The past few weeks have been busy with changes. A big one is that my website has recently undergone a makeover. There’s a fresh design, a new tagline, “Exploring the World of Food, Antiques, and Crafts,“ and a scrollable gallery of some of my photos. I invite you to take a look around and share any comments. Please subscribe and you’ll automatically receive new posts by email. For those who have been following via RSS/Feedburner, note that I’ll be phasing that out soon. If you subscribe by email, you won’t miss out on new content.
Going hand in hand with the website redesign is another big change: a new Facebook page. Many of you have been loyal followers of my Markets of Paris page on Facebook, which I greatly appreciate. I’ve decided to phase out that page and replace it with a different one where I’ll post about Paris and other places that spark my interest. “Like” the new Facebook page so that you continue to receive posts about Paris and elsewhere. For a transition period, I will continue posting in both places. But soon, if you don’t take the step of “liking” the new page, you won’t receive my posts in your Facebook newsfeed. So take a brief moment to “Like” it now.
When I started my website and Facebook page several years ago, I wanted to write about markets in Paris and share what I was discovering there, from the brocantes and antiques to open-air food markets.
It was also a way to spread the word about talks and news related to the publication of The Markets of Paris. Your encouragement has kept me going. The work I’ve done on redesigning the website has helped me appreciate anew how much information it contains. My early posts were exclusively about Paris, although over time they—and I—have expanded to exploring other places and topics related to food and travel.
While I will continue publishing content related to Paris, the tagline “Exploring the World of Food, Antiques, and Crafts” is a way of granting myself permission to write about broader interests too. The changes that I’ve made to my website and on Facebook proclaim this as a deliberate choice and give me a chance to stretch my wings.
Summing up, please subscribe by email (on Home or Contact page) and go to the new Facebook page to “Like” it so that we stay connected. I aim to provide valuable content, and I promise not to overwhelm your inbox.
Thank you in advance for your continued interest and engagement. I look forward to hearing from you and to traveling more roads together. There’s additional big news coming soon, so stay tuned! ~Marjorie
