As a member of the club, you have access to post your chess related (and even unrelated to chess in some instances) stuff to this blog for everyone in the club to benefit from.
Blogs are like mini websites. They are free, easy to use, update automatically, so that you can share your thoughts and ideas with others by simply making a comment. Or you can send what you want to post to the club email and it will get posted to the blog as soon as possible.
Blogs are online journals that allow other people to read your thoughts and reply to them.
Because blogs are not private, they are not a place to put personal grievances or private thoughts - but a place to talk about ideas you want to share with the rest of the world about the chess club. Some examples:
- Tell people about your experience in a chess tournament or just a chess game.
- Share some your ideas about a chess topic.
- Talk about chess and share some tips
- Provide links to other interesting chess sites on the Internet not currently listed on this blog.
- Promote and sell something to your club members
- Write stories or poems…or chess jokes.
For instance, this upcoming weekend a few LCCC’ers will be playing in the Michigan Open. These members will be able to post their thoughts and experiences at the Open here on the blog, so the rest of the club members that could not make it there, can share in the experience.
We have a fine website also. That is our foundation…..our on-line stadium for the world to notice and enter.
The blog is the field where the members perform in front of everyone. The blog is the on-going game for all the LCCC fans to enjoy. And yes, we have fans that can’t play chess at the Club, but still read the blog and visit the website.
So get involved with the blog. It’s here for you too!
