I like to keep up with the skating world. Although I did skate for a number of years - seems like a hundred years ago! I still love the sport and enjoy reading all the posts from people who have just discovered the joy of skating and the vets who have been connected to figure skating for quite some time. I also enjoy chatting with folks and sharing information about skating and other topics. I enjoy the Le Cafe feature as well.
At first, I used to get into some of the juicier topics and sometimes ended up getting a little frustrated, but now I avoid topics that lead no where and just stick to the lighter side of things.
I really appreciated everyone's support here at Golden Skate while I was on sick leave. It helped to know people out there (even though I've never met them) care.
