And we’re back!

Spread the love

So, wow it’s been a little while, hasn’t it… I was having so much trouble even just accessing this site while it was still hosted on the previous server that I gave up even trying to post anything for the last week or so. But everything has been migrated over to the new hosting company and from what I’ve seen so far, the difference is amazing. No down time – and everything is running so much more smoothly and loading much faster than before. I think I’m going to like it here.  🙂

I have a lot of reviews in the hopper to bring to you starting today, as well as a little bit of re-vamping based on some of the things I was talking about in my last post. Over the next month or so I’m going to be phasing in more ‘personal’ types of posts here along with the reviews and giveaways – you should see more content in general. Please feel free to respond and leave comments on any of the posts – I welcome the opportunity to interact and get to know all of you better over here! I will be trying to respond back to comments on non-giveaway posts as much as I can as well.

The first post you’ll see after this one will be the second week of posting a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ over here. For the moment though, the pictures I’ll be posting will be kind of a sneak peek into an upcoming review, but with a twist. I take a lot of photos of the products that we review over here and for one reason or another, not all of them make it into the actual reviews. It may be that some of the photos aren’t just ‘quite right’ or sometimes I simply took more photos than I can use. The Wordless Wednesday Sneak Peek posts are going to show you some of the ‘outtake’ photos that likely won’t get used in an actual review.

Another change – at least for the moment – is that since this site is now hosted on a Linux-based server instead of Windows-based, and the scripts that run the awesome automated contest listings that my husband created for me are mostly written in ASP (which only runs on Windows), for the short-term, the contest listings are down. I’m trying to figure out if it’s possible to simply leave the ASP scripts over on the previous Windows-based server and just call them from over here but that’s something that I’m going to need my husband to help me with. And then hopefully at some point we can re-write them in PHP instead, but that’s a ways down the road. I’ll have the contest listings back up and running as soon as I possibly can, so please bear with me until then. Right now the form-based submission is down, but you can still send me listings via e-mail at contests@momstakeonthings.com and I will try to get a Contest Round-Up posted this weekend.

It’s good to be back!  🙂
