You may be asking why we switched our blog from Blogger to WordPress.  Well the answer is pretty simple….we wanted something that was a bit more interactive.  I want to point out three of the new features on our blog: Twitter, Flickr, and an email sign up feature.  Our Flickr feed allows us to share more pictures with you than we could on our regular blog.  If you click on one of the pictures on the left, it will take you to our Flickr photo stream, where you can see hundreds of our pictures, read our comments about them, and even comment on the pictures yourself.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderinghokies/ If you click on sets, you can see how our pictures are arranged into albums: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderinghokies/sets/ I am going through and adding all of our pictures from 2009 and 2010, so be checking them frequently, as you will be able to see our entire year! 🙂 I just added pictures from Pensacola, where James and I spent the 4th of July last year.  And I promise many more will be added soon!

You’ll also see our Twitter feed below the Flickr feed.  We thought it would be a nice addition, since we don’t always get a chance to update our blog on a regular basis (though this is something we are working on).  Twitter gives us an opportunity to make quick updates to the blog and to share articles we have found interesting.  In 140 words or less, we will give you a brief update on our lives.  We will also follow you if you are on Twitter.  Just let us know by following us (http://twitter.com/wanderinghokies) and we will follow you in return.  If you’d like to receive email updates, just type in your email address in the top left hand corner, and you will receive an email whenever we update the blog.

We hope you enjoy our new site, and that you spend some time getting to know it.  We welcome feedback and comments, so please do not hesitate to let us know what you are thinking!  Thank you for reading!

Love, Angela and James, the WanderingHokies!
