Thanks for the weekly recap of news – I would rather see the “cupcake news” items as they appear here, bundled in a weekly recap. New cupcakes that last for one week maybe not really worthy of their own 10 separate news items, in my humble opinion. That’s more like an Instagram and (for me at least) WDWNT is a serious news site!
IDEA – Maybe a separate instagram or twitter, for treats and merch would work? Or a keyword filter on website to subtract out new treats or new merch posts? Thank you
