First, the big news: Leslie Goldman, author of The Locker Room Diaries and erstwhile blogger is back! Years ago when I first started blogging, Leslie’s blog The Weighting Game was one of my daily faves. Her wit, her honesty, her lack of fear in writing about bodily fluids – I loved her! She shuttered her blog to move on to bigger and better things but now she’s back (with a brand new rap!) with her new site All Health Breaks Loose.
Second: We’re still working out the kinks with the new site (the comments for old posts are still missing) but quite a few of you have commented or e-mailed saying the new site loads really slow for you or the cursor hangs during typing a comment. Ryan’s gone through the code and everything’s as stripped down as it can be. It seems to work for some people that after you’ve loaded the site 4 or 5 times, it gets a lot faster (not 4 or 5 times each day, but ever – something to do with caching). He’s also fixed the bugs with the Twitter share button, the mobile version and the text appearance in Internet Explorer. So, if you are still having issues loading and/or reading my site will you please leave me a comment with the problem and your browser and operating system? Thanks for your patience!
