When did I make my first website? I can’t remember exactly, it must have been 1995 or 1996. I don’t even remember which hosting providers I had during all those years, but as you can imagine it were quite a few.

To compare web hosting providers I will stick to the 2 I have at the moment: Namecheap and Siterubix. Your first question will probably be, why I have 2? Well, that’s a coincidence. 

My and my husband’s websites were hosted by Namecheap, when I joined the Wealthy Affiliate community. Siterubix is an integral component of Wealthy Affiliate and my new websites are hosted there.

How to Change our Mindset about Money in a Healthy Way?

We probably don’t think much about how our mindset affects our life. We have always thought this way, either as a result of how we were raised or through other circumstances. Yet our mindset in fact does affect our life. By changing how we think we can improve our lives. 

When we rarely feel happy and content and we realize that the reason is that of a negative mindset, it’s time to change to feel better about ourselves and attract more abundance into our life.

The Importance of Life Expectancy for your Unique Personal Situation

The importance of life expectancy for your personal situation

The most interesting question I ever got was “How old are you going to be?”. There had been a vague notion in the back of my head, but until then I had never put an actual number on it.

About Me

Hannie Mommers

Hello! My name is Hannie Mommers and I am so glad to meet you here.

Some people have a bias against aging people that I deeply resent. “Old and worn-out”. Well, I am far from that and I am sure you feel the same way. When they describe this worn-out situation in the Netherlands, where I come from, it says: Oh, that one is only sitting behind the geraniums.
