Housekeeping: Pinterest, Facebook & Truncated Posts

I've been doing some stuff behind the scenes here at CFO, and wanted to bring you up to speed on some new features:

  • Chief Family Officer is on Pinterest! Check out the CFO Pinterest page, and let me know what you'd like to see there. I'm trying to be selective about what I pin, so mostly you'll see recipes, plus some how-to tips and activities for the kids.
  • Facebook - Over on the CFO Facebook page, I continue to post updates on what you see here at CFO, as well as time-sensitive offers, deals, coupons, and Swag codes. I've also been known to share drugstore deals that I picked up, and updates on my cooking progress. If there's anything else you'd find helpful over on Facebook, be sure to let me know.
  • Gelson's match ups - You may have already seen these here at CFO, but I'm now offering coupon match ups for upscale Los Angeles market Gelson's. You can find them here, or by using the "Gelson's" tab in the menu at the top of the homepage.
  • Speaking of match ups - I've gotten several requests to shorten the match ups posts, and I try to remember to use the "more" html code so that the full post doesn't show on the homepage. You have to click through to see the entire post, which makes for less scrolling when you visit CFO. However, if there's a way to shorten just those posts for RSS and email readers, without truncating all of the other posts I publish, I can't figure it out. Cutting those posts short in the RSS and email feeds would mean going to a partial feed for all of CFO, and I really don't want to do that. So if anyone knows of a different solution, please share!
