I’ve been out of pocket for a few days. My brother X was out here for the weekend, visiting from across the country, plus I’m busy plugging away at the new blog design. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, at some point in the very near future, What’s Cooking at DD will be changing into a new and improved blog. We have a new name, a new URL, and a new fresh look. I’m also very excited to say that we’ll have a new contributor to the blog, who will share his thoughts on some new topics that we’ll be talking about. I’d share more, but then that would ruin the surprise!
As I start doing the design and layout, I’d love to hear any feedback you all have about our current blog. What things do you like? What things don’t you like? What things do you want to see more of? What do you want to see less of? Anything you’d like to share, we’d love to hear (including constructive criticism.) We want the new blog to be a place that you all will enjoy visiting and reading, so we’ll try to integrate your comments into our new design (assuming they’re feasible and make sense to us ;))
We’re also planning an exciting giveaway for the launch of the new site. The prize is currently being debated, but it’s looking like it’s between $100 to Amazon or a $100 VISA gift card. Which would you prefer? Or would you like to see something else? Another option would be to have multiple prizes. It’s going to be a scavenger hunt type contest (ie. find the post that talks about XYZ) and we could do a $50 prize for the first person to complete, $25 for the second person, and another $25 for a random entrant. These are all just ideas though – nothing is solid and I CAN be swayed to go one way or another.
Anyways, I just wanted to keep you all up-to-date so you know what’s going on and will understand why things slow down on What’s Cooking while we gear up the new blog. Thanks in advance for your patience and I hope you all are as excited as I am!
Peace and Blessings,
