For the past few weeks, my fearless website designer Raphael Brion has been slaving away trying to make this site look even better. And, if you look up, look down, look left, look right, I think you’ll have to agree: Raphael hit this one out of the park. My blog was the dowdy girl with glasses at the beginning of a makeover movie; and now it’s Olivia Newton John at the end of “Grease.” What exactly did he change? What’s different? Let me break it all down for you.
A wonderful thing has happened. The Six Apart Team has benevolently upgraded me from dusty old Movable Type 3 to sparkling new Movable Type 4. What does this mean for you?
It means that, at long last, you can have user profiles! That’s right. Right now, in the comments of this post, you can register an account–post a picture, link up your Twitter, your Facebook, and your very own blog. I’ve always been curious about my readers: who are they, what do they do, and–most importantly–how sexually attractive do I find them? Now my wish has come true!
So please, by all means, let’s test this baby out. In the comments, sign up for an account and fill out your profiles. Pretty soon we’ll have an Amateur Gourmet community to rival all other food communities in cyberspace. This is going to be really rad.
So thanks Six Apart Team! You guys are the best.
P.S. This new comment system will work for this post and all future posts but not, alas, on old posts. That may be fixed in the future, so stay tuned for that.
P.P.S. In case you register and then you’re like, “What should I write in the comments?” why don’t you tell us other changes you’d like to see on the site. It’s our job to serve YOU.
