The Biggest News of 2011 (so far)

I’m sure many of you are thinking things like:What? TDA Training is on FB? No way!!!!
Nope! None of those things. Something which will rock the world is that TDA Training is now on Facebook!

We’ve decided to take the plunge and get back into the martial arts blogging business, and will now emulate the other great sites by going over to this newfangled (see, I’m oldfangled, so it’s new to me!) Facebook thing!

We plan to develop posts there by linking to things we read, discuss, debate, argue, and make up about them in the discussion forum, and be friends with other pages, too. It’s a whole new world, people, let’s adapt and get used to it.

How did this come about? Well, I don’t really know. I’ve been thinking about dumping the whole blogging thing, or going back into it with full commitment. And, seeing as to how I don’t want to have a commitment problem, I decided to do this thing right.

If any of you are on FB, please “Like” our page. If you run a martial arts page or site, please let me know. We will put our “Like” button at the top of the sidebar for a few weeks, and promote it in an annoyingly constant manner, so join up so that quit!

Fine time for me to abscond from Facebook!

For sure I'll mention this in next week's news.

PS: Don't quit blogging! I doubt I could take you in a match so I can't threaten you with violence. Hmmmm...

If you DO quit I'll be forced to post more photos from the family reunion. Did I mention I'm in an apron?

It's all on you...

LOL! Great comment!
And why did you abscond! Was I a year too late? Later?
Thanks for the mention, I always appreciate it, and and am trying to be a better neighbor to my fellow MA bloggers in like manner.
As to your PS, I hope to never find out, since I hate violence! But your apron threat is working. I'm posting, I'm posting! Please, for the love of humanity!

I've quit facebook three times in the last year... I'm not going back. A colossal waste of time for me. I'm not all that interested in the normal comments like someone got up and burped. :)

Anyway blogging is fine for me.

Hi John,

John: Were you running a FB page for your site, or a personal account? I am doing both, and FB now allows you to interact as the page only (in other words, your blog account). I'll probably stick with it, but think I understand why you did what you did.

Bob: I just found 185 drafts over the weekend. Can you believe it? Maybe you can, but I was shocked. I am amazed and ashamed that I didn't post more.

Bob, thanks again for the mentions. I really appreciate it.
