Fun Blog Business

Today is a big day for This Week for Dinner!

  1. Recipes finally have a print option! I am SO excited about this. All the recipes now have a pretty little green box around them, and at the end of the box it says “Print This” and, you guessed it, you can click that to easily print the recipe. Yippee! Click here to see a quick example. If you find a recipe on the site missing the fancy new box, shoot me an email and I’ll add it! (Quick note: For the most part, the “Print This” option will NOT include pictures so that we don’t use up all your printer’s ink. There are a few recipes that have the photos inside the green box because they illustrate a step in the recipe – if that’s the case, just know any photos inside the box ARE going to print. This only happens with a handful of recipes and, one day when I have a few free minutes, I’ll come up with a better solution.)
  2. Advertising on This Week for Dinner is bigger and badder than ever. I have finally strategically planned out my ad space, and I signed on with Federated Media to handle my advertising. This may not be all that exciting to you, but it’s super exciting for me. I feel strongly that it’s time for me to take this step, but I also feel strongly that the website needs to stay simple and easy-to-read, with a nice, clean, pleasing-to-the-eye design. I believe we’ve successfully done that. Big thanks to my awesome developer dude Aaron Harp for taking my Illustrator files and making them into wonderful WordPress themes.

Thanks for letting me share the fun changes to the site today. And thanks for reading…I couldn’t do this blog without you!

    LOVE your print option! Fun!

    P.S. I’ve just signed up with Groupon and I love it. It’s saving me half the price on a lot of things we already do!

    Yay for you…and yay for us!!

  3. Awesome printing option, and hooray for Federated Media.

    This is a great idea – I won’t have to use up my Red Sox notepaper anymore to jot down recipes and ideas from your famously famous site! Way to go Jane!
