Important Update for Casual Kitchen Readers

An earlier version of this post contained an error: the upcoming Casual Kitchen Giveaway will be Sunday, August 2nd, not the 8th). My apologies for any confusion!
The next several weeks should be an exciting time here. I've got a lot of things planned for Casual Kitchen, including a redesign of the site, some really good content queued up and ready to go (if I do say so myself), and a really juicy giveaway (tune in for that on Sunday, August 2nd).

Regarding my site redesign, I've been extremely fortunate to work with CPSCreative to design and implement Casual Kitchen's new look, a redesign that quite frankly was overdue and badly needed, especially considering CK's growing audience. I've already seen the preliminaries and I really think you'll love how it looks.

On top of that, I've launched an entirely new blog! It's a blog on writing: how to write well, how to write more efficiently, and how to make the most of the time you have to write. It's called Quick Writing Tips, and all of the content is in the form of extremely brief, twice-a-week posts that you'll be able to read in just a few minutes each.

Writing is one of the great loves of my life, and after spending some twenty years writing on subjects ranging from English literature to technology to stock market investing, I finally felt like I'd amassed enough truly useful insights on the discipline of writing itself to share them in blog format. Please stop by, have a look around, and add Quick Writing Tips to your RSS feedreader!

And to anticipate your next question, don't worry! I'll still be writing for Casual Kitchen just like always.

Thank you, as always, for reading. I hope you enjoy the upcoming changes here at CK as much as I'm looking forward to them!

Dan, how exciting! I can't wait to see your new look and I'm looking forward to reading your new writing tips blog. What a great idea!

I'm just starting the process of my own much needed redesign as well. Face-lifts for everyone! LOL
