Sweet, my lacrosse site gonecksgo.com was accepted into the 9rules Network today. Of course, due to the nature of the site it has been added to the sports community within 9rules. The sports community is a small group but it’s good company. Other members include Major Championships, a blog about golf, and Travel Dive, a site dedicated to the world of scuba diving.
This is definitely a positive step and going to be a fun ride. I’m looking forward to the future of gonecksgo.com.

There are things being said and there are words being tossed back and forth. Some words are true, some are not.
All I’ve got to say is that although I’ve yet to meet Paul Scrivens we have had a few witty exchanges in various blog comments. It’s all in good fun and I enjoy doing it.
Everything I’ve heard about Paul tells me that he is a stand up guy. You cover his back and he’ll cover yours. Here’s to you Paul. Everything comes and goes and you’re better off for taking the high road.
Note: This mushy post was inspired by todays events across the blogosphere — have we found a new word for that yet — and this post by Colin.
This sums it up quite well

Lacrosse has become my favorite sport to watch over the last couple years — partly due to the fact that I’m not rich enough to fly down to Florida or Texas and catch the NCAA football games I love so much.
Not to take anything away from lacrosse though. It is our national sport in Canada, even though hockey is definitely more popular — for now. Since I started watching lacrosse, the Calgary Roughnecks have managed to go from an expansion team to league champions in only 5 years. Not only were they the champions in 2004 but they also have numerous Western Division titles during those 5 years as well. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging game but after almost a year of working at it I’m making a little headway. I like to compare my experience with blogging to my experience with tattoo’s – they are addictive.
After setting up my first blog I thought it was great. Writing about topics I enjoyed and keeping a pretty regular schedule. Shortly after I became part of The Über Geeks, this blog was next, and now I’m working on a new blog/website to be named at a later date (hint hint – albeit an obscure one ;^).
With my regular work load as a freelance designer and developer it is definitely becoming a challenge to keep all these websites going. Don’t get me wrong, it is a fun challenge but a challenge nonetheless. So with all of my regular work load, and four blogs I think I may be tapped out – at least if I want to retain any sort of quality, if that’s what you consider this to be.
My question to you, oh faithful reader, is how much is too much for you to handle? I can understand how professional writer’s could maintain or contribute to much more than I but that’s their business. If you’re a professional writer how many blogs can you maintain for fun versus how many for profit?
