Urban Climber suckers me again

by Tom Markiewicz on November 7, 2007

I just succumbed to an offer by Urban Climber to re-subscribe to their magazine. How can I resist half price and a free chalkbag?

Despite my frequent complaints that it reminds me of the skateboard mags I used to read as a kid, I can’t get enough pictures of climbing. My suggestion to Urban Climber – if you’re going to continue printing articles, at least use some layouts with fonts I can actually read. Some of us climbers are starting to get old…

After I sent the form in the mail, I checked out the site. Apparently, this was no special offer. Everyone gets the 50% discount and a freebie climbing gift. Oh well.

    I agree the font and style of the magazine is a bit annoying, though perhaps as a new climber I don’t have room to speak yet. I got a free subscription to Climbing Magazine itself from one of the free magazine subscription sites, but I think I was too late to get the free Urban Climber. Anyhow, not too long ago they had a USA Climbing Special, and in that was a subscription offer to Urban Climber for under 10, though you don’t get the free bennie , chalkbag or other climbing gift. It is a shame that it the style is so odd, as it seems to be the magazine that I would be more interested in, if it just kept it’s same focus, but “normalized” its style.

    I want to blog about issues I don’t want associating with my ‘work’ self. How do I choose a blog host that has a good anonymity record, in other words, I don’t want it to be easy for people to match up my IP address or access my personal details.. Also, having set the blog up, how do you encourage high volume visitors?. I’ve only used LJ before and I want to try something a bit different, but anonymity is the biggest issue for me. Would welcome suggestions of good free blog hosts..

    Just curious if there are any blogging websites where I can start a blog that aren’t as well known.. I am already aware of sites like blogger, wordpress, livejournal, xanga, vox, etc. . . Are there any up and coming blogging websites possibly?.
