Cheap Eats at Bloglander

[ Currently Eating: Broken Permalinks ]

Ugh. Sorry for everyone who’s been getting either a blank page, or being redirected to the home page when viewing the Cheap Eats site. I had a bit of a problem with a failed WordPress upgrade, which left files out here and there. I fixed that after some grief last week, but neglected to re-do the permalinks – so everything was redirecting to the main page! I only discovered that this morning and fixed it.

I’m not very familiar with how search engines take that kind of mistake – a week’s worth of redirecting all indexed pages to the home page. But, I guess we’ll see how it goes. Supposedly, a website like ours that’s been up and running for 5 plus years should have some sort of “forgiveness” factor for major screwups like that. But we’ll see – if it turns out the site goes back down to very low traffic, I guess I’ll revisit the concerns from my previous post.

OK, go back to your lunch of bologna on bread…

Also – sorry this post was so serious and contained no inflammatory puns, science fiction wankling or Vonnegut/PKD inside jokes. I will try to make up for it in the next post.

    Found your blog while looking for a vanilla syrup recipe, so I could make my high school senior son the drink that his favorite indie artist, Lights, had twittered about getting and enjoying from Tim Horton’s.

    I’m amused. I like what I’ve seen here so far. I’m a foodie, but I’m pragmatic about it, and I can’t stand the snobbery. For instance, referring to your comments on coffee in the vanilla syrup post, I much prefer black coffee, and I honestly believe the best coffee is a fresh, correctly made cup of McDonald’s coffee. The chances of getting the perfect cup are good during the breakfast crush but dwindle to about 33% the rest of the day–depending on the “traffic” at any given McDonald’s.

    I’ve recently discovered David Foster Wallace, and this blog channels a bit of . . . something. The word play and the irony I guess or, as another commenter put it, the “bentness”

    Hoping the Muses deign to bless you.
