If there wasn’t enough social networking sites out there already with facebook, myspace, friendster, twitter, yahoo groups… now there is more. Someone in the derby community created yet another place to post things and get to know other derby people from around the world.
Introducing, Derby Nation a site for all your derby connections. Not limited to skater’s… open to skaters, refs, coaches, staff and volunteers… both male and female.
The site creators encourage you to: “Post your bout and event dates. Share pictures. Create groups for your league or team. Chat on the message boards. Blog about derby life.” It is easier to use than myspace and has less junk than facebook. It is completely customizable for both those who know html and those that would rather not ever have to learn codes.
Will this catch on? Today, there was just over 600 members signed up worldwide and it looks like that it just was released a few days ago. Each individual must be “approved” before your account is completely set up. Mine only took minutes. It is definitely worth a look to see if it is worth your time and effort 🙂
