Membership Has Its Privileges

Posted by Filed Under: From the desk of the blogfather, Web Site Announcements

membership.jpgLast week, you got your first look at the new-look CRN, as well as the enhancements to the Running Blog Family(RBF) directory. Those changes were only the beginning.

What I’d like to talk to you about today is your becoming a registered member of CRN. Before I continue, I should mention that registering on CRN is different than submitting your blog to the RBF (click here for an explanation). I’d also like to mention that our member pages are not a place for people to promote their non-running related website or business. With those clarifications out of the way, let’s talk about registering on CRN.

    Why Would You Want to Register?

  • You get listed in our member directory.
  • You get your own profile page – a great way to connect people to your running oriented blog or website. Click here to see an example member page (my page).
  • You can post on our forum.
  • Commenting on CRN articles becomes easier – registering means you no longer have to enter your name, email and web site address each time you comment.
  • Within each comment you leave on CRN, a link will be shown to your member page (you must be logged in when leaving your comment for this to work).
    What You Can Do With Your CRN Member Page

  • Add a photo of yourself – Note: There is a known bug for those using Internet Explorer. If you have trouble using Internet Explorer, please try again using Firefox.
  • Add a bio
  • Add a link to a blog or web site
  • Choose a display name
  • Add a Facebook badge
  • Add a LinkedIn badge
    To Set Up Your Page

  • Register at this link. Note: I recommend that you do not use capital letters or spaces in your login registration.
  • Click here to login and add or update your member information (the login link also appears in the black navigation menu in this site’s header).
  • Click on “profile”.
  • Change your details.
  • Click on “update profile”.

Please contact me if you have any problems registering, adding or updating your information.

I’m looking forward to welcoming you!


About Mark Iocchelli

Also known as the "Running Blogfather", I'm a 40-something marathoner who has beaten stress fractures and terrible shin splints. Now I'm running double the mileage with no pain - and I'm getting faster. I love to talk about running form and Arthur Lydiard. I also enjoy taking photographs, have a beautiful (and very patient!) wife, and am the proud father of two crazy kids. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about the site.
