Poker Words - A Poker Blog

Mostly a recount of my poker exploits along with a bunch of random other stuff just for fun.

Two Year Poker Blogerverary

This blog is now two years old. A year ago today I commented that it was becoming increasingly difficult to write about poker, and that I wasn’t sure if I could do it for another year. Well, I did it, although I cheated. I took much of the last few months off, and the poker content of this so-called poker blog has dropped considerably.

Here’s my dilemma. I like poker, I like writing about poker. I like blogging. But I don’t really have anything poker related to write about. I don’t like writing strategy any more because there are so many other better players out there already doing that. I still post the occasional tournament summary or random hand assessment, but there are only so many times that you can do that before it gets tedious for both the writer and the reader.

So I don’t know what that leaves me with. I suppose it would help if I played poker on a somewhat regular basis. A friend talked me into buying BattleField 2 a few months ago, and that has monopolized the majority of my usual poker time. Battlefield 2142 comes out next month, so I’m guessing that poker is going stay on the back burner for a little while longer.

If you haven’t already, go check out Sound of a Suckout, as he has also just passed the two year mark and more or less posted what I wanted to say.

In the meantime, I’m not going anywhere. I’ll still be posting somewhat regularly, about poker or not and hopefully my three readers will still be here this time next year.
