    New Figure Skating Blog!

    I haven't been active on this forum (or any for that matter) for quite some time but I thought I'd pop in to let you all know about my new project: a figure skating blog. Now, I'll warn you all, I'm a PG 13 kind of person and this is a PG 13 kind of blog. I don't mince words nor will I be afraid to touch on "sensitive" topics. Most of the things you'll find will be editorials, interviews and features on skaters. I'm a big supporter of professional figure skating and I'm also not a big fan of the new judging system, so please bear that in mind.

    So far I've had the chance to do some really cool interviews, including interviews with Tony Wheeler and Allison Manley (who are incredibly interesting people and very knowledgeable about the sport), as well as interview choreographer Garrett Kling (who's very involved in the YAS - Young Artists Showcase) and coach Ben Ferreira, who as we all know was a huge name in Canadian figure skating as Canadian medallist and world and competitor. I have a whole host of other interviews coming soon, as I am a FIRM believer that EVERYONE's perspective - from competitors to judges to skaters to coaches, choreographers and fans help us ALL gain different perspectives on this fabulous sport. If you'd be willing to be interviewed or would like to share your events or reviews, please email me directly at N_N_23@hotmail.com.

    I also want to give a huge THANK YOU to Paula Slater and Golden Skate. This site has been a premiere resource for figure skating information for well over a decade. When I was working on a website called "Intensity On Ice" years ago, Paula was a wonderful supporter and I sincerely applaud her efforts.

    The website/blog's address is http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca and you can follow me on the Twitter at http://twitter.com/ohh_N. Really looking forward to sharing perspectives with all of you! XX

    The last thing I intend to do is flood Golden Skate with updates but I do want to share a little news about my new 'baby'!

    I'm starting to get organized with my new figure skating blog at http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca. I have a new Facebook page up with links to all interviews so far, which include Tai Babilonia, Randy Gardner, Doug Mattis, Lucinda Ruh, PJ Kwong & many more! You can now "LIKE" the page at http://www.facebook.com/SkateGuard for updates on many events - I'll also have a full review of the Halifax opening night of Stars On Ice Canada next week with pictures as well. I look forward to talking to more of you!

    Hi. I'm very new at this so please bear with me. I am a Mum of a 15 year old boy (Michael Durham) he just sat his novice test last night and past. He currently holds the New Zealand Nationals title and also The Australian Nationals title. I am very proud of our boy who started when he was just 12. He has come thru the ranks very quickly. He's very good at his sport and his peers at the rink are very supportive. Just wanted to get Mikes name out there.

    Welcome to Golden Skate Gerry!

    Post long & often.

    We haven't had anyone post from New Zealand before, and would like to hear all about skating there.

    Was your son Mike at the ISU Developmental Trophy in the Phillipines that is finishing up today?

    This is such a good interview with Lynn & Logan!

    It has great details about working with Igor, and of course, about Lynn & Logan themselves.

    Would be helpful if Goldenskate kept a running list of blogs. They seem to (happily) be popping up like weeds.

    We don't archive this list much, if ever, so it is effectively a blog list.
