How This Site Came About

After the humble pages were initially started on the original Reflecting Pool, they soon grew not only into multiple pages, but into entire sites.

To learn more about the story of how my online world has grown and multiplied, read on…

This whole adventure began on Geocities, which then became Yahoo-Geocities, and now that part of the internet is no more, except in the archives of sites which copied all the content.

No more free websites on Geocities made the end of an era, you might say. Not that I am complaining because they were very good to me over the years with free and very stable hosting. I made a place for the writing and webmastering I had begun there on this new site, Ilona’s Reflecting Pool.

If you could support my internet activities with Amazon purchases through the access from my pages I would appreciate it -I finally made enough to pay for the domain name here as an affiliate, but this could be supported further with help from visitors to the site. I have handpicked Amazon selections to check out. These are chosen to relate to the topics I center on within these pages.

If you would like to read more of the story, the following portion of the post gives a history of how the original Reflecting Pool of Geocities days became a number of different websites.

Visit my garden…

The Garden Pages took on their own domain for some time now (since 2006).

The Childbirth pages are still being incorporated fully into this site. They needed a complete overhaul.

I moved Loving Christmas totally to its own domain,


I have changed many things and they are still evolvinf. Ilona’s Garden Journal, the original blog which I started in order to make notes about my garden and to try out the “new” blogging platform. It is now a self-hosted website, Ilona’s Home and Garden Companion
