Hey CN, just an update. Our new and improved site will debut next weekend, scheduled for Sunday, March 14. I’m told the WordPress core update (headed like a meteor crashing to earth on Monday) shouldn’t whack anything out meanwhile. Fingers crossed…
Here’s what you can look forward to:
A one-stop-shopping Toolkit for Newbies. Know someone who just discovered cheating? There will be a page with all the evergreen posts for what to do and rookie mistakes to avoid.
Mini CN sites in Spanish and French. A HUGE thank you to the volunteer translators of Chump Nation who took this on. You’ve probably noticed all the odd posts in your feed as I’ve published pages. We can keep adding translated content as we get more. If you’d like to translate some posts, email me.
Cheater Song Parodies by UXWorld. Behold the healing powers of snark. UXWorld has compiled all his greatest hits. Hum along to “Triangulation… Is Making Me Waaaaa-it.” The songs will be linked from a Fun and Games page that has all the contests and twisted Valentines too.
Resources — a new and improved list of CN-approved books, that are not the RIC. It’s also built with Amazon affiliate links that will support the site.
The Universal Bullshit Translator. Revealed in cartoon form. If you’ve wanted all the bullshit in one place, you shall have it.
Chump Lady videos. I’ve complied a page that has every video interview of me ever produced. Assuming you want the full dorktacular immersion experience. (It was sobering to realize there’s an entire bootleg youtube universe of me on video. Dear God.)
Chump Lady audio. I sound nothing at all like my audio book. I’ll have a few up on the new site as teasers, but I’m reserving audio content — me reading letters, me reading Trust That They Suck and other classics, me dropping F bombs — for Patreon subscribers. I’ve been promised the new files this week. (It would’ve been sooner, but the producer had a death in the family.)
and finally… I have a new Support the Site page. I’m taking down the wretched BlogHer ads. I’ve hated them for forever. Eventually they may be replaced with a kinder, gentler, less spamtacular ad network, but for the near future, I will be relying on Patreon.
I hate to rattle the tin cup. But stepping outside my comfort zone, I will. Keeping this place alive and improved is a large financial and time commitment. If you can pay it forward in any way, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you.
Here’s the pitch that will be on the new site:
Support the one infidelity resource on the interwebz that is not predicated on reconciliation.
This continuation of this blog is thanks to the support of Chump Nation. Every day, newly minted chumps wash up on our shores. Instead of getting being sold false hope, or blamed for not “meeting the needs” of cheaters, they get compassionate, snarky, straight talk.
We’re here to save others the pain and shorten the learning curve. As I say often, the chump condition is not permanent. It’s situational. Leave a cheater, gain a life.
Why should I send you money?
A) Chump Nation is trying to change a narrative — that infidelity is abuse. Managing a site this large is a huge time commitment and financial expense. Donations support my writing and the IT costs associated with keeping this site humming.
B) It keeps the Universal Bullshit Translator in cookies.
