Many thanks for the nice e-mails complimenting my recent picture-taking. I’ve been putting some effort into it, lately, because I noticed a correlation between the number of comments I get and the presence/perceived quality of the photos. And also whether or not there’s a recipe. But I’m not putting a recipe up everyday, damn it. Half the stuff I cook isn’t good. There, I said it. Happy?
One of you asked if I could give a tutorial on how to use my model of camera. That’s awfully flattering, but no. That would imply that I actually know how to use my own camera, and I still don’t. In fact, my husband recently had to restore the original factory settings to it because I had inadvertently locked in a special mode I invented called Grainy, Dim, and Stupid-Looking. I’m feeling very unmoored without my beloved GDSL, but that seemed to work in my favor for the coastal shots, at least.
Other points of business, I’m now at the domain www.foodonthefood.com because I’m sick of getting lost on the way to my own blog. This is much easier to remember. Plus, this new, cleaner address gives the impression that this site is not an opinion-based collection of musings, but rather serious, objective journalism, which is very important to me.
The new site is supposed to map to the original Typepad address, but I think I did it wrong because now people are reporting trouble with comments, Bloglines, etc. If anyone is having an issue leaving comments, please leave me a comment. That should help. And if anyone has any advice on the correct way to map domains using Namecheap, please speak slowly and use very small words.
