The future plans for Candy Blog:
It is expected that Cybele May will do more factory tours and more nostalgia/history postings. She would like to start a candy bookshelf and share her reviews of books on the topic of candy. She would like to develop a candy wiki and if there is a kind and talented programmer out there who would like to help her out with that, she would be grateful and motivated enough to send you some candy. She is planning on adding some community forums as well, so that conversations about candy can go on outside of the particular postings. She has been uncertain to add them as she knows that an empty forum can be pretty sad and desolate. She has some other fun things that she would love to do as well, like adding polls and maybe some quizzes. She has an interactive timeline in the works as well.
