Google Ads on VanEats? All restaurants and food related sites need blogs!

As some of you may or may not know, I have started a weblogging business. However until we get financing of some sort, money is a bit tight.

As a result, I am contemplating putting Google Ads on VanEats in order to raise some money. The ads are unobtrusive I think and are supposed to be topical. In other words they should be food (and hopefully Vancouver related).


Happy 3rd birthday, VanEats!

I forgot to mention last week that June 10, 2003 was the 3rd birthday of VanEats!

We've come a long way since June 10, 2000.

Over 200 recipes.

Over 40 restaurant reviews.

And plenty of great food tips that we've been happy to share and to receive from our readers.

And last but not least, lots of great conversations with our readers about food!

We look forward to many more years of sharing our food discoveries!


Membership-less comments now enabled

We have enabled comments on this site. This means that membership is no longer required to post comments. Hopefully this will result in increased feedback from our readers.

Posting news items and messages (which we still encourage!) still requires a free, painless, and spam-free membership


More RSS Feeds to allow you to subscribe to what you want

I've finally enabled the awesome RSS Plugin for VanEats.

This allows you to fine tune your subscriptions to this site if you are using an RSS reader like NetNewsWire or NewsGator.

Every site should have an RSS file! Frankly, if a site doesn't have an RSS file, then I don't usually read it. Too much manual surfing work! Life's too short! Let the news come to you!

Search Engine finally works!

We finally got the search engine working properly! Before, sometimes it took 2 clicks to get all the valid search results.

Thanks to Erin for sorting this out for us.

If you experience any other problems with the search engine, please email us or let us know.
