Welcome to the freshly renovated FindingBerlin.com headquarters! We’ve been talking about this for months and finally it’s happened: a new, cleaner and more structured layout. We’re very happy to join the club of sleek and organized websites — it was definitely needed.
When we started our little project almost two years ago, we didn’t really know where it was going. Well, we still don’t know, but like any living organism it grew and it became cluttered and we had to clean up the mess that we made over the time. So this is our second beginning, a bit of a new start that shall motivate us to be as creative and productive as ever. We love sharing our lives in the city with you, we love being able to look back on our time here by simply clicking a few links and scrolling through our history and we want to continue all of that in a more good-looking manner. A special thanks goes out to king-of-all-kings Matthias who built the new site for us in about 50 seconds and who patiently listened to all our contradicting ideas on what it was supposed to look like (I wanted the site to look like the Berghain but they said no).
Most of all though, we want to tell you how much we appreciate your support. Without you, the readers, the commentators (even the hateful ones, you cute little monkeys), the people who like our posts on Facebook and our friends and family we would not have as much fun doing what we do. Granted, it’s not like we just won an Academy Award or something, but we’re still touched and overwhelmed by how many visitors we’ve been able to attract over time. So we’ve prepared a little something something that you might enjoy.
Over the next three days, we want to give you the chance to win some really awesome stuff by some of our best friends from Berlin. Every day — with tomorrow being the first day — we will release a posting with crazy prizes. Every post will have its own rules of participation. Here’s the lineup for this little FindingBerlin Fancy Fresh Fings Festival:
Tuesday: FindingBerlin-Tours -> Click here to participate
FindingBerlin-Tours.com is giving out a free tour through Berlin! See the city from our perspective, discover it in your own time and best of all, ride some of the fanciest bikes ever! You can win 1×2 tour vouchers from FindingBerlin Tours on Tuesday.
Wednesday: Muschi Kreuzberg
The fantastic Muschi Kreuzberg are giving away 5 different versions of their classic snotty Berlin tote bags and two laptop cases! That’s how you front for your Kiez, guys. You can win 5×1 tote bag and 2×1 laptop case on Wednesday.
Thursday: Overkill Shop
Overkill, our favorite sneaker store and graffiti stuff supplier, is killing it with the HOOD PACK that you need to survive in Kreuzberg! You can win 1×1 Hood Pack that includes 1 pair of Nike Air Max of your choice from the store, one Overkill T-Shirt and one marker.
As always, all winners will be chosen randomly and notified by the end of the competitions (we’ll try to let all winners know by next weekend). Thanks to everyone who contributed so far and stay tuned to what we have coming up next.
If you’re in Berlin, we’re also cordially inviting you to come around our little Relaunch Hangout at the Artconnect Headquarters in Berlin-Neukölln. We just wanted to use the occasion to lounge with our friends. There’ll be some drinks, a bit of music and if we can spare the time we might even decorate the walls (but probably not). Check out the deets right here and see you tonight!
