Wig-Wags Moving to Wig-Wags.com!

with 2 comments

Dear readers and blogosphere colleagues,

I am in the process of making the great leap to a separate domain for my Wig-Wags blog. The new site is up and running but I’m still in the process of transitioning links and applying some spit and polish. That said, I have begun posting at the new site and humbly hope that you will redirect your readers/feeds/or email subscriptions to the new site. The new feed setup is live on the site or you can reach it by clicking here.

For those of you who have kindly placed my current link on your blogrolls, I am hopeful that you will reset them to the new site…


Wig-Wags on Wig-Wags.com

Note I’m in the process of rerunning my series on the Causes of the Civil War and am building a specific page for it which is one of the nifty things about the template I’m using available from Pagelines. As I get more familiar with the new software, I hope you’ll drop by from time to time to see how the project is coming along. I may repost several series in new format so hope you’ll indulge me a bit as that process takes place.

By the way, feedback on the new site is most welcome. As was the case with bringing up Wig-Wags on the WordPress.com platform two years ago, this new effort is an adventure in learning. And I have much to learn!

Thank you all for your readership and support!

  1. You have a wonderful website. I am a published author and am wondering if in your extensive research you might have found some information about cold war history.

    My main reason for writing is that December 19, 1977 the pilots of the Fighter Squadron VF-31 intercepted and escorted a pair of Soviet TU-95 RTs “Bear D” that over-flew and took photos of the aircraft carrier “USS Saratoga” (CVA-60), while she was returning from her tour of duty in the Mediterranean Sea to her base in Mayport, Florida. On that day, two F-4 Phantom fighter jets flew out to intercept the Bears. The interception happened some 700-800 kms to the east of Bermuda Islands. I was looking at your website and hoped that with your experience and extensive amount of information you might be able to help me. I am trying to find out the names of the 4 crewman aboard the F-4 that day. There were 2 pilots and 2 RIO’s.
    I would be very grateful for any help I can get with this search.
