Working my way up from novice to competent at chess, while not taking myself too seriously


I started playing chess a little over a year ago, with only the knowledge of how the pieces moved and absolutely no strategy whatsoever. Over the last year, I have learned some tactics, openings, and overall strategy. While I am certainly not good by any stretch of the imagination, I would like to show someone working their way to getting better, while still making common mistakes that people new to chess make.
