It's been years since someone first explained to me what a blog is, and many times the urge to start one has been on the brain. Today, with just a few weeks to go before the Beijing Olympic Games, finally making it happen.
The process actually began in Jan. 2008, with the best of intentions for a six-month countdown to the 8-8-08 at 8 p.m. Opening Ceremony in China. Then there were false starts in April (admittedly, I procrastinated until the Olympic Torch Relay reached San Francisco, only to wind up scrapping things when the relay route changed, causing an exhausting chase across the city in pursuit of seeing The Flame). Then summer work and travel kicked into high gear -- all good things, but it's not easy keeping up with the constant stream of Olympic news and updates available online!
Hopefully this blog will help many folks access some useful information on the Olympic Movement, and learn a thing or two (will post some Olympic Trivia from time to time), or keep up with the action in China as time permits me to post it. Thank you for visiting and sharing your Olympic stories, too.
