We all just wanted to say thank you for taking time to read our blog. It really means a lot to us. Your comments makes us feel like we are not alone but travelling with all our friends. Your company does a lot to prevent us from being homesick and increases the pleasure of our journey. Please know that everyone is encouraged to comment. We have relatives, work colleagues, members of our church community and all our kids' friends as readers and even if you might just want to call yourself an acquaintance we welcome and value your contributions.
We realize that some parts of the blog interface are not really straight forward so I created a couple of screencasts to orientate you to the basic features of the blog. We really, really want our readers to become members of the Travellerspoint community. When you become a member you get a username and password. This allows you to log onto our blog. When you log on your commenting is immediate and you won't need to put in an email address or your name. Logging on also allows you to comment on any of the photos we have uploaded to our gallery. The biggest benefit of commenting as a member is what you give to us (sorry for asking for more). When you comment as a member your comments become a premanent part of our travel memories. If you don't logon before you post a comment, your contributions will only stay on the blog for a maximum of 90 days and then they disappear, which is really sad for us.
Your comments can be anything you want. Just a note to say you are reading the blog is a wonderful addition. We really want to know who our readers are.
Thanks again for following us. We would love for all of you to identify yourself at least once so we can put names to all the page views we know we are receiving. We also love suggestions as to how the blog can be improved or requests for information or pictures about any part of our travels. If the instructions I have given are unclear, leave a comment and I will try again. I know the How to Become a Member screencast is a bit choppy and seems cut off at the end, I hope it still has the essentials but let me know if you need more.
