Best of Hoopinions

I thought it would be fun to link some older posts that many of you may not have seen.  I used to have another hooping blog called Hoopinions that I merged over here about a year ago.

I thought I’d do a Best of Hoopinions post today so newer readers can take a look at some older content and see how I’ve come along, both with hooping and blogging.

Let’s hop in the wayback machine, shall we?

The Best of Hoopinions

The Journey Thus Far:  My very first post on Hoopionions, and it’s the first post here when I merged blogs.

Attack of the Headless Hooper:  Remember The Hooping Game?  I was so into it when it first came out.  Here’s a bad video of me doing one of the challenge songs.  You’ll get the headless part when you watch it.

Spinspiration Hoop Troupe Debut:  My debut outing as a performer!  It was so much fun, that’s why I keep on doing it.

Hoop-tastic Weekend, Part 3:  Why Part 3?  I tell a good story in it.

How to Get Cable Inside Your Polypro Hoop:  It looks cool, but it was a bitch to get that ribbon in the hoop.  It is my hope that this tutorial will save others some misery.

So, there you have it, five of the best Hoopinions posts.  I hope you had as much fun going down memory lane as I did.


4 Other Hooping Blogs to Check Out

I am surprised, but in my searches around the Internet,  I have been trying to see if there are any other dedicated hooping blogs out there.  There are some sites, such as shops, that have blogs, or, there are hooping blogs have haven’t been updated in a very long time.  This makes me sad.

Still, I found three other quality hooping blogs that I think you should check out as well, and maybe get inspired to start your own!

Twistin Vixens Hooping:  This is a cool blog!  It has a great layout and excellent content.  It is the site for a hoop troupe located in Minnesota.  They promote their classes and performances in their blog entries and are a great resource for anyone looking to start hooping in the St. Cloud, MN area.

Caroleeena’s Circles of Joy:  Caroleeena is quite a well-known name in hooping circles, and her blogging website is great, too!  She uses it to not only promote performances and classes, but also gets genuine with her readers and engages the hooping community.

HulaHoopla:  This is a special site.  Why is it a special site?  Because they’ve got a podcast!  As far as I can tell, it’s probably one of the very few, if not the only, hooping podcast out there that I’ve found.  They have a lot of great guests on their ‘casts, and I plan on digging into their episodes myself.

AerialPrincess:  This is a brand new blog that was just started, and it deserves a look.  Though not primarily a hooping blog, the writer is a hooper and is looking to write about the circus arts, which hooping can be classified as with some styles.

I’m sure this isn’t a comprehensive list.  Who else out there has a hooping blog?  Is there one you particularly like?  Share your favorite with me!
