Blogger v. WordPress

So I’m sure you all are thinking – “okay, you switched from Blogger to WordPress. But what’s the difference?” So here is a post listing just a few of the cool, new features that this WordPress blog offers.

Pages. You’ll notice along the top of the site that there are tabs for different pages (i.e. About Us, Share Your Stories, and ATV Wall of Fame.) This allows the blog to have a more streamlined, organized appearance and allows us to put a lot more permanent content up.

Snapshots. When your mouse is hovering over a link, a little box pops up that gives you a little snapshot of the web page the link takes you to. I think that is really neat!

Search feature. Okay so this might not be a “new” feature but it’s certainly a more easily recognizable one. While the Blogger page did have a search box along the top of the page, I know I didn’t instantly recognize it as an inner-blog search (e.g. if I wanted to check out only posts about Stonewall Jackson Baseball I could type that into the search field and only posts where the words Stonewall, Jackson and Baseball appeared would be brought up.)

Different authors. Okay so maybe Blogger had this, I’m not sure and, well, I’m too lazy to check but we can have any number of administrators and all that so I can have a log-in and dad can have a log-in.

Easier Editing. On our end, the site is genearlly easier to edit and personalize. Look forward to more fun additions to the site!

Also, I think this page is a lot prettier. But maybe I’m biased.

Stonewall Jackson vs. Clark County

On our way home from Fort Defiance, we made our way to Rebel Park to check in on the Stonewall Jackson-Clark County JV baseball action. We ran into our good friend Bruce Alger and had a nice visit with him, as well.

Check out these pictures from the game.

Fort Defiance

We made our way to Fort Defiance High School to put the last check in the last athletic director’s hands. While at FDHS, we met principal Larry Landes and athletic director Jack Tucker – you couldn’t have asked for a more stand-up or more grateful pair of administrators. We look forward to seeing them at Kate Collins field for Fort Defiance night in June.

Here are some pictures from our venture to FDHS.

Our First Post

…on our shiny, new blog! We’ve switched over to wordpress.com instead of Blogger because of all the widgets and doodads this new blog has. We won’t be switching over the archives, though, so just in case you want to check out the older posts, we’ll keep a link in the upper right hand corner of this page.

Keep your hard hats on for a bit, though, because this page will be under construction for a little while.

Cheers!
