You and your website look great. 
I really admire the women who play chess well. No fortunate to have a female child. My to sons are just watchers of the game and don't want to be addicted to the game just like their dad. Please advise if ever you will visit the Philippines. Regards to you and your family.
Comment: Thanks, Emmanuel! All the best to you and your sons! 
Maybe one day they will also like it.

Hi Natalia, I'm a fan. I was wondering if how, at the age of 6, you were thought and learned to understand chess. I got this kid, she is intelligent but has no interest in chess. I'm a chess addict and I wish one of my children to learn, appreciate and excel in this field. 
Thanks a lot and good luck to your upcoming tournaments.
Comment: Thanks! The trick is that one shouldn't impose his views on the child. She has the right to choose her vocation herself as opposed to living up to your expectations of her becoming a strong chess player. I am not discouraging you from teaching her chess, but the interest should come naturally. If she likes it eventually, that's fine. If not, then it's also ok. Besides, sometimes it takes some time for kids to start enjoying chess. I myself started studying it professionally a few years after I have learnt the rules, and that is quite typical.

What does it take to have a FIDE rating? esp for someone in my sub-region??
Comment: Find the nearest tournament organizer and make sure his events are FIDE-rated. Check out FIDE's Handbook for the info: 
However, I have checked the data for January 2012, and there doesn't seem to be a single FIDE-rated tournament scheduled in Ghana. :(

Не плохо было бы добавить поиск на сайт. Помню что читал на Вашем сайте про каменку, де не помню, а поиска нет.
