I Exist!

So yeah, that sucked! It’s a VERY long story, but suffice it to say that my husband changed something major on the back end of his professional site (tweedlebop.com), requiring him to change our DNS registration (because the co. we registered with years ago sucked), which made my site not exist. Grump! Unfortunately it’s irreversible, which means here I am at a new domain name (good in the end as I’ve always meant to get my own domain for this site, bad because I can’t put up a redirect from demode.tweedlebop.com). So, the site will now and forever live here at www.demodecouture.com — I promise!

In other news, I’d just started (before all this crisis happened) to reorganize my files behind the scenes here, as they all grew organically and I had huge, unorganized folders that were driving me crazy. Since the site was down, it was a good opportunity to reorganize (and recode – sigh!) many of the pages. This means three important things:

1) Due to the lovely slowness of FTP, it’ll be about another 24 hours before the whole site is here.
2) All of the content that used to be here will still be here, and all the paths to get to that content will be the same.
3) The URLS for MANY of the pages will have changed. So if you’ve got a bookmark or a link to something, please go find the new version of the page and update the URL. A hassle, I know!

    I thought your site was gone forever. I love looking at all the beautiful costumes you’ve made while I gather up the courage to make my own.

    Wonderful that your back online! It was like a friend had gone missing.
    A lot of your pages are really invaluable to me e.g. your ‘real women’s clothing, 1750-1919′ and I was partitularily missing it during the down time.

    Welcome back! I can’t tell you how much I missed you. Had a lovely email exchange with your husband, who was very reassuring.

    Welcome back, you were missed sooo much. I’m redirecting anyone I come across who doesn’t know what happened.

    Oh, I’m so relieved! I thought you’d disappeared into the ether and I was sad. You were missed!

    Oh, I found you, I am so happy! I have your site in my favorites, and one day I clicked on it, and the link was broken! And that was, what, two weeks ago? So I searched on google and the site cam up, but the link was still broken. So then I typed in “kendra demode” which is where I found the new URL! And I am so relieved! And FYI, I went on to ask.com because they have that thing where you can look at the website before you go on it, so I typed in demode.tweedlbop.com, and clicked on the looky tool, and it showed the homepage, but the link was still broken. I just thought that was kind of weird.

    I too must lament how I missed your site. Great to see you back again.
