Just thought I'd start a blog to mark my progress. I've been drilling tactic puzzles like crazy and it's really helping me see the board and not miss obvious moves as well as plan attacks in advance. Still having a bit of difficulty developing pieces in the opening but with more games I'm improving there as well. I think I did a decent job in this last win following most of the basic rules. Not moving a piece twice without a legitimate purpose, developing pieces before pawns, castling, attacking the middle. Still a lot to improve on though.
