Blazing Blades blog - no longer active?
« on: July 07, 2016, 01:33:21 PM »
Does anyone else read the Blazing Blades blog?  Author goes by 'kwantifiable' and I think his real name is Peter.  It's a wonderful daily compilation of other articles about skating that have been published worldwide.  Link:  http://kwantifiable.xanga.com/

It has been a week since the last daily update.  I am hoping nothing is wrong with the author.  And it's possible it's something wrong with my computer, but I can't think of what.  All the other blogs and forums I read are updating just fine.  I really miss the daily updates!

Last post I see (on Xanga) is from June 30th.  Maybe he's on vacation?

Bill Demotte, who was a well-respected FS fan, passed away recently, but you said the blogger is named Peter, though, so I guess it's not the same person.

ETA: His Twitter account is still active, whew!

ETAA: He switched from Xanga to WordPress:

Thank you so much, FigureSpins!  I am relieved that he's ok, and to know where to find his great blog.
