I've got a blog!

Jeez, I hope it's not contagious

http://jbcycling.blogspot.com/

Not much on there yet that you all haven't seen, but now I've mastered (ok, a small overstatement) yet another facet of internet technology.

Hey, as long as I'm at it, I'm doing another Team in Training season and my fund-raising website is at:
http://www.active.com/donate/tntgsf/tntgsfJBucley

Anyone want to donate?

Just how many self-serving links are we allowed to cram into one post, anyway?

JB

I created a blog using .mac, but I found it much easier to post what's on my mind on here. I started it, and kept it going for several weeks, and I got lazy. Anyways, here's a link to my blog:

I started my blog in April of 2003. I was in the process of building up my new frame and was writing it down as sort of a journal when I heard a radio tech talk show and the guy (David Lawrence I think) said blogging was going to be the next big thing so I found blogger.com (lucky I happened to pick the one that got the biggest) and posted my journal in there and decided on a screen name.

At first it was a detailed ride report every time I did anything, and that got pretty old, then I got better with posting photos and scanning in my old stuff, and now I try to document conditions on the mountain and keep useful facts and figures about the mountain... every once in a while someone finds it useful.

Wife thinks it's a waste of time.

+1 - I've wanted to ride up Diablo for a few years now, and it was your blog (combined with some *subtle* pushing by a few TnT coaches) that finally got me off the coach and willing to try it. I'm still not fast, but I've done it as much as 3 times in one day.

Thanks! You too JB.

You saw then that I got a mention in the Trust but Verify site... man that's the big time... even if he did call me a nut. Actually he said he posted my graphs so Floyd could compare Diablo to roads he knows, so Floyd will probably be a regular reader now Actually I've got to create one showing Diablo and Mount Palomar next.

My wife doesn't think mine's a waste of time. But I'm still not going to show her the first Google Adsense check.

[edit] moving this thread to the Blogger's forum.

Actually, let's have a copy for both here and NorCal.

Hmmm - there's a very slight chance I'll ever visit the bloggers forum to post in my own thread!
