Already? Yes! Already! Hungry Onion is one year old! Its today last year the Hungry Onion name was registered and the site opened up shop. The site has already undergone quite a lot of changes. I want to thank all our users for supporting the site and engaging in interesting dialogues about food during the last year! Without our users the site is nothing, really.
You might have noticed that I have been under the radar in the last few months. I have been rather swamped personally and at work during this time so I haven’t surfaced much. While there are pockets of bright spots on the site, we all want more discussions. I’d share with you what I am working on next.
An About Us page- for newbies who hasn’t heard of us and Chowhound, its pretty confusing what exactly we are doing here and what value we are providing for people so this is a quick intro for them.
Droolicious Q&A- someone of you may be familiar with Reddit Ask me Anything. Ours is food specific. Professionals and non-professionals like are welcome. For pros, we want to pick the brains of food writers, chefs, cookbook authors, cookware makers. We discussed this previously now is time to work on this. Separate thread coming.
Press Kit- for the PR people of the pros so they can see what we are about and our activity levels. And once we got some traction on the Q&A and the Event organization (below), start asking food writers to write about us. Free PR is key for more discussions.
Event organization page- ever organized a Chow/ HO-down (dining meetups) before with a bunch of email exchanges? I have recently. Ouch. And once is enough. The page is halfway done but should help more active regions like SF, NJ and Boston, and help set us apart from other sites (and writers to write about us)
Comments welcome. Again thank you all for your support during the first year!!
