No blog of your own?
In the past Smiley and I have invited readers and fellow bloggers to participate in various themes- the most popular was the "What If We Hadn't Invaded Iraq" series (see the archives). A number of readers sent me contributions to post here, invariably stating something along the lines of "I don't have a blog of my own...". Well, now you do.
Drop on by My Blog Is Your Blog
and have at it. Directions to log in are on the site. Posting a message is as easy as sending an e-mail. My hope is that users will continue threads started elsewhere, or those who are occassionally inclined to post, but aren't otherwise inclined to set up and run a blog, will post there. Feel free to pass this along to as many people as you like.
As I wrote in the "welcome" posting:
Got something to say in a comment field on another blog that is just too long to fit? Post it here and leave a link in the comments at the referenced blog. Found a news article or other item online that you want to share? Post it here! Got your own blog and want to promote it? Here is your place!
Ideally I'd like to see some debate, blue staters and red staters, right, left and center, all contributing. Will it work? Who knows. Will anyone post here? Beats me.
To paraphrase the greatest college movie ever made, Animal House, "Grab a blog, don't cost nothing!"
End of post.
