Hello my friends!!!
Oh I know how long ago I announced the new custom blog of mine to you all! It was before the new year's eve! And I know I have been a bit -but just a bit- lazy. But on the other hand things have changed so fast since then. We made a few trips after the new year's party. We moved our house. We had been living on the European bank of Istanbul before we moved to Bostanci, to Anatolian bank of the Bosphorus. It's so funny that we moved back to the house where my childhood passed! My parents were living here. They bought a new house and moved. They offered us to move to their old house which is so near by the coast. It was easy for us to accept their offer! lol
After the move we made some more trips. I will be blogging about these holidays and daily trips in this new term of blogging! So I guess it's time to tell something about the new blog of mine after all my excuses...
The blog design belongs to me and my husband, Feridun. He built the base, and keeps the hosting. I wanted all things to be simple and user friendly. There are just three main categories of my posts.
Food, travel, and journal...
You all know what you will find on the food category. I will be posting about my daily life, or about my literature articles in the journal category. And the newest one is the travel category on which I will be posting about our past and coming holidays, daily trips, special cities of Turkey. I hope you will all enjoy reading those travel notes. This category is empty for now. I didn't want to make you wait till I translate my all travel posts which are also on karafakiden.com to English. So I will announce when I translate each article in time. Also some of the old posts are missing yet, I'll add them one by one soon.
You can see these three main categories' menu bar just left hand belove the header image (which I design, like it?).On top of the header there is one more menu bar which leads you to the main page, my short bio, and contact information.
There is another category menu on the right hand of the page as you see. When you click on a category name it shows you the subcategories. It will be easier to read related posts. On top of this subcategory menu, you can see the subscription box. You can recieve updates via e-mail by writing your e-mail address in that box and sending it. Under these, there are FoodBuzz widget, recent comments widget, and the list of the websites I love & often visit.
I must say that comments in this blog are under moderation again. However you will not be asked to type any captcha codes. Just your name, e-mail, and web site url (if you have). I check comments everyday as long as I'm not on holiday. So don't worry about your comments. They all going to be published quickly.
I didn't realize that I missed blogging and talking to you that much!!!
I want to thank to all my friends who never stopped sending me messages, asking about how I am and when Be Foodie will be on again. I wouldn't be able to do much without your support!
Hmm... I guess we need a celebration for the brand new blog! I'll soon be posting new recipes, travel notes, but let's share a news now:
Re-building Be Foodie is not the only thing I and Feridun have done by now...
