That sounds ominous, but we’re coming up to our 5-year anniversary for this website and it was time for this entire effort to be taken to the next level. It’s been quiet on the blog for the last three months because I’ve been preparing for the launch of our new website coming up on October 31st!
I want to give you a heads up now because while I will try to maintain links, if you have linked to specific blog posts on Your Eatopia then make a note to check those links in early November. You may need to relink to the new URL at that time.
The forums will not change and will still sit behind the one-time $5 fee paywall for access. The searchable References will no longer be active, as references will be embedded in the individual blog posts. Beyond that, what you’ve seen on the site to date will remain in one form or another.
For those of you who have been waiting all of 2016 for the release of the MinnieMaud guidebook, it was delayed as a result of this major website rework. Additionally, it required its own major edits of the earlier chapters. However, it is slated for release in 2017 and I’m excited about how it’s shaping up now with its multiple reworks and edits.
There might be some interrupted service around October 31st and November 1st, so please be patient if you come across glitches during those two days. Also, please don't hold back providing any feedback or input after the 31st when you've had a chance to look around the new website.
In some ways it's unfortunate that this website is still a much-needed resource for so many, but in other ways we've made some progress in helping adults reach remission from a very complex chronic condition. And if the next five years follow on from that progress, then I consider that a success.
The countdown clock to the switch:
