When it comes to websites, all the experts will tell you Content is King.  We know that here at Housewives of Abu Dhabi.  We are so fortunate to have had such talented people who have contributed to our site and those that still do.  (Much love for our monthly contributors!) Thankfully at one point or another, these women offered their help, and we gladly accepted.  Each time filling in the gaps in our content that were wide open.  Personally, receiving that post in our inbox often gave us that little push that we needed to keep going. These women inspire and motivate us. Big hugs and kisses to each and everyone one of you. THANK YOU
