Grandmaster Natalia Pogonina (ELO rating 2501) is one of the most active Internet users among professional athletes. She is not only a frequenter of social networks, but also founder of the website and a blog with an intriguing title "Chess Kama Sutra". In this blog Natalia is actively responding to questions of the Internet public, compiles family ratings (by adding up points of male grandmasters and their wifes), and also publishes interviews with well-known colleagues, e.g. with ex-FIDE World Chess Champion Alexander Khalifman. Via the Internet Natalia has also played chess with her fans and won in 54 moves.

Quote: People often say I should try a career in modelling, although I have never dreamed of getting involved into such an activity. As to "Chess Kama Sutra", that is the title of the book we are working on.

when is your next book coming out? :) 
Yr Ruy Lopez article is brilliant as was your when to resign in a game - I forwarded this to my club team. I am ELO 1650 only but I like to think I can understand some higher level things :). You explain stuff very well though - a nice mix of practical psychology with deep chess insight. Cheers! (Im @battez on twitter but this was worthy of a longer comment) 
I like Matthew Sadler and Jon Rowson as other chess author-styles.
