Bookmark Now: Are you Following These Six Cool Chess Blogs?

Hello chess friends, it's amazing to see how the Internet has changed availability of chess information in just the last few years. It's fun too. We just thought let's check out some of the chess blogs with cool content that you make a must on your weekend reading at the least... if not daily reading!!! Let us know if you want to add to the list. The list is in no specific order, just all the lovely chess blogs we've been finding great to read. News chess sites are not included.

1 - Chess Improver by GM Nigel Davies and Friends: The Chess Improver - quote and unquote - "is an independent and non-aligned site founded by GM Nigel Davies and written by chess teachers and enthusiasts. The focus is on chess improvement rather than politics or news, a stance that we are particularly proud of. Contributors may not necessarily agree with conventional wisdom, party lines or even each other, though we do have a policy of not deliberately trying to offend anyone." Enjoy!

2 - The Streatham & Brixton Chess Blog: Now this is one awesome chess blog with a list of contributors posting super chess content. You've got it all there - chess history, chess art, chess boxing, chess puzzles, chess reviews, chess games.... phew (stop for breath, go back to blog categories). Any chess lover worth his pawns will be hooked to the blog whether he belongs to the Streatham & Brixton Chess Club or not. Go on, bookmark it.

3 - Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog - OMG you mean you guys don't already know about this chess blog? ;) This is the chess blog where you find personal updates by the 12th Women's World Chess Champion, albums with exclusive photos, videos and links to GM Kosteniuk's various sites and social media accounts. Want to connect to a truly stylish and killer chess GM in real life? Go ahead join her Facebook, follow on Twitter, bookmark her websites and she will always reply to her fans.

4 - GM Gawain Jones: This is a sweet, personal blog by GM Gawain Jones and his wife Sue. It's a nice fun chess blog that keeps you entertained even as you get insight into the hectic life of a world-class Grandmaster.

5 - 9Queens: We like reading about the 9Queens Chess Blog because of the wonderful work they are doing for empowerment through chess. They offer free chess programmes in Tucson, Arizona and always come up with innovative ways to make chess popular. It's fun reading about the fun they are having with chess.

6 - The Chess Drum: Well this one's a bit of a news site, but it's a super chess blog actually as it champions the cause of Black chess players around the world. Definitely one of its kind chess blog on the planet.

Well that's for now. Feel free to send us suggestions to add to the list. Meanwhile, of course, don't forget to read
