Time for some cleaning

Time for some cleaning

Did you know that I started this website in 2014? Did you also know, that it was time for some cleaning? Something I didn’t do before.

De Goede Huisvader was the platform that I started in 2014. The goal was to write about my life as a stay-at-home-dad who is also self-employed. That was six years ago. Many things changed, including the layout and styling of the website. I created different blogs as a sort of spin-offs. But I always returned to this website.

It does take some time to clean up a website that dates back six years ago. You didn’t see the strange things I saw, so it was time to do this. But where to start? Yes, I could again use another layout and then things would be ready. That would be cosmetic and nothing more.

It took a few days before I was finished. I created some new categories and dropped some old categories. I also merged categories that would allow this. All manual labour. Time well spent though.

All-in-One WP Migration and WordPress

With the help of the WordPress plugin All-in-One WP Migration, I moved the data from one server (my test location) to the other (this website). I use this plugin often. It’s a very good tool if the two locations are different (different names). With a paid extension, you can migrate as much data as you like. The free version has its limits.

Yes, I use WordPress for this website. Just like most of the other websites I create or use. WordPress is free, but there are some paid extensions or themes.

Now it’s just back to business as usual. But, apart from this article, what is a good subject to write about? It seems like I’ve been stuck in a writers’ block mode for the last few weeks. Writing seems very difficult these days.

Let’s hope that all of this will help me to write more!
