Club Lefty content...

I would like some comment if possible on the following subject. If you would be so kind as to let me know what you are thinking I would very much appreciate it.

My posting goal to this point generally speaking is to write on subjects that do not get much play in the lefty blogosphere. I do this because I figure if you want the lefty perspective about the issue/s that dominate the news on any given day that you can check out kos, Americablog, Atrios etc etc....

Of course when an issue is very near and dear to me, (stolen elections, Iraq war etc.) I'll let fly with my two cents regardless of who else is talking up the subject, but I digress...

The trouble with this from my way of thinking is that it can be difficult to find anything interesting and topical to post about when you limit posts that cover the issue of the day. Perhaps, while I do echo the lefty perspective, some readers would like to know what I in particular have to say on the hot issues.

Then again, when you check me out you are getting a perspective on a fresh subject quite often that you won't find by clicking on most of the big boy lefty blogger sites.

So the question boils down to this: Should I start posting about issues of the day more often than I do? Or do you think the content as I've progressed over the last several months is good and I should keep the same philosophy?

If you'd like to comment but do not wish to make a comment on site feel free to email your opinion to me @

I'm with you 100% on this. "Me, too" blogging turns me off. If I see a blog with too many links to Kos, Crooks and Liars, Democratic Underground, etc., I tend to keep 'em off my blogroll. Also off my blogroll is anyone who has more than 100 bloglines subscribers already.

I guess my only advice, doll, is to always focus on the writing in addition to the issues. You're bright and you know how to spell which puts you in the upper 75th percentile of bloggers. I've had to learn by doing to keep it more personal by allowing my own bemusement to shine through. I made the mistake of telling my dad at a young age that I wanted to be a writer. "Just remember, dear, you are easily amused." That's what he said. So my easy amusement now gives me my own little corner of the blogosphere. I OWN IT, Daddy! ha ha ha.
