new blog site

You are here, reading this, thinking "hmm... something is up. It doesn't look the same." Well, it's true, it doesn't. The purpose of a blog is for others to read it. To pass it on. To get more people to read it. To pass it on. The idea is to create an ever expanding community.

The past blog setup was limiting our visibility to the rest of the world. It was hosted on our own web server, and although it looked nice, and functioned ok, it was not getting the traffic it deserved. So, we moved it back to the blogger site. In doing so, we get some fun new tools (like the survey tool - look at the top of the right bar!), and also the nice 'Bookmark It' (bottom of every post) that lets others link to our posts in their own communities, in hopes of getting more people to visit our blog and keep coming back.

The idea is to spread the word of helping to find a cure for diabetes, on a bike.

So, that being said - we can change the look and feel if there is something you just really don't like. Let Katie know, she'll see what she can do (but I'll warn you - you have to be pretty specific - she doesn't handle vague well). Given some time, she's hoping to make the right bar wider and the post bar wider as well.

Hope you enjoy it.

Katie,

New site looks great. If you figure out how to make the post bar wider let me know. I've been trying to do that for 3 years.
