Best Free Places to Find and Talk to Other Jugglers
If you are new to the world of juggling then you may be interested in learning from people who have been doing it for a long time. There are a bunch of free places where jugglers can swap information, videos, and inspiration. Go sign up and leave a comment today.
Jugglers Forum – This is a relatively new juggling forum with topics arranged by juggling category. It’s membership is small at the moment but the topics are engaging, informative, and fun. Sign-up is free and juggling newbies are welcome.
Rec.juggling – This site has been around for a long time and has a ton of great juggling information. You can literally find thousands of pages about almost any juggling topic. Even a little about joggling. Great stuff and someone does an excellent job of keeping SPAM at bay.
IJA Juggling Forums – If you want to talk to jugglers, consider checking out the IJA juggling forum. You get a different group than the ones on the previous two forums. And they have a forum just for jogglers. Incidentally, this summer I’m going to create a forum on this blog. I like the IJA joggler forum but I’d like to see a community of both jugglers and runners. The IJA one tends to be mostly jugglers.
Juggling Talk (Gatto Forum) – This is another place you’ll find jugglers talking about juggling. Anthony Gatto is considered by many to currently be the greatest juggler in the world. It’s really cool to be able to swap messages with people that are professional jugglers.
IJDB – The Internet Juggling Database is mostly an interface for rec.juggling but it also has a chat function and has a ton of free content for learning about juggling.
The WJF (World Juggling Federation) used to have an open forum but they’ve gone and made it a paid site. Too bad, there was some good stuff there. But you can still look through the archives for free.
I include these sites because lots of people have accounts on these services and might not know about the juggling spots.
Facebook – I’ve got a Facebook page here and if you want to “friend” me, feel free to drop me a line. Just tell me you read my blog and I’ll accept. There’s a group called Jugglers United which is a place where jugglers can chat.
MySpace – Well, I’ve got a MySpace page too but I don’t update it much. It seems to get hit by SPAM much more than Facebook. You can find juggling groups there too.
If you know of any juggling places I’ve missed, feel free to post in the comments below.
