Well if I’m finally going to start updating this regularly I need an idea of what I’m going to write. Oh my god, it’s another poker blog. Just what the world needs. Well if nothing else, I need to keep updating regularly so that I qualify for the mighty "blogger tournaments". PokerStars just announced one of these, but unless I come up with two month’s worth of fake posts I’m not going to get in that one…
So why am I doing this? Mainly I have a terrible memory. Really bad. If something isn’t written down, it never happened – so I’m starting to write things down. I’ll probably spout some random thoughts now and again as well as bore the world to death with my poker antics.
The impetus for getting off my backside and doing this – is that I’m going to be in Vegas for 4 weeks in the summer and I wanted to keep a diary of that trip. I actually made the same journey last year, and kept a blog for a couple of weeks of it but lost momentum – probably the desert heat or something. This time Claire is keeping her own blog – on account of getting into the main event of the World Series of Poker – and for those who have too much time on their hands it might be interesting to read both our accounts of the trip and see it from two different points of view.
I also remembered that I scribbled the makings of a travelog from a previous trip to Vegas in Summer 2003. If I can fish out these notes, I’ll use them to fill the space when I have nothing else to say. Might be interesting for any other Vegas geeks out there… you never know.
