Spring cleaning

Spring cleaningI’ve done a lot of tidying up here at I Was An Expat Wife over the past few days. I wasn’t expecting it to take so long, but I was horrified to discover that about, oh, 90% of my links were dead. (If you clicked and hit a brick wall, I apologize. Please re-click.)

I’ve also updated two posts by adding video:

No Paparazzi Please, We’re Canadian now has a short sample of my daughters’ never-ending photo ops with the Chinese in Beijing. (Unfortunately, I found out the hard way that videotapes probably shouldn’t be stored in a damp garage for 5 years. Who knew?)

What’s in a Name? also has a new addition: a YouTube video about Chinese and English names that don’t translate particularly well.

Now I’m done tinkering for a while.


About Maria

I'm a Canadian repatriate, former expat spouse, mother to two TCKs (and one yellow Lab), mentor to new immigrants, writer, reader, world traveller (grounded for now). I write about expat/repat issues and am still trying to figure out my place in the world.

    So gratifying to do this type of cleaning, isn’t it! I also realized the other day that I had quite a few dead links in the netherworld of my blog and it’s not a happy feeling. I had the exact same problem with articles I’d written and the magazine went and changed their archive structure. There should be a law against that!

  2. I had the very same problem, Maria. On a whim, I started clicking through a few links in the sidebar of my site and realised to my horror that half of them didn’t work. It’s a painstaking process but it feels like you’ve had a good ole declutter once it’s done. I can almost smell the Pine O Cleen over here on I Was An Expat Wife. Looks sparkling.

  3. Oh great. Nothing like setting the bar high for the rest of us. Another item goes on the dreaded ‘to do’ list. Sigh…
