If you ask me, I'd say that we're in the middle of a full on revival of Appalachian culture, and it's time we let the whole world know. That's why I've led a top-to-bottom redesign of The Revivalist. With a fresh look and new features, it gives you a whole new way to experience the Appalachian South.The Design: It all starts with the site's updated look. It's a far cry from the original design, which was based on a free Website template. The new look moves the site's categories to the top, where they're easy to find, and it prominently features big, bold photos for every post. All told, the new site is easier to navigate and a lot prettier to view.
Free Badges and Wallpaper: "Like" The Revivalist on Facebook, and you'll receive access to Mountain Man and Mountain Mama freebies. First, you get social media badges. They're perfect as profile pics and fun to share in status updates on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus--wherever you post stuff for friends and family. You can also access free wallpaper for your computer desktop. It shows your mountain pride every time you boot up. To get yours, just like The Revivalist on Facebook, and click freebies. Download the goodies you want, and share them however your heart sees fit.
Fresh News Hand Picked: I find great news stories about the region all the time. This section on The Revivalist homepage gives me a place to share them with you. Swing by once or twice a week for curated articles all about the Appalachian South.
Pinterest: If you haven't already spotted it, The Revivalist now has a Pinterest page. Over there, I'm sharing the best Appalachian images from this site and wherever else I find them.
That's the latest and greatest. Though a lot is changing, my commitment to bringing you the best in Appalachian music, food, art, culture, and travel stays the same. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you following the site and helping make it better. Thanks for sending ideas, chatting with me on Facebook and Twitter, and re-pinning photos on Pinterest. Together, we really are spreading the word from the Appalachian South!
