the death of the right wing blogger is the new black (or why i blog)
everyone is familiar with the john hawkins article about our demise so i wont bother to link. i read it and thought, oh well, so what, fiddlee dee.
i dont know why i blog, it was just something i started when tim blair went to the telegraph and sold out. just kidding tim (like he reads this). his personal blog was great fun and full of energy and creativity from commenters as well as hisoner.
so paco started his blog, then kae. i had been a contributor to tizonas, but decided to go on my own as well.
i am not a prolific blogger, and i rarely have points to make, or even the writing ability to express my views as well as others. i have my favourites and usually bounce off their favourite blogs. (keep your links up to date people, please!) for me, it is just fun and keeps me out of trouble. i think.
i was very fortunate to meet paco for lunch way back in another lifetime when i worked in dc, my daughter spent a day with kae when she was in australia. thanks to both of you. even our dear ash sent me a jar of vegemite.
i entertain myself mostly and hope some of you like what i do. if you dont, then you dont need to come back. i appreciate comments and dont mind when i dont get any. i read a lot of blogs and rarely comment.
like choosing my friends i dont have a niche - i am all over the place.
and thanks to minicapt who sent me that pic just today. how timely
