Ice Doesn't Care--2nd Year Blogiversary!

Can't believe I made two years!  I thought I'd run out of topics after a couple of months, then I realized I  could  cover things so trivial no other skater would touch them…and, of course, pictures of cats.

So, what were my most popular posts of the last year (based on page views) ?

The Six Stages of Adult Figure Skating thanks to Lori over at International Adult Ice Skaters for mentioning it.

Judges--Thinking Positive. Apparently a coach at Bowie Ice Rink (I don't know who) posted it on Facebook. Thanks!

My favorite posts of the last year?

Types of Coaches

The Great Skate Bag Debate,

The most popular posts involving cats…

When I'm the tallest skater on the ice.  I have to admit, the punchline on this was a lucky find.

String Theory for Figure Skaters

So, do you have a favorite post? Waiting to hear about it!

My motto for every lesson is as follows:


  1. Thanks for such a great blog!

  2. Yay! Been enjoying your blog very much. Have to say my favorite post so far has been the one depicting your holiday adult routine using the dancing animals - had to show that one to all my coach friends!

  3. Congrats on two years! Lots of great posts.

    I must have missed that Bowie FB post! Perhaps not on the Arena's FB page.

    1. I don't know which FB page it's on. Ask around. I'm always happy if coaches find my posts useful.

  4. *My* favorite was the "Hernando's Hideaway" post. I STILL laugh whenever I think about the picture you chose to go with it! :-D

    Keep up the good work!

  5. I LOVE the cats. Reading your blog always makes me smile. Now to look back and see which one is my favorite.

    BTW, how do you put those pictures into your blog?

  6. Congratulations on making it to two years! Thanks for writing for us! I always loved your Russian ice dance coach stories. I miss those. Please keep blogging!
