A New Day

From the desk of Wendy Bellacomo, Marketing Manager

Looks as if it's time to revive this blog! Unfortunately, it has taken a backseat to its other social media cousins--Facebook, Twitter and the new kid on the block, Pinterest. While each of these has its advantages, each one also has its limitations, namely the fact that we are not able to share lengthier posts with you. And, with so much going on here at the FRQ, sometimes we just need more words than Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest allow!

So, this summer, look for a new and rejuvenated Flint RiverQuarium blog. We will be sharing all of the activities going on here, as well as some cool behind-the-scenes stuff and some words from special guest bloggers. We would also love to hear from you. What would you like to know about the Flint RiverQuarium?
