If you didn’t catch the post on Friday, we’re doing a Subscription Package Giveaway! Enter here!
First, I want to say thank you to each of you for being a part of my life. CTF started in 2005 and we launched the Menu Mailer over five years ago. We are the longest running traditional foods menu subscription service. In that time, many of you have gone from readers to friends.
2011 was an up and down year in our personal and professional lives. CTF went through a lot of growing pains with the release of the blog, the beginning of Nourished Living Network and the flooding of the market with competing menu subscription services. The economic crunch has put a strain on everyone. In the last two years many bloggers put out a competing product in an increasingly smaller and tighter market. Some of them didn’t last long. Creating Menu Mailers consistently, week after week, takes a lot of work and dedication. It’s easy to think something isn’t difficult until you throw your own hat into the arena and find out what the daily grind truly feels like.
I greatly appreciate my loyal readers. Your feedback keeps me turning out new ideas, new recipes, new products. You inspire my creativity. CTF would not be where it is without you. Thank you for your loyalty and your feedback. I appreciate every comment, every e-mail, every question I receive.
I get up every morning and do what I do because you let me know I’m making a difference.
Over Christmas, Jeff and I had some very late nights working on a business and marketing plan for the coming year. I’m very excited for what we have in store for 2012!
2011 was a year of overcoming adversity for us. Our New Year’s Resolution for 2012 can be summed up in one word- THRIVE.
Thrive with new products. We have new product launches lined up monthly for the first five months of the year and we’re making some changes to our current Menu Mailer. I’m VERY excited about some of these products because they are things that no other traditional food company or menu service is offering! Keep an eye out on the blog for some big announcements coming soon, the first one will be tomorrow.
Thrive with the blog. Look for more posts from me, more guest posts, and even posts by new contributors.
Thrive with new photos. We plan for new recipes on the website, more tutorials and a lot more pictures of the food. The tutorials we did in the month of December received positive reviews.
We are launching Facebook Fan of the Month. The winner will have their picture featured on both the blog and on Facebook.
And much more. There are lots of great things coming. I hope you’ll join me and Jeff on this journey.
We’re excited to greet 2012.
