I was so flattered by the Chocolate Disorder shout-out by Estelle Tracy in this recently published interview by Captain of Goods. Thanks Estelle, you’re awesome. Readers, be sure to check out Estelle’s blog, 37 Chocolates. It’s one of my favorites for candid reviews of chocolate bars, interviews with chocolate makers and more.
You may have noticed that I’ve updated the name of this site.
Why? Truthfully, I changed the name because I was tired of having a long wordpress domain name that nobody would ever remember. And the shorter version of my old domain name, intemper.com, was already taken.
Also, whether or not it’s true, I’ve heard that search engines favor blogs with domain names that explain what they’re about. So I wanted my new domain name to include the word chocolate.
But why Chocolate Disorder? Well, I thought the name reflected the somewhat obsessive nature of my preoccupation with chocolate. And it’s a bit tongue in cheek, not meant to be taken TOO seriously — just like the blog.
Also, as you may have guessed, I’m pretty sure I have one. A chocolate disorder, that is. And if you’ve read this far, you probably do too. 😛
