I mentioned here once or twice before about the modern technology to reach out to chess fans and enthusiasts worldwide. I am absolutely amazed! Not so long ago, some chess media (as well as the general media) have a complete monopoly. They can choose what tournaments or which players to promote. All organizers and chess players are at their mercy.
Today, thanks to blogs, facebook, and twitter, etc., the tide has turned. Chess organizers and players now have the ability to fight the system and do their own chess promotion.
When I started blogging back in May 2005, there were only a handful of chess blogs. Today, there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of them out there. The best part is you don’t even have to be computer experts. This is great for chess, chess organizers, and chess players.
My chess blogs are now read by chess players and enthusiasts from more than 100 countries and I have around 2,050 people on my friends’ list on Facebook after some months. I am still trying to get a hang of it with Twitter. If you have not tried any of the new tech, do it. It’s easy and fun! 🙂
