Websites can be expensive to run, ranging from bandwidth costs to paying writers, and Celiac-Disease.com is no exception. Over the past 8 years, this website has been supported by advertisements and the sponsorship of several gluten-free companies, helping us to keep the virtual lights on.
Unfortunately, the internet landscape has changed quite a bit in those 8 years. People use their social service of choice to get their news, leave their comments, and click their ads. This can be extremely convenient for readers (myself included), but it prevents people from visiting the actual website, leaving comments on articles, and visiting our advertisers. Without that traffic and revenue there is no way to cover the writers payments and operating costs. These past few months we’ve had to make some tough decisions, and after careful consideration, have decided to put the website on hiatus for awhile.
With that said, we’ve got 8 years of articles, guides, and resources that we are very proud of available on our website, and we will do our best to leave them available for as long as possible for the Celiac community. There are also numerous other resources around the Internet that do an excellent job of keeping the Celiac community informed, and I wanted to bring to your attention a few of the most popular ones:
- Celiac Disease Foundation
- Celiac Sprue Foundation
- Celiac Central
- Coeliac (United Kingdom)
- Gluten Intolerance Group
- Gluten-Free Certification
- Gluten-Free Restaurant Finder
- Gluten-Free Grocery Finder
