I have been writing articles for Vetrunner for two years. And I have been writing posts for this weblog for one year. So what now ?
Recent improvements to the blog have been “Coming Event Highlights” and the flying goose. I will continue to make improvements in 2006.
Did the weblog live up to its promise in 2005?
In January when I started, I wrote we would see “topics of interest; comments and questions on any running related topic; idea sharing; feedback; awards; social event notices; hints and advice; discussions; links; training and racing calendar; training group results; runners profiles; birthdays, anniversaries, hatches matches & dispatches; contact information; photos; whatever you want it to be!”
My answer is yes, it did live up to its promise, but I would like to see more interaction. So I will keep on listing and summarising your performances, and hope you also add comments on how you felt you went, and other events you have participated in. I will also review the “contributors” list and try and encourage more input that way.
Other things included have been some teaching on principles of running, cartoons, jokes and even songs. As well as photos, there were newspaper cuttings and dvd stills. Other writing included my own training plans and goals which I will continue to include.
The sets of ten principles I wrote about were on “conditioning”, “form”, and “racing”.
Future sets planned are “sample training sessions”, “stretches”, “health tips”, and something in the “motivational” arena.
You are all welcome to participate, contribute, or at least make suggestions.
In the Vetrunner arena, I would like my "articles" to become more "story". In the weblog arena, I would like my "articles" to become more readable with sub headings, dot points, key point summary etc. and fitting with space to spare on one page; short and to the point (e.g. not like this!). If you are creative and can help, thanks! Please do.
It looks like being a busy 2006!
