And… We’re up!
We’re ready to announce to the world in just a few days, but we’d love some friendly people to check out the site and let us know if there are any issues. This is a soft launch, so although the world can now access foodwhirl.com, we’re waiting a few days before we invite them all!
So welcome! Please click around, check out the profiles of our contributors, check out our initial posts, and please go ahead and leave comments or rate the posts (there is a ratings button at the top when you click on the post name–we’d love your initial feedback)…
You can leave input as a comment on posts, or if it’s something more general, just email me at email@example.com.
How can you help launch Foodwhirl? Honestly, the only reason we write this stuff is for people to read it! So we’d love to make a big splash at our official launch (slated for 2/10)… We’d love for you guys to get involved and help spread the word–this isn’t some big corporate undertaking with a marketing budget, we’re just cooks like you :) . Just posting a link to the site (but wait til Wednesday at least please!) on your blog, facebook, twitter, or whatnot would be a big help! We have some nifty buttons too – feel free to grab one.
There’s a bit here now, because we wanted to have some content at launch, but remember, this site is meant to be a dynamic work in process–new stuff all the time–and we’ll be building our database of yummies.
Don’t forget to let us know if you have things we should link to in the future– your own posts elsewhere or cool recipes you’ve seen on the web — use the suggest a site page to let us know. (And if you’re interested in contributing yourself, we’re always looking for interesting guest cooks!)
We’ll also have some community features coming soon after initial launch… I’m still researching the best way to implement them, but we want to give you guys the ability to submit your own meal ideas and recipes, too, to make this an even better resource.
Welcome to our beta test!
We hope you’ll stick around for the real thing!
