Neither Here nor There

   Hey everyone!

   It's time to kick to is blog back up into something resembling a worthy-to-read blog here on Chess.com. I'm going back to the more personal way of doing things while not worrying so much about Chess.com/TV Group recaps since there aren't that many shows these days that I can or know how to recap. Pardon our Blunders is still bi-weekly, but other shows like Your Games Analyzed or The BIG Show will only happen from time to time now.

   So here I am again, going back to my roots, so to speak, and I really don't know what I am going to focus on. It could be a chess news event, a personal blog about chess, or basically whatever I feel like I need to say. Other than that, let's roll.

   Watch the shows, join the group and be part of some of the great discussions every week on Chess.com/TV.
