Wings Over Iraq has officially moved to its new, WordPress-powered home, complete with its own domain name, www.wingsoveriraq.com.
There’s still a bit of housekeeping to do–such as the Blogroll–but I think you’ll enjoy the new look. I’ve also expanded to Tumblr, which cross-posts to the official Wings Over Iraq Facebook page, as well as my Twitter feed. You can also find the links to these accounts at the top of the screen, plus a link to the RSS feed on the right side.
While the official blog site itself will slow down, that doesn’t mean I’ll be any less active. Most of your daily news links will pop up on the Facebook page, which also cross-posts to Twitter. The Tumblr page also includes a whole slew of great videos and pictures.
Contrary to the claim that milblogs are dying, I’d like to think that they’re evolving instead. Whereas in the past, blogs might be used to share a simple link, Twitter and Facebook have now filled that niche. Thus, the daily chatter has subsided, leaving behind longer, more thoughtful posts.
Hope you enjoy the new look. Here’s to an eventful future, filled with great stories, rigorous analysis, and lots of LOLcats.
