Where is BiteClub?

Lots of love to Biteclubbers

So many folks have been asking about the quiet hiatus of BiteClub the last month. Here’s the deal:

Don’t worry, Biteclub isn’t dead. Just taking a quick beauty nap.

Asks one reader: “Been missing yr blog in the PD online, even b4 the ugly new format — where r u??”

Uh, working as the lead on the ugly new format. (Which obvious I don’t think is ugly!)

After nearly 8 years, it was time for a new Press Democrat. Change is hard, but I’m proud of the work we put into the site and its better functionality. For the next week or so I have to put all my efforts into making that experience as positive as possible for readers — fixing things here and there.

It’s been murder seeing friends and BiteClubbers in the real world who are missing our conversations about the food scene.  I miss them too.

So I thank you for your patience and support as I do double duty on many fronts at the paper.

I desperately miss doing what I love so much, but hope BiteClub will be all the fresher and better when I return in a few weeks.

xoxoxox,
Heather

    First of all I think the new site format looks sharp and performs well overall, good job! It’s quite a large undertaking and the rollout seems to be going quite smoothly.

    My only gripe is I dearly want you to bring back the “view single page” option for news articles. Please?

    And very happy to hear BiteClub will return soon, you’ve been missed.

      View single page has returned! We heard a lot of folks asking for that.

    By the way, the main feed from the Press Democrat is showing up as No Longer Available in the Yahoo aggregator

    Glad to know it’s temporary! Kudos for the new site, it’s much cleaner/easier to view and looks great.
