GiLoCatur' Blog .. Entering 8th Anniversary

Hello to all GiLoCatur's Blog visitors,

Today is Saturday, 14th May 2016. It is about one week short of the 8th anniversary of this blog. GiLoCatur created this blog in May 2008, on 22nd exactly. The first entry is not about chess but about Chelsea and Moscow. 

Chelsea is the EPL club that GiLoCatur likes and supports. Does GiLoCatur still like and support Chelsea. The answer is yes, but it is not the same level as used to be. What GiLoCatur likes the most about Chelsea? The first time GiLoCatur likes Chelsea is during the era of Giafranco Zola as a player. He is one of GiLoCatur's most favourite football players. He is small physically or diminutive but very skillful and lethal forward. He had won Chelsea's Player of the Year twice - 1999 and 2003.

Another factor is Jose Mourinho and Didier Drogba. The former is the head coach for Chelsea twice - 2004 - 2007 and 2013 - 2015. Several championships have been won when Mourinho was Chelsea's head coach especially during his first term. While the latter is one of Chelsea's greatest players where he won the club's Player of the Year once in 2010.  

Enough with Chelsea.

Regarding Moscow. Moscow is the capital city of Russia. And Chess is a national pastime in Russia since long time ago. GiLoCatur had a chance of visiting Moscow more than a decade ago. Unfortunately, GiLoCatur has yet active in chess during the visit. Had GiLoCatur active in chess during then, for sure GiLoCatur would visit chess book shops and stores looking for interesting chess books and items to buy.

Enough with Moscow.

Let's take a look at the number of entries GiLoCatur wrote for this blog.

Number of Blog Entries Statistic

During the period of nearly eight years (22/5/2008 - 14/5/2016), the number of entries for this blog is 1,276. Obviously as in the above statistic tabular, GiLoCatur wrote the most blog entries in year 2010 with 357 entries. Obviously also, GiLoCatur is a very active blogger from year 2009 until 2011.

Many factors have contributed to the less active blogging for GiLoCatur. One of them is the change of job. Hopefully, GiLoCatur will continue blogging because GiLoCatur loves writing.
