Lettuce Eat Kale Has a New Home

in food flotsam & jetsam


Welcome to the new home of Lettuce Eat Kale.

As with any move, there are a few annoying administrative details that require action:

  • If you normally subscribe to this blog via email, you’ll need to sign up again. Ditto if you receive LEK posts through your RSS feed. Please take a minute now to do that. Click on those handy dandy little buttons in the sidebar on the right for that very purpose. If you haven’t taken either of these steps in the past, I recommend you pick one of these options now so you don’t miss a post.
  • Not yet following my pithy snippets on Twitter (and why not)?  Please click to follow my tweets for bite-sized info on food subjects and stories.

This move was a long-time coming. Change is hard. Lettuce Eat Kale was perfectly at home over at WordPress.com for its first year. But it was time to enjoy the benefits that come with a blog’s own URL and do some sprucing up both in the front and back of the house.

For behind-the-scenes assistance, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Stephanie Stiavetti, a self-described freelance food & lifestyle maven. Stephanie also knows loads about all that techno stuff — with acronyms like HTML and SEO — that I barely have a handle on. She was not phased that the actual blog migration, planned in advance for last weekend, was in progress while I was in the E.R. (Post-op infection, highly unrecommended:(  This WordPress wiz just went about the business of shifting everything, we texted between treatments, and she even offered to swing by with something appetizing and edible, which the hospital couldn’t provide. Cheers, Steph.

Thanks as well to my friend Felicity Crush for her fresh take on my blog banner — along with all manner of kindnesses, especially over the past month. She tells me that astrologically-speaking I’ve chosen an auspicious day to launch a revamped LEK, since there’s a new moon in Aries. Who knew my timing was so good?

Some tweaks still to come before we’re comfortably settled in this space.  I’ve been warned that techno glitches following a blog shift, like post-operative infections, are a common occurrence. So please let me know if you have any challenges navigating the site. And thanks, in advance, for your patience as we clean the house of any bugs.

Finally, I have to ask: What do you think? Chime in with your thoughts on the new digs.

I hope it was just an oversight and not a conscious decision, but would you please publish the full post in the rss feed?

Hi Steph,

Thanks for the heads up, I wasn’t aware of this glitch. I’ll alert the techno whiz on the team and see if we can’t get this sorted pronto. Anyone else have the same problem?

It’s a very soothing space with lovely colors. Makes me feel asparagus-sy good. And you get an A+ for legibility. : ) Congrats!

So, have you heard of eatmorekale.com? I saw the sticker on someone’s laptop the other day — a catchy little graphic with a message I can go for.

Looking forward to many, many more posts. I especially enjoy reading about your your family and friends. I feel like I know them!!

Did I ever mention that crispy kale and dutch baby are regular parts of my life now?

You did, I’m glad, though you remind me it’s been a while since I slipped in a recipe.

Gotta go get me one of those stickers.
