After two years of the same look, it’s time for a bit of a makeover. This is gradually being applied between now and 1 January 2017, so in the meantime, my apologies if this site looks a bit of a mess.
ClogWatch.org was launched as a Posterous blog in 2013, then moved to WordPress when Posterous ceased to exist. It is a website in English, collating news, links, music, literature and anything else from the Netherlands and Belgium that may be of interest to an audience outside of those countries.
Londonforcloggies.com is a website in Dutch that started in 2014 as a Facebook note in response to frequent inquiries from Dutch family and friends who were planning trips to London and asked for advice on where to stay, what to do, and so on and so forth.
As I’ve run both sites as ‘hobby projects’ so far, the time I’ve been able to spend on them has been (too) limited. They depend on spare time, of which I’ve had very little these past couple of years. Both ClogWatch.org and Londonforcloggies.com are currently hosted on WordPress.com, with affiliate links to cover some of the cost; ideally I would like to attract enough advertisers to move both sites to WordPress.org (which would allow for more advertising and sponsored content) so I can afford to spend more time to maintain and update them.
If you would be interested in becoming an advertiser on either site, for instance if you manage a venue, event or service in London that may be of interest to Dutch and Flemish visitors, or if you have something in Belgium or the Netherlands that you think might be of interest to an audience outside of those countries, do get in touch via the contact page.
