Since the very beginning of this blog (Jan 2004), I've been looking for ways to keep this conversation going, in as many ways as possible. The forums, weekly twitterchats, YouTube videos and photos on Flickr. And of course, Facebook.
Alongside those - and predating them in many cases - were comments beneath the blog articles themselves. These provided invaluable feedback to the various article authors, as well as becoming conversations in their own right. It offered a tantalising glimpse into the strength-training community.
Unfortunately, due solely to spam, I was forced to close down these comments in 2007. Although there are many other ways to talk about training (particularly the ones mentioned above), I always missed the kinds of insights they brought. Sometimes immediately, and sometimes long after the article was written. Always extremely informative.
I'm pleased to say that a recent move to a new server, a few software updates, and a little tweaking have resulted in one thing : the return of comments. To say I'm happy is an understatement.
Now it's over to you. In addition to the forums, twitterchats, Facebook and so on, you can comment directly on the articles themselves. The more recent works, or those published several years ago (here's a full list). It's all fair game.
What are your thoughts?
