Just want to get you all familiar with using a blog before I head out on my trip. This'll give you a month or so to get familiar, save the link, and maybe even experiment with your own blog spot! It's really easy to do. It only took me 3 minutes to set up this one! The advantage of this versus email is that anyone and everyone can check your blog at their convenience. This way, you can follow me wherever I go! I can upload photos and text pretty easily...don't worry, I'll still send some personal emails as well. Welcome to my virtual journal!
