as my wordpress- and email followers. I haven’t equipped all posts yet with the new size to photos and headers, but all travel stories and all recent posts from the past two months though. And I have only 37 out of 200 blog posts translated to English, but also here I go over the next few days. There is still work to be done, I just wanted to no more waiting. Excited!
Blogging is and remains my passion and that is the only thing why I blog. I write whenever I feel like it. Daily or even more often than daily, but if not – that should be okay as well.
This should be celebrated, so the next upcoming weeks I have some nice give-away presents for you. I meet more and more fellow bloggers and readers and that is the most beautiful thing there is. I am so grateful All thanks so much!
And and and?
I hope you keep on enjoying and reading my blog and I am very curious what you guys think of my new desgin. Comments, complaints, compliments, tips….Come on, I’m all ears!
