Being a guy who swims for fun and competes in triathlons, the EzineArticles Swimming category has bothered me since the day we launched it.
Why? Because it contained way too many articles about swimming pools, hot tubs, pool chemicals and all of the physical equipment necessary to manage pools, RATHER THAN articles about the athletic swimming thing we humans do.
Finally, we split the category in two:
Recreation and Sports: Swimming
Articles about/concerning Swimming, Swimming Lessons, Swimming Strokes/Techniques, Coaching Swimming, Swimwear, Competitive-Swimsuits, Swimming Safety, Lifeguards, Ocean Swimming, Pool Parties, Diving, Olympic Swimming, Masters Swimming, & Benefits of Swimming for Exercise/Health.
Home Improvement: Swimming Pools Spas
Articles about/concerning Building Swimming Pools, Lap Pools, Pool Winterization, Swimming Pool Care, Spas / Hot Tubs, Pool Supplies/Chemicals, Pool Equipment, Kits/Covers, DIY, & Pool Toys/Slides.
Lastly, some swim humor for you:
So this guy promises to give a man a million dollars if he could swim across the ocean. He agreed to the challenge and swam halfway…decided that he was tired, and then swam all the way back home.
Why should you never swim on a full stomach?
Because it’s easier to swim in water!
