What Is Skateboarding? posted by Skateboarding Fan

In skateboarding, the person rides a skateboard and performs different types of tricks and difficult maneuvers. It is mainly a recreational activity, but many consider it an action sport. For many people it is also a mode of transportation; however, in certain areas it is illegal to ride a skateboard. The first skateboard can be traced back to the early 1940s, when people used to attach wheels of roller skates to wooden boards or boxes, and ride them. However, skateboarding as it is now probably came about when certain surfers in California were looking for some activity when there were no waves. It is not clear, who made the first skateboard, but many people seem to have come up with the idea during the same time.

The first skateboards were manufactured, when a surf shop in California placed an order with the Chicago Roller Skate Company to make sets of skate wheels, which could be attached to wooden square boards. This is why, skateboarding was initially called sidewalk surfing and the skaters rode the board in a surfing style. This activity became very popular and soon it developed into a separate sport with its own unique maneuvers and tricks.

Skateboarding changed dramatically with the evolution of ramp skating and building of skate parks. Earlier, tricks mainly comprised of two-wheel riding, pivoting on back wheels, and jumping over an obstacle and landing on the skateboard. Movies and TV series have also played a big role in popularizing skateboarding culture.     

Usually jerseys and uniforms are not worn by skateboarders, but they like to project their uniqueness by the graphic designs on the deck of their skateboards. Previously not much attention was paid to the appearance of the skateboard, but now graphics and design play a major role. With the evolution of skateboarding, the design and artistry has also simultaneously evolved.

Inbound link contest - Win $100! posted by Earn Money Blogging

To try and motivate our bloggers to get inbound links we're going to have a contest to see which blogger can get the most inbound links to their blog. The contest begins now and ends July 31st, 2008. To be entered in to the contest all you have to do is go out and get as many websites to link to your blog as you can and at the end of the month send us an email listing all those links. All links must be active from August 1st through August 7th when we'll be judging the entries - a winner will be announced on August 7th. All entry emails must be received by Midnight on July 31st, 2008. You can email them to sportsfan@nbabasketballonline.com

We're going to impose some restrictions on the types of links you can get so please see below for the full list of links that do NOT count.

To get started simply go to Google and find other websites and blog that are about the sports and teams that you write about. Email the website owner and ask them for a link by explaining that you think your blog would be a good resource for their readers. Or offer to write a guest post for them with your by-line and URL at the bottom of the article. Or offer to exchange links with them by writing a quick write up of their site and a reciprocal link back to them. Some webmasters will be happy to add you to their blog roll even if you don't give them a link back (which is ideal) but some may want you to link back to them - you can easily do this with a quick blog entry on your blog about their website.
