And How Many Chess Bloggers?

There is a very good post today by David Glickman of the Boylston Chess Club Weblog titled "How many chess blogs are there anyway?" As with my "how many chessplayers?" question, his post is motivated by a wildly exaggerated number in a particularly popular chess blog with lots of publication and little fact checking. Kudos to DG for helping to keep things sane.

That's all the mentioned popular blog is about

Tom, that's covered with "wildly exaggerated" ;)

I am glad that Michael, who is leader of the chess blogosphere along with DG, saw the problem and made a comment sharper than usual.

I believe Susan would be good USCF president. She understands both top GMs and scholastic players. But if this is best what top marketing expert can do, then I'm afraid things are not going in the right direction.
