    A NOTE FROM KATHIE

    WHY I RESIGNED FROM ABOUT.COM
    Most of you have heard by now that I resigned as editor of the About.com inline skating Web site, effective July 31, 2003. There was no big blowup or anything between me and About.com, and in fact I will still be working for them on several different projects. I only resigned from that job because my SkateLog.com site has taken off in such a big way, it is no longer possible for me to edit both the About.com skating site and my own SkateLog.com site.

    WHY IT IS GOOD NEWS, NOT BAD NEWS
    This is really good news, not bad news, because I'm sure About.com will hire someone wonderful to replace me, and now I will have time to finish up all of those articles that have been in my queue forever. I will also be able to answer of my email much more quickly, now that I have effectively reduced its volume by 50%.

    YOU CAN BE THE NEW ABOUT.COM GUIDE
    You can apply to be the new Inline Skating Guide at About.com by connecting to these pages and following the instructions:
  • Be A Guide
  • Available Topics
    If you get the job I will be your biggest fan!

    MY NEW MESSAGE BOARD
    I have a new message board of my very own now, and because it is so new, I would REALLY APPRECIATE your help getting it off to a good start by replying to questions and starting interesting discussion threads of your own. You can connect to my new forum here: http://www.askaboutskating.com/forum/ ... and you can sign up for your own user name by selecting "Register" from the blue menu at the top of the page. If you have any trouble registering in the forum please send email to me at kathiefry@skatelog.com and I will create a user name for you.

    MY NEW CHAT ROOM
    Sunday night chats are back! I will be in the chat room every Sunday night from 7 to 8 pm Pacific (California) time. My new chat room is located here: http://www.askaboutskating.com/chat/phpMyChat.php3 (It's open 24 hours with scheduled chats every Sunday)

    MEET ME AT THE X GAMES (LOS ANGELES)
    This week I will be spending nearly all of my time at the Los Angeles X Games, watching the action, interviewing and photographing the top pro skaters, and trying not to drool over them too much (that part will not be easy...). Most of the X Games events will happen at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles and admission is $5 per day per venue. For more information see: http://expn.go.com/expn/summerx/2003/

    MEET ME AT THE SPEED WORLDS (VENEZUELA)
    In November I will travel to Venezuela for the 2003 Inline Speed Skating World Championships and I am in the process of trying to connect with the local skaters so I can hang out with them on skates between reporting on the official event (as you know, I always try to mix my business with plenty of fun). For more information about this year's speed worlds, see the official web site at http://www.patincarrera.com/mundial2003/index.html (select Spanish or English at the top of the page)



    And a few last words...

    I loved my 4 years as inline skating editor for About.com but now I am very excited about being able to devote 100% of my time to my own skating Web site for the very first time

    Watch out skaters, you haven't seen anything yet!!
