Welcome!

The 21st Century Housewife

Welcome to the new and improved The 21st Century Housewife website! Come on in and make yourself at home.

I want to thank Kohler Created for designing and building the new site and for my lovely new logo. My posts are all categorized so they are much easier to find, and there’s a search feature as well. This new format will allow me to continue to include all the things you love, as well as some new features I am looking forward to sharing with you.

There was only one issue that we simply could not get around. Redirects from posts on the old site can only go directly to the home page of this site. So, if you click on a post I have linked to a blog hop, it will go to my home page instead of linking directly to my post. If you have very kindly linked to a post of mine from the old site, this link too will go straight to the new home page. I am really sorry about this, but sadly there was no way around it.

Another note, posts on this blog only go back to March 2011. I’ve been blogging here for over ten years, and going back any further than that was simply too big and costly a project to take on.

There may be a few teething problems over the next few days, so please do bear with us as we work out the kinks and wait for those funny little Google ‘Bots to find and index the site.

I am thrilled to finally be able to receive your comments here on the site. As a little welcome and thank you, everyone who comments on this post will be entered into a draw to win a $50 (or £40) Amazon gift certificate. The winner will be notified by email on Monday morning EST.

Once again, a very warm welcome, and thank you all so much for your wonderful support.
