As I mentioned in my previous posting, traffic here has gotten much higher than I ever expected when I started this blog. Thanks to everyone who is visiting, and welcome! I’m not the only one who’s been seeing an increase in traffic, and as I mentioned elsewhere, I’m finding new “pragmatic liberal” sites cropping up all the time. Most of them have been started by old acquaintances from elsewhere around the web. The result is that my blogroll is getting rather large, and even I have some trouble keeping up with “who’s doing what.”
That’s why there’s a new site on my blogroll which I recommend checking out – Pragmatic News – Progressive Blogs for the Liberal Realist. It’s been started by Leanne from Blue Wave News, and it’s a newsfeed aggregator of the latest entries from a group of pragmatic liberal sites. I strongly endorse it. 🙂 It’s in its early stages now, but it looks to be a very easy way to check and see if something new is up, or what’s happening around the various blogs. You might notice I’ve added an RSS feed on the left-hand side for Blue Wave News. That’s the other site I write for, and I do recommend you check it out, and feel free to comment.
For those of you who comment here, again, welcome and thank you. It’s in the “guidelines and stuff” tab here, but if you don’t see a comment appear right away, it’s because your first comment here has to be approved. I set that up as a spam protection, because even though WordPress has pretty good spam filters, they weren’t perfect. After the first time, you shouldn’t have to wait.
This blog is coming up on its first anniversary shortly, so you may see some changes in the “look” as I start tinkering with the various templates WordPress makes available. They keep adding new ones all the time, so I’m going to be doing some experimentation.
