    If any of you have free time in your day to day, i'm really hoping to get some followers. Now, first let me say - I #$@!&ing hate the word "blog" but I don't know what else to call it, so we'll say i've started to "Write" my day to day thoughts down in an effort to bring information to people who normally wouldn't seek it out.

    Obviously, you're not my target audience, im getting quite a bit of information from this site EVERY SINGLE DAY...but what i was hoping for is followers to help spread and expand. It costs you nothing, and the more readers I have that are giving feed back, the better writer i'll become.

    I was approached by my local News Station and asked if i'd be willing to provide time to time opinions and information on a few things, as i've been very vocal in my community on certain issues, particularly on their website & Facebook page...so I feel like, at least in some very small way, I finally have a voice to get some information out there...and I don't want to screw it up.

    Here's the URL

    http://noddablog.blogspot.com/

    Warning...my posts tend to be lengthy.

    WHat im trying to concentrate on is flow and maintaining interest...I realize that's a difficult thing to accomplish with such long posts, but I feel like if I leave anything out, I might lose them through ignorance of the facts...

    any feed back at all is most appreciated...especially if something i've said in there is wrong.

    Check back often, if you're interested, as I usually have something to say on the day-to-day =)

    Thanks in advance

    You are singing to the choir. Every politician should understand this.

    PPC, I have one bit of advice, if you don't mind. Drop the 'Criminal' in the addressing of Quinn. Regardless of whether he is or not, you're not wanting to just preach to the choir, but attempt to sway the pagan's to the light of the truth, sir. Thus, bludgeon them with the truth, but don't start by tossing burning coals in their faces.

    That is very good advice.. I struggled with that idea before posting... Alas I was weak and frustrated.. But it's good to have friends to point it out.

    With the new design I'm working on right now, I'll also adopt a new direction ... No more hyperbole

    PPC, the site looks amazing! You also did a great job on the articles. If you can get people to just go to it, it shouldn't be hard to get more followers. Have you tried announcing it on facebook, twitter, ect?

    The writing goes without saying, but i just want to give you a pat on the back for making your non-blog a well maintained easy flowing professional website, and not a resemblance of some 5th graders computer class geosites abortion of a webpage. thank you sir for not only the passing of correct information, but not looking like one of those "Amys Page!!1!!1OMG1!" anger inducing self made sites that deserve to be nuked from orbit.

    LOL! I do appreciate the comment, and laughed at the memory of geocities....back in the day, geocities, angelfire, and tripod were all people seemed to know how to do =) My my my, web technology has come a LONG ways!!



    There's a new post up on my Not-A-Blog.

    I know it's preaching to the choir, but felt like sharing it anyways =)

    It's talking about common myths in the gun-control debate, and I attempt to put some of them to rest once and for all...as always, please contribute, especially if you see something I may have gotten wrong...im still working on polishing my message and approach...maybe one day i'll actually be good at this :cool:
