    SKATELOG IS NOW A DAILY SKATE BLOG
    I receive so much skating news and information every day that it is no longer possible for me to fit all of it in a monthly or even a weekly newsletter. It is also taking me longer and longer to post new articles and photos, because I am receiving a huge amount of information every day from all over the world,

    But I have come up with the perfect solution!

    This idea has turned out to be a real stress reliever for me (a reliever of stress caused by me not being able to post photos and new articles as quickly as my contributors are hoping I will be able to do it).

    I created a new daily "blog" on SkateLog.com where every day I am posting news and interesting tidbits about skating all over the world. Instead of waiting to post news until I have time to turn it into a full blown article, I am now posting news, photos, and interesting tidbits about skating all over the world in this file every day:

    SkateLog.com - Daily Skating News Log
    http://www.skatelog.com/log/current.htm

    I will still send the SkateLog Newsletter via email but this new daily news log will allow me to keep those newsletters down to a reasonable length, because I will use the newsletter primarily to announce new articles and remind people to check my Daily Skate Log for recent news.


    FREE SKATING LESSONS IN NORTH AMERICA
    In the Spring of 2003, certified inline skating instructors all over North America will offer free introductory skating lessons. This program is a great opportunity to get your non-skating friends and family involved in your favorite sport.


    AFRICAN SPEED CHAMPIONSHIPS IN NAIROBI
    The Fifth Annual African Speed Skating Championships will take place February 28 through March 2, in Nairobi Kenya.


    WINTER X GAMES COMPETITION SCHEDULE
    The 2003 Winter X Games began in Aspen Colorado on January 29 and they will continue through Sunday, February 2. This year the competition will include skiing, snowboarding, motocross and snowmobile.

    SKATING COLORING PAGES FOR KIDS
    Here are some coloring pages with a skating theme that can be printed out for kids to color.


    VIDEO CLIP OF BRAZILIAN ROLLER DANCERS
    Erica Cordeiro of Rio de Janeiro Brazil sent this video clip of her "Planet Roller" roller dance company on the beaches of Rio and on television. (An article about Skating in Rio is coming soon!)


    A NEW BACKWARDS SKATING VIDEO
    Roller dance video king Richard Humphrey has released his 5th video tape called "Backwards Skating at Its Best". Richard has a unique approach to teaching people to skate backwards. His method is based on observing the natural body movements of experienced roller dancers when they are skating backwards.


    NEW FAN SITES AND PHOTOS OF SKATERS
    My new Anni Friesinger fan site has a photo I took of her earlier this month at Thialf Ice Stadium in the Netherlands and the Dennis, Jan and Yuri sites have fabulous and creative photos by the amazing Ewoud Broeksma (I will be publishing more of his photos over the next few weeks, so stay tuned...)

    A NOTE FROM KATHIE
    My SkateLog.com Web site was only put on the Web in November, but already that site is averaging more than 2000 visitors a day (that's VISITORS not page views!). I am so excited about seeing that kind of growth on my brand new site in less than 3 months. It makes me feel very motivated to do even bigger and better things with
    SkateLog.com and SkateGRRL.com.

    Here is a list of the most useful and popular pages on SkateLog.com:
  • Current - Daily Skating News Log
  • Current - Calendar of Skating Events
  • Archive - All Skating Articles
  • Archive - Free Email Skating Newsletter
