After years having my blog Belgian Pearls on the Blogspot blogging platform, I wanted to upgrade the online presence of my blog to a more dynamic website.

A few years ago I received an email from a web organization where I was asked if I was interested in buying the domain name ‘’. Heavens !  I was a bit shocked and upset. That company secured the domain name ‘’ and now tried to make profit of it!

The next day I immediately secured the domain name ‘’.

As all things change and trends move so fast -think about trends in the interior design industry-, I felt it was time to give my blog a new, refreshed look.

After more than 6 years of blogging, I finally decided to bite the bullet and to transfer my blog to its own domain ‘’.

I realized I needed professional help from someone who was aware of the newest web technologies. I contacted webmaster Bart Dedecker of the web developer company Fusion.web and we discussed several options. No much words were needed. Bart immediately understood what I was expecting from him and how I wanted to see the layout of the new Belgian Pearls webpage. Bart is extremely skilled in his job. I would recommend him without reservation. You can contact Bart here :

Thank you Bart for managing the transition process, for your dedication and patience with me!

It’s been a really exciting process for me and I hope you love the new look and feel of it. I am very happy with it and I am delighted to introduce you to the new Belgian Pearls webpage.

A warm welcome to all of you who are following Belgian Pearls since more than 6 years and a warm welcome as well to the new Belgian Pearls’ readers.
