    OHDO is still here, struggling to keep it going but here. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been trying to find an English site for German and other European properties, if anyone can recommend something other than Zoopla, RightMove, feel free to suggest.

      Hello Kelly, thank you so much for all you do. Here are a couple of sites for European old home dreamers:
      Moulin.nl
      My-French-house.com
      Prestige Property Group.uk

    This is really incredible, Kelly! Thank you for sharing. I cannot imagine being able to live in a property that is hundreds of years old and this beautiful! Those bedrooms ALL look so inviting. I could just snuggle in under the covers with a good book!

    If there is a way we, who love your site, can help you out, please post it. I do not know how to share on the site (the exchange, I think you call it?) but would be happy to learn. Thank you for your beautiful site for architectural voyeurs and dreamers alike!
    Best to you.

      It’s mostly time to post homes on OHDO after working on OHD all day. It’s also lack of finding homes in countries other than England, Italy, France, Ireland (these are countries that are super easy to find listings.) I am sure people are wanting to see what it’s like in the rest of Europe!

    Wish it wasn’t so difficult for you to have this site Kelly! If there was something I could do, I would. I do appreciate all you do!

      Thanks CeylaClaire. I probably should have kept international listings on OHD, too much pressure now! lol But at the time I had a helper and it was more manageable, he went back to work so it left me to pick up the things he was able to do to save me time. I’m poor at learning lessons about putting too much on my to-do list. πŸ˜€

    Ohhh, that’s yucky to lose someone you counted on. When I had my big job I had someone in the office that did more than required, and since I was so crazy busy, it made an immense difference. Then one day, poof, it was over.
    Once I get my business up and running I know I’ll need an assistant to help me keep it all straight. Aww, I wish I could be there for you and offer more than empathy.
    But managing to keep a list is helpful, Kelly. I had/have a 1-2-3 list which is actually 3 pages of paper. Top list is for those things that I MUST do in the next 24 hours; Second page is for the next 36 hours, and third page is after 36 hours. It really made my life into a sort of picture that helped sort out the pieces. If I get stuck on whether something should go on page 1, I ask myself, “what’s the worst that could happen if this doesn’t get done in 24 hours?”
    Is it possible to get a techie student to help you for even a few hours a week?
    Well, I’m probably overstaying my welcome (interference) so I’ll quit. πŸ™‚

      No, it’s cool. I hired my sister last year to help with status and price updates but I lost nearly half my ad revenue so had to let her go (my husband helped for free!) Maybe one day, with the help of OHD Supporters, I can hire someone. I’m also severely burned out so after working 9 or 10 hours on OHD I’m ready to call it quits for the day so OHDO gets pushed to the side. I am rearranging some things to leave more posting time on the weekdays so we’ll see how that works out this week. πŸ™‚

    I sure wish I could help too. I’m willing! Have been burned out once & the stress is awful — if you need a break, maybe of a month or something, just to unwind & breathe, take it. Otherwise you’ll wake up one day & think, “I am NOT going to do this anymore.” You may anyway, whatever you do. It would make a great many people very sad (loading a pile of guilt on you, lol!) but isn’t worth what it does to you.

    One reason it’s hard to come up with overseas listings is that many countries don’t have what we know as regular real estate brokerages. Italy, for instance. There’s no central place you can go, online or physically, to see what’s for sale where. A big list of countries present that difficulty. Frustrating.

    Chin up, honey. Feet up too, how about it?

    It would pop right back again. Most regulars would keep checking as long as they knew you were just taking time off.

    The key is to pace yourself so you don’t wake up one morning & know you simply cannot face another day of blogging, period. I’ve been through that & quit something I cared deeply about but simply burned out from the unrelenting stress of it. Never went back, which I regret in one way, but I know the same nutsiness would return right away. Some of the pressure came from me, carrying its worries around — that’s another trick to acquire, doing what you can and mentally letting the undone part go when you walk away from the desk. Takes discipline but as we do it, it becomes easier each time. The feeling of relief is miraculous.
