Just as I was typing the title to this post I felt a sense of déjà vu. It was about two years ago that I revamped our old website as we were getting ready to begin support raising and used the same title 'A New Look". This will be version 2. Time has passed and without getting into the details I have gotten a little frustrated with our hosting service. I have had a lot of problems with their servers and have decided to jump ship and build a new site.
This new site has all of the same content that our old site had but in a slightly sleeker, easier to maneuver format. At the moment this is the only blog post but in the due time I will import all of the posts from our old blog. Again, without getting into too much techno babble I am moving content between two very different and not quite compatible systems so it will take a little time to iron out all of the wrinkles.
You may also notice that in the address bar of your browser it says willandjo.org rather than willandjo.com. While switching services I received a free domain to add to my ever growing collection. I feel myself slipping towards explaining domain services but I will hold myself back because I think most people find it really dull. Suffice it to say .com and .org will bring you to the same place.
We've also decided to change the format of our monthly newsletter as well. I hope to add a lot more pictures to give a better glimpse into our lives here in Japan. You may also notice that our newsletter will come from a new email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't worry though, it's the same newsletter from us.
Well, I guess that's about it. Not exactly exciting news for most people but it makes life a little easier for us over here and hopefully we are able to communicate more easily and effectively with all of our supporters. Thank you.
