Just a quick post to let everyone know that we are hard at work here! Please pardon our brief hiatus from posting and commenting as we organize the Flat Brutus project. Things should be back to "normal" (whatever that is) by early next week.
The blog has been needing a bit of tidying up for a while. In order to make it easier to navigate, I've de-cluttered the home page and added a Nav bar. Notice that I added a "Flat Brutus" page, where visitors can quickly check on the status of our flat traveller, including his whereabouts, links to places he's been, and the amount that we have raised for FBRN.
Other pages I've added include a photo gallery for all our agility snapshots, a video page, a links page, and an awards gallery. Some are still under construction (needing captions & links added), but most are up and running with at least a little content. Take a look around, but please pardon any snafus that you see until I get the kinks worked out!
I have also been hard at work on facebook, where I have made Flat Brutus his very own page (click HERE for a link)! It should be an easy way to post then archive all his adventures, including links to the blog and photos from the visit. I am assuming that I have your permission to share some pictures both here and on Facebook (this blog links in there automatically), so please let me know if that is not the case when Flat Brutus comes to visit. I will most certainly keep all your personal information (like addresses) top secret, as well as giving you credit for your images.
Other important changes inlcude a new email address for Brutus (now he has his very own, brutusthefrenchieATyahooDOTcom) as well as a button on the sidebar so that anyone (especially a new visitor) can easily link back to the original World Tour post and see what all the hype is about.
I have also been working with French Bulldog Rescue Network to set up a way to make donations for those of you who asked about contributing/matching. I will include more info on the Flat Brutus page soon, but if you go to FRBN, just scroll down and look in the left side panel for the little dog bone that says "Click here to give". That will take you to a PayPal page, where you can make a donation in any amount by various methods. Or just follow this link. Just be sure to indicate "FLAT BRUTUS" somewhere in the notes that PayPal allows you to include. That way FBRN can keep track of what donations are coming in for the project & get back to me on what the donations are.
So there you have it, no rest for the wicked here. We'll keep our noses to the grindstone (Brutus will have to be really careful of the rest of his face....) and see you all soon!!
