The reason why I write this blog is simply because I have a passion for figure skating. I love that there are people out there that enjoy my blog and as long as people are reading, I’ll be writing. One reader sent me an email which I feel compelled to share. Warmed my heart!
Hi Aaron, thanks for writing your blog. My name is (omitted) and I’m from Hagerstown, Maryland. I didn’t start watching skating until a few years ago when Kimmie Meissner won a World Championships. They made a big deal about it here on the news. Her win peeked my interest in the sport. I didn’t know hardly anything about the sport though and when my daughters became interested in the sport and began asking questions I had no clue to the answers. For the past few years I’ve been trying to piece together my knowledge of figure skating (I’m know a lot more now) and about four months ago I found your blog. I was amazed by how much information you had. I decided to go all the way back to your first blog post and read your entire blog all the way through. I finished about a week ago. I feel like I got a complete history of figure skating and there is so much more I now know. Just wanted to tell you how much your writing is appreciated.
With warm thanks
Wow, that’s amazing! That’s the first time I ever got an e-mail like that. I’m touched and I hope I can continue to inspire love (and knowledge!) of figure skating.
