I’ve been a little busy in the past few weeks, mainly preparing for the epic pizza class that I helped teach last week, but also with some other life projects. I’ve been on a completely different fitness plan, so I’ve been getting accustomed to that as well. And the next several weeks are going to be just as busy, with lots of preparing for my next Italian Comfort Foods class next week (still a few seats left!), a trip to Puerto Rico (SPRANG BREAK!!!), and some other small things. There’s a good chance posts will become a little more sporadic; I’ll do my best.
While all this was going on, the blog quietly migrated onto a new host. Hopefully, this host outperforms the last host, which was getting buggy toward the end of last year. MetalFrog dealt with that whole migration, because all this stuff is foreign to me. He’s also been helping me out with a few updates that are visual and hopefully more noticeable to you.
The big thing you’ll notice is that we’ve changed from white text on a black background to black text on a light background. If you subscribe using an RSS reader, you probably don’t notice, but those who visit the site everyday will have a bit of an easier time reading posts. A piece of feedback many have shared is that the way the text was proved difficult to read, and I’ve been pretty stubborn about the fact that I’ve wanted the blog to be different from everything else out there, so this is a pretty big change for me. You’ll notice we kept the integrity of the top of the page, leaving you with a new twist on the classic look.
The other significant change is the addition of a “Recent Comments” section to the sidebar on the right. People have complained that they have to click through each post repeatedly in order to see new comments, so this feature will allow you to visit the main page and see what new comments there are.
I’m always open to feedback, so if there’s something you want to see or something you think I should change, let me know.
And by golly, keep the Brilliant Bites nominations coming! I have a handful of great ones coming real soon!
