On July 15th, at 3 pm, the countdown clock on this site went to 0 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds and my new website saw the light of the online world.
I was in Japan, it was a hot humid evening and I was pretty exhausted. I was looking forward to the moment when my new site would go online. Since over two years the domain sereymao.com was available to me, but the know-how and the need to make the page “ready” wasn’t there. My online coaching was on a different platform, my model portfolio was there which was practical but otherwise, I haven’t done much online anyway. It would have been a nice-to-have, alongside my studies. As the time passed, however, my need for my own homepage to show my projects or write down my thoughts, was growing.
The people who know more about me, or follow me on social media (especially on Instagram or Youtube), know that I am working on various projects and have not found exactly the one project yet. It’s not too bad and I like to work on different projects at a time. Some projects are more or less demanding so it never gets boring.
The project “my own website” was postponed until after my studies, which was March 2017. Last year, a very special person came into my life, who helped me to continue this project and finally made it complete.
Thanks to MICADO Design for the development and design of this website, thanks to Simon, Maik and Nadja. Thanks especially to Simon for his thoughts and the design and to Maik for the timely and intensive web development, which led to this wonderful result.
I look back at two years full of life and changes, full of learning and making, indulging and thinking, even with loss but above all, full of joy and love.
Despite the fatigue, on that day in Japan, I recorded some Instagram stories and finally laid myself happily into bed.
