I had a poker blog about ten years ago. I actually got into blogging by reading All In magazines reviewed poker blogs. Tao of Poker was one of the best blogs out. The author ran a contest where if you cracked aces with queens you get one of his paintings(can you had to have a poker blog). Obama was following him on Twitter and I had my blog linked to his blog. His blog had lots of traffic and I blew a good chance to make myself known.
