It’s been accomplished: Your new manduca-blog, available just for you and from today on, is online. We’ve designed and coded and been all around really busy – and now that we’re done, we’re totally over the moon and cannot wait to present our new blog to the world. We hope you’ll come to like it as much as we do!
Time to say good-bye, old blog!
With the birth of our new baby, the era of blog.manduca.de comes to an end. It’ll retire now that our new blog is at the ready, all young, dynamic and highly motivated to bring you the latest manduca news. However, since the old blog has been a dependable companion, here are a few last impressions of ‘the old days’:
manduca-blog – bigger, better, blue!
Our new blog is bigger! Find a general overview on the start-up page, click through to a separate page for every article, find interesting posts by category or simply browse around to discover additional info on our patented manduca baby carrier.
Our new blog is state-of-the-art! Nuisol, our partner in web technology, have made it possible. Most importantly, the design is now responsive, meaning you can get your manduca fix anywhere – be it a smart phone, tablet or your good old 19” screen. Oh, and thanks to proper social media integration, it’s now much easier to interact with us personally!
We’ve decided to keep things separate: This blog is run exclusively in English – you can find its German twin here. Which means no more having to scroll past many, many German posts if you don’t understand any German.
New manduca-blog – new features!
Discover the new features: Get an overview of the most recent posts on the main site. If one of them tickles your interest, click to continue reading. When you’re done, find more other content by category (Highlights, manduca guidebook, stories, events, and miscellany).
Are you looking for a specific post or topic? Not a problem! Apart from categories, topics are also indexed in the tag cloud and posts are archived in the sidebar. This way, you’ll find what you’re looking for in a jiffy.
Of course, we offer an RSS feed (way up on the right, next to the search bar) and you may also subscribe to our posts by e-mail (down below, near the comment function). So there’s really no excuse not to stay up-to-date! Here’s what it looks like:

By the way, this is us…
Hi, we’re the authors: Now you can see our individual posts and contact info on the manduca-blog team page. Our signature photo is also under every post so you always know who of us wrote it – in this case, me:
As you can see, we’ve left a blank instead of adding a fourth picture. That’s because we don’t know what you look like yet… Yes! We’d love to have you as a guest blogger if your subject and post are a good fit. Just send us an e-mail.
We also love hearing about your own blog if it mentions manduca, babywearing, kids, or any related subject. And whether you’re looking for closer co-operation, would like us to repost your writing (or repost ours), or just want to let us know about you so we can link to you – give us a head’s up!
And now, let’s celebrate with a sweepstake!
Of course, after the launch of this blog, a little celebration is in order, isn’t it? And what would be better suited than a raffle, sweepstake, tombola, contest… you get the idea. After all, we just got an awesome new toy, so don’t you think you should have the chance to win one, too?
The sweepstake be on within the next few days, so check back! If you don’t want to miss it, why not subscribe to our posts by e-mail or add us to your feed reader?
Enjoy our blog!
