A few months ago, I started a companion blog which I called French Chocolate Kitchen.
My original idea was to create a place to store chocolate recipes and experiment with New Blogger, then known as Beta Blogger or Blogger Beta.
I began using the blog as a repository for anything chocolate that was also posted here. I switched to the new blogger template and began playing around with that, which was scary at first.
New Blogger is easy to use, it turns out. It's not so scary after all. It got a bad rap, for some reason — I think because there were issues in the beta stage.
So of course, New Blogger was intimidating at first.
Now that I've played around with it for a while, I like it.
The upshot is, I'll be changing French Kitchen in America to the new blogger template sometime in the next few weeks. I am pretty sure that means all my carefully entered links will be lost. It will take a while to replace them. So be patient.
If for some reason, your link is lost in the process, let me know. Fortunately, adding links with the New Blogger is very easy and less time consuming.
By the way, if you have any comments on switching to the new template, please post them here.
Meanwhile, please visit French Chocolate Kitchen and tell me about your favorite chocolates nibbles. My favorite combination of chocolate and something else is chocolate and orange. It has been since I was about 5 years old and punching holes in the bottom of chocolates to see what flavor they were (chocolate and raspberry is a good one, too.)
Oh, and one piece of other news: For the first time ever, my humble little blog hit the 200 visitor mark. That's right, FKIA had 215 visitors Friday. Since I haven't done a lot to market this blog, that was good news.
The blog is also coming up on its 200th post. I expect we will reach that milestone by March 15.
You made that possible. Thank you.
