More than 800 posts and counting
On March 5, 2008 the ChessHeroes chess blog was born. Created and updated by Des Catolos, Chess Heroes has become a great place for interesting local and international chess reads. This week CH celebrated it’s second birthday and is now two years old! Congratulations from the Chessdom team!
Des Catolos comments the following on his birthday blog post.
“We have posted around 800 posts here, met many people from all walks of life, from different places and different races and through the years, here’s (only) a dozen things I could think of about being an amateur blogger, the toughest job in the world!
1. he must be his own writer,
2. he must be his own editor,
3. he must be his own photographer,
4. he must be his own researcher,
5. he must be his own proof reader,
6. he must be his own web designer,
7.he must be his own critic,
8. he must be a theorist,
9. he must be a poet,
10. he must be a dramatist,
9. he must be a humorist,
9. he must be a philosopher,
10. he must be a linguistic,
11. he must be a story teller,
12. and most of all, he must be a humanist.
you name it…
I always held a belief that just as it is the art director who must be responsible to an audience, the blogger, if he or she is to maintain his integrity, must be responsible to himself. We’re talking about responsible blogging. A good curator of one’s own museum is one who can walked about silently along the hallways and to just point and present to the visitors a work of art with a hand out.”
