1999 Skating Articles at About.com
1999 - 2000 - 2001 - 2002 - 2003

All of the articles on this page were written by Kathie Fry for About.com in 1999, the year she was hired to create an inline skating Web site for them. Kathie resigned from About.com on July 30, 2003, after 4 years of service, because her own skating Web site (SkateLog.com) was requiring more and more of her time. She still has a very good relationship with About.com, and all of her articles remained on the About.com Web site until August of 2004, when a new inline skating editor was hired by About.com.
