ExpatWoman hosts a wealth of continually updated information, news and services. With two hundred thousand unique visitors - different people - coming to ExpatWoman every month, registering over 4 million page views, we are aware that your interests range, and you're not all looking for the same thing, but we hope we have a good package of services for you all. Here's a quick round up of what we do....
is split into regional sub-sites; currently Abu Dhabi & Al Ain, Dubai & Northern Emirates & Qatar. Whatever you are doing on the site, start by clicking through to your region of interest, either by clicking on the picture icon on the home page or load in your favourites:
That way you will be presented with the right regional frame and menus - features of local interest, local classifieds, local competitions, local events, local job ads etc.
Whenever you access the forum, whichever site you come through, you will be able to read and contribute to any of the boards.
Navigating the Site & Feature Editorial
We upload 100+ features every month, some of which have general appeal and some are focused on specific interest groups such as ‘young mums’ or ‘expats on the move’ or ‘house-hunters’.... Anything of interest to readers in Abu Dhabi, be it local news or generic features pertaining to expat life, will be featured initially from the Home page and thereafter listed in our new News section.
It should be easy for you to find what you’re looking for. If you’re struggling for any reason, contact Admin@ExpatWoman.com
and we’ll help you in any way we can.
Also, if you feel we're missing something, of course drop us a line and we'll look into it for you.
Our very popular forum is split into regional & themed boards. There are additonal regional boards for countries/Emirates for which we currently don't have dedicated sites. The themed boards cover topics with pan-regional appeal with a view to putting you in touch with women with similar interests, and women who can offer advice on those specific topics. Anyone can read the forum but to post a new message or reply, you need to join the site.
Join Our Site
To join the ExpatWoman.com
site simply click on the link at the top of the page and complete the application. Please note we only approve women members. When you sign up, you need to indicate which region(s) is(are) of interest as that will determine which membership list you will join. If you are living in/moving to Qatar, tick Qatar only. If you are undecided and interested at this stage to hear about both say, Dubai & Abu Dhabi, then join both.
As a member of the site you will:
* receive our regional newsletters
* have access to participate in the forum
* be able to enter ExpatWoman competitions, quizzes and challenges
You can manage which list you are on at any time very simply by clicking on your profile. If no list is indicated we default to Dubai. You can of course unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time by clicking through on the unsubscribe link on a mail. Please note that unsubscribing cancels your membership and hence forum & competitions access.
Got something you are looking to buy/sell from/to other expats? Looking for a maid or gardener or have someone you can recommend? You do not need to be a site member to post your classified ads. The Classifieds pages are obviously region-specific so make sure you’re on the right ExpatWoman sub-site; the region you are in is shown top right of every page.
Jobs Ads are added daily to the Dubai site – less frequently for the others but they’re coming through. Keep checking within your regional site and if you wish to advertise a vacancy, email Marcus@ExpatWoman.com
We are given some great stuff to pass on to readers! We strike a balance between making it interesting with a daily quiz, Sudoku challenge.... and making it easy, with many just requiring members to sign up to say they’d like to be entered in the draw! Definitely worth checking out periodically; how many times have we heard “... but I never win anything!”
We always have a list of great Dubai Deals and they’re coming through for the other regions – bear with us; we’re working on it for you! Again, check in from time to time.
We’re sorry we don’t offer an event service outside Dubai but we are very happy to support other groups that do. Check out your region’s What’s On listing for latest news. If you wish to add an event to any of our regional site listings please email Events@ExpatWoman.com
We took a trip down memory lane and added Pacman, Froggit & Tetris to Simon and Sudoko. Don’t forget the Daily Quiz also, in the Competitions section. Something else you’d like to see? Drop us a line at games@ExpatWoman.com.
And just a final word on....
One more reason to access the site functions through the right regional frame – you get to see links to services and offers relevant to where you live.
Occasionally the banners overlap the forum when a message title is too long. When the moderators spot it they edit the title – otherwise, someone please mention to the original poster to do the same.
We love our sponsors as without them, we couldn’t run this site!
