NutritionFacts.org has been up for about 300 days and gotten about 3 million page views. I'm honored that so many people find my work valuable. That's what keeps me going all those long nights trying (and succeeding!) to fulfill my promise to post a new video every day. I've got some great stuff coming up and I'm excited to share some of the new features so you won't miss a beet!
Those who have registered on the site (subscription is--and always will be--free) will note you now have a whole new menu of options. When you log in and click Account you will now have the option of an expanded profile. You'll see you can now choose to subscribe (or unsubscribe!) to daily emails describing the NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day, or a week-in-review type compilation of new videos and/or blog posts by editing your User Details.
To celebrate the new souped-up subscription service, every week I'm going to offer a random subscriber a free Latest in Nutrition DVD of their choice, so please make sure you're registered. You can then watch the lucky winners roll in on our Facebook page.
It's now also easier than ever to share videos with those you think will benefit the most by clicking the share options below each video on the site. Each subscription email also offers a way to share videos and articles of interest easily by clicking the "Forward to a Friend" link. Many new exciting features are coming to NutritionFacts.org in the near future, including additional enhancements to the community features and additional ways to share and discuss popular topics on the site.
You'll also notice we've started to populate the topic pages with link-rich descriptions to offer some context as to how all the videos on a particular subject fit together. See, for example: Diabetes. We have a great group of volunteers putting these together, but there's still a thousand topics to go! If you're interested in helping out, please email our volunteer coordinator (who herself is a volunteer--thank you Denise!) at: NutritionFactsVolunteers@gmail.com.
Finally, I'm excited to share that NutritionFacts.org is now an official 501c3 nonprofit charity. All donations to NutritionFacts.org are now tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. To donate, big or small, click here. NutritionFacts.org remains the first and only free, non-commercial, science-based site to provide daily video updates on the latest discoveries in nutrition. Please help me spread the word and thank you for your continued interest and support.
