A little help here, please

The Greenville News is launching their new site sometime today (March 24). You'll notice that my cycling blog has disappeared from the front page. It won't automatically go there when I post an entry. That is why I need your help.

Before the site goes live, you can find my blog here: Once it goes live, you should be able to go to the old URL, click on the sports section, and then scroll down until you see my blog entries. Please swing by and give it a read. When you are there, be sure you click on the "recommended" link at the bottom of the blog.

I've enjoyed sharing my view of the Upstate cycling community in this space on The placement I had on the front page really helped give the blog some exposure and I'm afraid with all the changes I may lose out. There isn't much reason to post there if people aren't reading it. People won't be able to read it if it is hard to find.

Thanks for helping me out. Tell a friend as well. I want cycling to be represented on the site. Hopefully, you feel the same way.

What fools we mere bloggers be

"A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back." Proverbs 29:11

I wonder if we might need to call ourselves fools in this Blogger/MySpace/Facebook culture of today. We claim transparency as a great virtue -- but so is discretion and knowing when to hold back.

Then again, are those who open their lives truly being transparent? Are they simply creating a world as they wish people to see?

Well, I go on record that is not intended as a window into my soul. You won't read much deep and personal stuff here. I'm reminded of another verse from Proverbs, "When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent." Proverbs 10:19
