“Skating the Issue” takes a break
As most of you may know, in addition to writing this blog I am a full-time college student. While writing for True/Slant and learning to balance blogging and school has been an invaluable experience, over the past few weeks it’s become evident that school has slowly taken precedence over blogging.
Because of this, I have decided to take a hiatus from True/Slant for a bit while I focus on my final exams and settling into my winter schedule. It’s been wonderful sharing my opinions and views on the skating world and its members, and although this break is needed, I hope to return to blogging before the Olympics.
I have really appreciated all your feedback and interest in my writing, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the skating season has in store for us. So far this season has brought with it many surprises, like Kim Yu-Na’s struggles last weekend at Skate America and Evgeni Plushenko’s strong return to competitive skating in Moscow. If the past six weeks are any indication of what’s to come, the next few months are sure to be jam packed with excitement.
While I’m gone, please feel free to email me at Jeki815@gmail.com if you have any story ideas that you’d like me to address once my school schedule calms down a bit, or if you’d like to offer any feedback on the blog.
Thank you for being such a great audience, and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season!
