WAIT! You’re at the right blog. Really, you are!
Man, I am not good at discreetness but this time I have managed to do it!!! I worked on this whole blog re-design (with the help of an indefatigable web designer) and did not breathe a word of it. Whew! I thought I was going to explode.
THIS is the gift I mentioned yesterday on Facebook. It’s been a long time coming but I wanted to take a moment to address a few questions you might have.
Why the change?
Several reasons, but chief among them is that Bariatric Foodie and Pouch Party needed to get a divorce. They’ve outgrown one another. As foodies of different surgery types join in the fun, I recognize we don’t all see ourselves as having a pouch. However, we are all Bariatric patients so it makes more sense to be Bariatric Foodie, not Pouch Party.
So what happens to Pouch Party?
We send it on a nice cruise around the world where it will drink sugar-free, protein enhanced mojitos and be fanned by buff cabana boys. Wave to it as it sails away!
So no more parties????
Of course there will still be parties! I’m open to suggestions of what they should be called. Some friends have suggested “Foodie Feasts” and “Foodie Festivals.” I’m still open. But there will be parties and other special events. They will no longer be Pouch Parties, though.
So why is there still a Pouch Party Facebook Page and Twitter?
I’m glad you asked that. You are so clever! With the liberation of Bariatric Foodie comes a new era for our little community. Bariatric Foodie now has its own Facebook and Twitter pages. BF also has a YouTube Channel but there’s nothing on it yet (the videos I’ve done so far will be coming soon and I hope to do more videos soon). We also have a Pinterest account. Pam hipped me to Pinterest and I think it’ll be a fun place to muse on foods to re-mix, the environments we eat our food in and much, much more!
At any rate, I would encourage you to head on over and like the Bariatric Foodie Facebook page and follow Bariatric Foodie on Twitter. I’m going to leave the Pouch Party page and Twitter up for a while to direct folks to the right place but as of September 1st, I will no longer post new content on the Pouch Party Facebook page or Twitter. So you’ll want to get all switched over.
If you get BF by RSS Feed or by email, you don’t need to do anything. You’ll continue to receive it.
Who made this wonderful design?
