I like poker blogs. I read them. Go ahead, call me a nerd. Whatever.

Anyways, I read some more than others and I think many CCers would do well by checking in with these blogs because more often than not because they are highly entertaining and insightful. Now, don't get upset or get your feelings hurt if i didn't rank you or you got a lower grade than you think you deserved. I am not a mod or any superstar of the poker community, just a fan of poker blogs ... so deal with it.

From the approved CC list, here are my personal grades for each blog (I omitted my own):

Grade A: (frequent updates / great content / great design)Grade B: (solid updates/solid content/decent design)Grade C: (sporadic updates/average content)Grade D: (barely any updates/content)Grade F: (dead / hasn't been updated in +1 months)

your column thing on the right has always been off, Stick. It starts after your last post. I always figured it was just a techie problem you didn't know how to fix (I don't either :/ )

Thanks for the reviews, icemonkey!

This is a nice thread - there are so many out there. It will help some people decide which ones to check out - and encourage some others to update and improve theirs.

Grade "D"

That is about to change starting today, I'll be updating once a week.
And the content will be increasingly better IMO.:)

BTW, this has really opened my eyes, thanks;)

Awesome, Im glad mine is grade A, although the design now, is just a temporary nice look untill I get the real thing done which I'm putting a lot of work into now.

I have bben posting almost everyday, and although I may not have a million readers I enjoy the one's who do read and post.

I think this thread is making more people either start blog's or make theirs better which is a good thing, good stuff Ice.

Right on, I had no idea this thread would be this popular, but the idea was to give props to those that have great blogs, and to inspire those that *could* have amazing blogs to be motivated to put a little more time into doing so.

For those that need a new blog, I would highly recommend blogger (free!). It's cross-linked with your gmail/google account as well as picasa. And if you want your own domain name, it's only $10/yr.

I think I might start one of these...... Does anyone know if Stars has an auto Blog Doomswitch though as this may deter my decision.
