Best Chess Blogs on the Planet

I was pleasantly surprised today when I discovered that my blog has been rated among the “Top 30 Chess Blogs & Websites Every Chess Enthusiast Must Follow.”

Out of these 30, my blog was rated 19th, not bad at all for one of the “Best Chess Blogs on the Planet!” You can see the full list here.

I take this as a proof that people like what and how I write, which gives me immense satisfaction. I started this blog because I wanted to write about the things that were interesting to me and because nobody was writing the things I wanted to read about chess – hence I decided I will write the things I wanted to read! After 3 full years of existence it seems that the blog is growing stronger and stronger and its popularity increases.

I will continue in the same direction because I still like to write about chess. The beginning of 2017 will mark the 4th year of this blog and I hope things will only improve onwards.

Thank you all for reading and supporting this blog. If you would like to have more personal contact and insight into my work, I invite you to join my Inner Circle.

In case I don’t find the time to revise the World Rapid and Blitz, I wish you a Happy New Year and all the best in 2017!

    Really interesting approach! To write what the other want to read is quite difficult, but to write what you want to read makes your task even more difficult. But, in the same time that task is inspirational one. You proved that!

    Congratulations for being listed! Your chess blog is definitely one of my favorites, because of the instructional value of your games that you annotate and share, and more generally, I like your writing style that always provides some kind of persoal narrative. Have a happy New Year!
