We’ve been developing Chocablog for over six years now and I wanted to let you know about some updates to Chocablog that I hope will make it even more useful and easy to use. I hope you’ll have a browse around the site, use the new features and let us know what you think. I’d also love to hear the kind of features you’d like to see in the future!
Firstly, we have a brand new Chocolate Events section on the site. We want this to become a calendar of all the best chocolate-related events around the world, so if you’re organising something, do let us know about it.
The only rules for events is that they should be open to the public and strongly feature a chocolate theme. You can add your own event directly to the calendar using this submission form, or you can contact us directly if you’d like us to add your event for you.
To keep track of events without having to visit the site every day, you can subscribe in iCal or Google Calendar by adding this URL, and we’ve also got an events RSS feed, so you can subscribe in your favourite RSS reader too.
We’ve completely revamped our Chocolate Recipes section, so now all our recipes are shown in a single place with photos and a description. We’ve got well over 60 recipes now, making this one of the best resources for chocolate recipes on the web.
The design of the site has been tweaked a little to allow us to display a link to the latest post at the very top of every page, along with prominent links to all the social networking sites we’re on. Chocablog is particularly active on Twitter and Facebook, so if you haven’t done so already, please add us there! We’re also now on Pinterest, which we’re still getting the hang of!
And don’t forget, you can get Chocablog by email every day, so you’ll never miss a thing!
If you’ve not had a look around the site for a while, I hope you’ll take a moment to do so and let us know what you think!
