Looking for TV Feeds My Family? It's been shamelessly re-branded Brioux.TV. Bye bye Blogspot, hello WordPress. The site has been completely redesigned and should load faster and run smoother. Plus there are many more features, including something I’ve always wanted–a quick shortcut to the weekly podcasts. There are also dedicated sections for ratings and reviews and room to add video links and other goodies.
One thing you’ll find much easier to leave are “Comments.” Please feel free to provide some feedback on the new look. Let us know if we’re on the right track and what else you’d like to see.
Thanks for the over two million page views so far and thanks especially for helping TV Feed My Family!
