Welcome to MY World

My little Mighty Mites![/caption] Let me begin by saying that this (blog) idea has been on my mind for a long, long time. Or, should I say, I've been wrestling in my head for a very long time for a way to communicate with all my hockey friends without disrupting the rhythm of our CoachChic.com website. Truly, I want to reserve that site for the meat and potatoes of our game, or all the tips, tricks and training shortcuts I and a host of other specialists can gather.

Oh, in case you're new here, and you don't know about CoachChic.com, it's my pride and joy, and what I think is fast become the world's largest hockey resource site. (This weekend, after about a year on-line, we should hit 300 total posts -- including articles and videos.) Anyway, even if you're not a member, I always try to leave lots of great content open and Free to Non-members. So, take a visit when you get a chance.

So, what can you expect from Coach Chic's Hockey Diary? Well, I'm kinda hoping you'll find it interesting the things an ice hockey coach might do during the course of a day (and sometimes long into the night). For sure, I'm going to do a little musing here, some daydreaming at times, and probably a bit of wishful thinking, too.

Nearly every day I am talking with some pretty interesting hockey people, and now I'll have the opportunity to share such things with you. I'm also big into social media, so you're especially going to read here about some fascinating people I meet in my cyber travels, and some pretty sharp guys and gals to follow -- on Twitter and on Facebook. I've linked those two sites because I'd love for you to connect with me in either or both spots.

Going back to CoachChic.com for a moment... It struck me recently that this blog would be a great venue within which I can give you a heads-up on certain things members can look forward to over there. So, in a way, it eventually will replace the Announcements page and The Latest News.

By the way... Like any blog (including CoachChic.com), you can be immediately notified about a new post just by using a service like Bloglines (<= just click on the link). Also, like any other blog, I'm really helped when you leave a Comment about a given post. So, don't be shy; please say hello and share some of your thoughts with me.

Okay, I guess that's it for my first-time post here. Next on tap, I'll introduce you to "a day in the life of a hockey coach". :
