Update your bookmarks, people! All the cool people are heading over to Roller Derby for Beginners.
I’ve updated that site to make it more useful for new or wannabe skaters. Now it’ll be updated regularly with new posts from skaters and writers who know their stuff. Today, there’s a post from Elektra Q-Tion from the You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Loose Wheel blog. I know you’re gonna love it.
As for little anecdote? It’ll still be here, but no new posts for the foreseeable future. See you over at the new joint.
The long version…
This wasn’t meant to be a roller derby blog, you know.
It was supposed to be just little anecdotes. A project to record the small and funny things that pop up in life. A way to practice regular writing amidst working full time at a desk and practicing roller derby three or four days a week. When I started it, I blogged a lot about roller derby, plus a little about whatever I was doing at the time: trips to the beach, recipes, garden updates. Eventually, it became just roller derby.
Then I retired, and wrote a book about roller derby. Then I quit my job and became a freelance writer. Then I didn’t have much time to play or watch roller derby, and I didn’t always have something to say about it.
Plenty of other people do have a lot of really interesting and insightful things to say about roller derby, so I intend to highlight those voices. In that light, I’d like to introduce the new Roller Derby for Beginners.
Thanks for being there.
