Hi, we will soon be looking for guest authors. If you are a walker who has been around the world we would love to have you come aboard. If you are a doctor (podiatrist or osteopath) who is willing to write about preventive awareness, walking problems or disorders once or twice a month for Grotto Blog we would love to have you. Our mission at Grotto Blog is to help educate, thereby improving, the walking experience for everyone from children to seniors. Walking, with all the new gadgets and shoe types, has become a sport. And, what a GREAT sport it is. If you are a serious walker or know someone who is, we would love to hear from you. We will be looking for those who would also like to write of their experience and write reviews of their favorite equipment. Our goal as a member website is to give access to the site to all sincere walkers. Everyone who walks does so differently. Routes, trails, and paths are all different as are methods of walking. We want no one left out. If you walk we want to hear from you. The new website is now under construction having been moved to its new server yesterday evening. It is now blazing fast and we are working feverishly to get it up and running. It is, however, very complex software and will take some time to get finished. At this juncture, we are most likely looking at four weeks. As we have said before, join the site here and we will be able to move you over to the new website when it is ready. We have installed a social software here which gives you the opportunity to invite family and friends and make this a neighborhood of walkers. Registration is easy and free. We would love to hear from you so join us soon. Admin.
