Tumblrweed: On restaurant websites

Hot on the heals of this comic from The Oatmeal

Comes this Tumblr “Never said about restaurant websites

Featuring examples like this:

“Good to know that your site is still under construction. I’m also glad you didn’t strain anything trying to publish your phone number along with that critical status update. Baby steps!”

“I think it shows how unique and progressive your restaurant is when you use 90% of the screen area for your theme and ambiance, and 10% for the information I actually came to your site for.”

“Thank you for the looped audio music on your website. It made the time I spent trying to find your phone number and address more bearable and eased my pain when the link to your menu was broken.”

You know what “industry” has worse websites than restaurants? Churches. That’s who. Just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you should.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
