Thumbs up Wrist Twister Rider Blogs are now setup for everyone!

Every user of the Wrist Twisters community now has their very own blog, to use any way they see fit. You should see a Blog link in the Navigation bar at the top of the screen.

You can use your blog to write up your motorcycle thoughts and ramblings, blog about a motorcycle riding trip you're taking, blog every time you do maintenance on your motorcycle, blog everything you do as you rebuild your latest motorcycle project. You can even just blog about living life.

Also, feel free to read other's blogs, and leave posts and comments on others blog entries. We've created a few Blog Categories, but feel free to add some custom categories unique to your blog.

Enjoy!

It's going to be ok. Calm down. Breathe.

We should do a Wrist Twisters group hug. Would that make you feel better?

yep... never been known as someone who kept my opinion to myself...

what trips me out is everyones fascination with twitter...

i guess i ain't nosy enough or maybe i its the fact that i just don't care what other people do as long as it don't infringe on me or mine...

at work some of the lemmings i work with watch t.v. and i have to suffer through it.. and they offer to keep you up to date with breaking news through twitter...

do you really need to be that plugged in all the time... honestly does the news flash that lindsey lohan and brittney spears had a pooty flashing competition really rate as life interruption worthy?

i am really happy we don't have t.v. here in my house... it is nice to go online and i can pick and choose what i read and see... nothing like a nice book to help sleepy time...

The nice thing about blogs....
You can post a trip report on the board and copy it to your blog.
The board will comment, joke and laugh, etc....
The blog will remain mostly intact and you have control over it.

You can point friends and family to your blog. They can keep up with your adventures etc... with out all the WT side stuff. ie, Ghey comments.

Ok, that helps explain the reasoning, I was of the same opinion as Brian that we're already doing that by posting up here. I hope people don't start posting ride reports on their blogs at the expense of posting them on the board though, if that becomes the case it would seem to be damaging to the forum and I don't want to have to read through each and every blog to keep up with what's going on with everyone.

And that is a concern. As with every tool, it has to be used properly.
I personally like the idea and need to investigate it myself.
If you don't like the idea... don't use it.
I am actually excited that Lash is willing to cover the expense of server space for it.
