PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Thanksgiving.com, presented by online media and publishing company Grateful Ventures, launched its new look offering readers fresh holiday-themed content in an updated, user-friendly layout. As part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, Grateful Ventures creates lifestyle content and monetization strategies for high-influence food and cooking websites and bloggers.
The new site includes an ultimate guide to the holidays with high-quality content focused on holiday histories and fun facts, humor, recipes, how-to’s, crafts, cooking tricks and tips and more. This content will be published throughout the month of November.
The founders of Grateful Ventures want to celebrate the holiday spirit not just at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but year-round. Grateful therefore will be creating content for the holidays to follow, transforming Thanksgiving.com into the top destination for all holiday and inspirational lifestyle content throughout the year.
“Our goal is to celebrate food, friends, family and gratitude all year long and to deliver a top-notch experience for our visitors, so they’ll come back to us as their preferred destination for everything related to the holidays,” said Kyle Cox, co-founder of Grateful Ventures. “The new site layout delivers truly visually engaging content that makes planning for the holiday season more enjoyable.”
“Thanksgiving.com is a great complement to the host of sites producing unique and engaging holiday content across the NETWORK,” said Maribel Wadsworth, president, USA TODAY NETWORK. “Well known for its original recipes, crafts, holiday traditions and more, the team at Thanksgiving.com is best positioned to make sure consumers are getting the seasonal content they crave.”
Content published on Thanksgiving.com is produced by Grateful Ventures’ editors and writers, with curated pieces from its blogger network, Food Blog Stars. All recipes are kitchen tested and approved by the team and its panel of tasters. In addition, the group recently hosted the “Ultimate Thanksgiving” video shoot at its Phoenix location. The shoot captured, developed, and created new content and articles focused on hosting.
