Kitchen Counter Economics Rotating Header Image

New and Improved! Now with White Wall Tires and Electric Windows!

In honor of the New Year, Aunt Toby’s one year “blog-iversary”, and the fact that we had to update the software, I asked our super-duper Web Mistress (aka “Queen of the HTML”) to add a new feature to help readers find what they want more readily.

First: If you look at the top of the page, above the header, you will now see a row of tabs. Although every post we’ve ever done here will not necessarily be found under one of those tabs, those are the major topics and the most popular ones. Readers will still be able to search on a word in the search box or by tags, but we feel this will help readers find what they want in a more direct way.

Second: If Aunt Toby has any resolution about the kitchen for this year, it is to make it as useful to readers as she can. And to do that, we will be doing a survey sometime soon so that all of you who visit can tell us what you’d like to see more of; what you find especially useful (and what doesn’t work for you whatsoever). So, stay tuned for that.

Third: Earlier this month, KCE’s page views reached 30,000. That’s in less than a year. I’d like to thank everyone and anyone who stopped by, read something, commented (or not), and visited us. When we started this site, we had no idea where it was going to go, what we’d write about, or if anyone was actually going to visit. We’ve had readers from as far away as Japan, Africa, Indonesia, Australia, Norway, and South America. A lot of our readers are from the United States, Canada, and Western Europe. All of you, wherever you are – thank you so much. We want to make the kitchen an even more useful and welcoming place this year and with the survey, we hope to hear from you soon.

Many hugs and kisses from Chez Siberia (and by the way, it was minus 9 degrees F. this morning when we got up. But by the afternoon, it got to 27, which means (cue triumphant music) spring is coming). Hang in there.

Until the next time.
