    New Skate Guard Articles/Interviews

    Since I've been doing a lot of skater interviews on my newish blog "Is That A Skate Guard In Your Pocket Or Are You Happy To See Me?" at http://www.facebook.com/SkateGuard and http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca, I figured it was easier to just share the interviews for all of you in one thread here as opposed to making a new thread about each skater or interview. I want to thank all of you who have sent words of encouragement and thanks for the interviews and historical writing I've been doing since I started this little project and offer my apologies to the one (1) of you who took the time to complain.

    The most recent two I've been fortunate enough to do were with Wesley Campbell (http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2013/...-campbell.html) and Douglas Razzano (http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2013/...s-razzano.html). For any of you who have missed them, here's a whole list of all the OTHER interviews I've done so far since the end of February:

    Nice to see more blogs committing their time and attention to skaters who wouldn't ordinarily be in the major portal headlines

    Glad you're appreciating the interviews, leapfrogonice. There's a whole lot more to good skating than talking about the top ten skaters in the world. I believe everyone has a story and an experience worth sharing and there's a lot more to talk about that the levels on people's spins or the GOE on people's jumps. People have been skating for hundreds of years. That's a lot to talk about!

    You're very welcome. It's a challenge at this point as I'm only in my first year of doing this but I'm having so much fun and learning so much as I go, as well as getting to meet some amazing skaters, coaches, choreographers and skating historians in the process.
