    Reading all the interesting comments from such knowledgeable fans, I have to say that I'd much rather hear from these fans then many of the reporters who cover figure skating. Journalists like Rosie DiManno and Phil Hersh, while experts at being nasty, don't seem to know all that much about figure skating. I do not mean to say that all figure skating reporters are like this, as I have read some very good sports journalism...I just find that many of the articles on figure skating do not have good fact-checking and just the knowledge base required for interesting and informative articles on skating. I was wondering, given figure skating's increasing popularity, if we will start seeing more blogs and forums for figure skating fans. I really enjoy reading PJ Kwong's blog--she really knows her stuff, and her material seems to be a hybrid between blog entries and journalism.

    Which blogs do fans on here like? Do any of you have your own?
