    Chess Blogs

    I enjoy writing a blog, but I'd like to read some more blogs.

    Any recommendations?
    I've never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

    I'm trying out a new blog site...

    Most are hopelessly outdated and/or parochial and you know what happens to a blog or site not being updated with recent info. Nobody cares to visit it!


    However, there is one blog that I would recommend to anyone without hesitation because it's simply the best and that is Shaun Press's Chess X-press

    http://chessexpress.blogspot.com.au/

    Apart from local news it contains a variety of international events, games etc.

    and here is the great man himself

    Thanks, I do check out Shaun's blog, but not as regularly as I should.

    http://closetgrandmaster.blogspot.com.au/ was at one stage the most prominent Australian chess blog by far, even contributing to its author at one stage winning a Purdy Medal for chess journalism. However it has been largely inactive for over a year now with just a single post since last May.

    My impression is he's working too hard! Hopefully he'll retire loaded at 38 or something and go back to his blog.

    chessexpress has recently turned 10 years old and in that time has averaged 99.6 posts per 100 days. Not bad going!
