your online source for all things Simone

This weekend, Simone-Simons.Net reached 500,000 unique visitors and 20,000,000 page views !

It’s incredible, and I have no words to express how grateful I am for all your visits, likes and comments. I still remember when I created Simone-Simons.Net (as a tumblr sideblog called Smoon Daily) back in 2015 to share my love for Simone and Epica, and to meet other fans like you.

4 years, 300 pages, 30,000 photos and 120 videos later, the site almost looks like this dream I had in mind, a huge place by a fan, for the fans. I put my heart and soul into every update I made, spent hours on my computer and phone, even late at night after work, read all your comments and tried to reply, met wonderful people… and even though I sometimes was too busy to update, I never wanted to give up the site or close it ! In September, the site will celebrate its 4th anniversary. Here’s to many more years of fun ! Thank you so much !

Simone congratulated us on Twitter for the milestone !

My goal for October was to revamp our media center to add new functionalities (like and share videos, see related files, browse by popular tag etc.), add more videos and check all the old ones to remove broken links. There are almost 150 videos now and of course more are coming soon ! It took all my free time but I’m very proud of what the media center looks like, and I hope you will like it too.

As you can see, I also changed the layout for something darker, because dark layouts are perfect for fall/winter !

(The only problem is that a lot of the permalinks in the media center were changed in the process, so I need some time to fix the press and career section now… and the style section is coming soon ! Thank you for your patience !)

Hello everybody ! The site is back after a well-deserved holiday break in August.

Epica is scheduled to play one last show on the 8th of September at Havirovske Slavnosti (Czech Republic) before a very long break to rest and write the 8th album. It doesn’t mean the site won’t be updated while Epica is on hiatus, I intend to use this time to add more pictures and pages (including the “style” page I’ve been working on since… forever), and revamp/complete the media center.
