A New and Improved Tasty Touring
After what feels like months of planning, I’m so proud to share the new site with you.
Thank you to Leslie Williams, the graphic designer who turned an idea about a greasy spoon 1950s diner into a whimsical visual for the header. I love the old school theme and playful logo.
Tasty Touring is now powered by WordPress instead of Blogspot, allowing me to share information in a more interactive and user-friendly way.
You can now easily:
- Subscribe by e-mail or RSS, become a fan on Facebook and follow on Twitter.
- Browse recommended Austin food-related events.
- Listen to selected archives of Tasty Touring on KGSR.
- Discuss in real-time with threaded replies and comments replies.
- Connect on-the-go — the site is now optimized for the iPhone. Add to your home screen for easy reference.
Tasty Touring includes more social media integration.
It allows you to identify yourself and share your thoughts with friends and followers by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter buttons to sign in before you make your comment.
You can also click the ShareThis button to share a post by e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and other popular online communities.
Click the green tweet button and it will open a Twitter and offer suggested text that you can edit. Click on the number to the left of the tweet button to see who else has retweeted and read what they wrote.
Sign up for a Disqus profile to easily track and manage your comments across the web. This service allows you to connect your Facebook and Twitter identities under a single account. You can also click “like” after a specific comment if you have a Disqus profile.
Looking for something specific? Search by keyword in the navigation bar. You can also browse categories including restaurants, profiles, tasty tuesdays, tours, media, tasty bits, guest bloggers, recipes, travels, and memories.
Adam, my creative and brilliant boyfriend, developed, designed, and tested every detail to make Tasty Touring better than I could have dreamed. He is the yang to my yin and I am so grateful to have him in my life. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes in the wild world of online design and I have gained a deep appreciation for the efforts of the techies and designers who make the web fun and friendly for the rest of us.
Last but not least, this blog wouldn’t exist without you — my friends and family. Thank you for reading, sharing, and tasty touring with me through the years. It has been a pleasure to discover dishes, restaurants, events, local food and more.
Please share your comments, suggestions, and any constructive criticism as you explore the site. Your feedback is truly welcomed and appreciated.Tags: adam, facebook, iPhone, kgsr, leslie williams, twitter, wordpress
