Blogging from China

As many of you know, Eric and I wish to share our journey in China with all of our family and friends via this blog. I have been told by many people, however, that blogging from China is sometimes very difficult. It seems that many folks are unable to access the website. If that happens, some dear friends of ours, Danny and Lisa W. (who adopted their little girl from China last summer) will be posting our pictures and information to the blog via emails from us. (Thank you guys! You know how much we love you, right?!)

In regards to photos specifically, I was told by another adoptive parent today that any pictures we attempt to post from China may be blocked by the government. In this case, or if we just have an incredible volume of adorable Noelle photos we wish to share (duh!), we will attempt to post our pictures on To make it easy for y'all, we will just put a link on the daily post that you can click on, which will take you directly to the photos (are you paying attention, Mom?). So to test this theory (remember...I'm self-taught at this whole blogging thing), please click the link below to see if you are taken to the Johnsons2China4Noelle Flickr photo page.

NOTE: If the author if this blog is unable to post pictures and information to said blog whilst residing in China, D & L have my permission to just make up a fabulous story for Noelle's fans to follow while we're away. :)

The link worked fine for me. We didn't have any problems using blogger in China. There was a different way to sign in, but I can't remember right now what it was. Once a friend explained it to me, it was simple.
