Well, what do you think? Welcome to our new website, ilvoloflightcrw.com!!!
That’s right! The Flight Crew is more than a simple blog. We are our own domain with a more traditional web address: ilvoloflightcrw.com.
As Marie has mentioned before, we board members spend a lot of time discussing the site, its day-to-day issues and its future, and it seemed like a perfect time to make this change. We are growing by leaps and bounds. We can be found easily on all the major search engines on the internet, are up to over 100 followers of the blog, nearly 150 followers on twitter and adding more everyday. We finished at number five on the Top Ten Supporters of Il Volo last week (how awesome is that? :D), and when we talked about our ideas about what we wanted to do with the blog…what kinds of upgrades we wanted to make…everything lined up to say it was time.
OK. So, I know everything looks very different, and you might be wondering how this is going to affect the function of the blog. Not much, really. The only difference is that when you come to the site for the first time (specifically if you don’t get e-mail notifications when a new post is published), you will see our new homepage. On the left side of the page are the navigation links to the main parts of the site, and one of the first ones is, “Blog.” Click on it, it will bring you here, and you will be able to read and comment as usual. We’ve also added a “search” feature, so you can do keyword searches of what you’re looking for instead of wandering around trying to find it.
Please spend some time on the homepage and see how you like it. Don’t be afraid to push buttons just to see what happens; that’s what I did when I was “building” it. 😀 Thank you, wordpress.com, for making it so easy! As always, we love to hear your comments!
One thing I would like to say before I leave. My friend, Lisa Brehm, is the wonderful person who provided the beautiful video for us. One of her hobbies is making fan videos of soap operas, and I sent my little project to her–all the way down in Texas–for critiquing and advise. Being the caring person that she is, she offered to spend her own time and use her own resources to do this simply because, “That’s what friends do. We help each other out.” We hope you like it, and please show her some appreciation here in your comments. I invited her to come today (she isn’t a fan like we are, but knows extraordinary talent when she hears it 😉 ) to see the finished project, and she would be touched to see any feedback.
So, Happy Sunday! We hope you will continue to enjoy yourself here at ilvoloflightcrw.com!
