Before May 13, 2008, I read other blogs, but didn't have one of my own. Smokee's was one of those I read, and he had set up a freeroll for poker bloggers. Hmm, I thought, start a blog and enter a tournament for free -- why not? I was such a noobie I didn't know how to contact him, but Katitude contacted him for me. I didn't know it then, but bloggers are friendly that way.
My first post was called At the Crossroads, and was a bridge deal. Since then I've written 317 blog pieces on poker and 230 on bridge. Bridge players don't leave comments very often and poker players do, so I've gone more that route -- it's rewarding to receive comment love. I'm guessing maybe 10 people will leave a comment on this one and perhaps one of them will be a bridge player -- not sure why that is.
Trivia: The first person to leave a comment was anonymous, but the second was Jordan of High on Poker and the third was CK of BWoP.
My statistics say this is post #688, which is nearly one per day -- my keyboard is smokin'. I thank all of you who come.
