thread of openness

Have you tried the sugar smacks?

{Update:} I want to send out a big thank you to everyone who has stopped by to visit....and especially those who've dropped comments. If you'd told me that I'd have written a piece on Linkin Park in my first week here....I wouldn't have believed it, but there you go.

k/o feels right to me...and I intend to make it worthwhile for you to check in here....either for the content or the links.

Vis a vis the nascent Blog Network on the lower right...in a nutshell, if you link to me, I automatically link to you. That may seem impassive, but what it actually means, in practice, is that I'll be checking out your blog and reading it, and hopefully vice versa. I hope this favors smaller blogs over huge ones we already all know.

The list is currently messy as it seems that big community sites show up over and over again in various guises. But once the list settles down, and it will, as this blog settles in, I think it is the fairest way to do a blogroll, and has interesting possibilities. In fact, I'd love to think that the blog network and my ever changing links above it could become a cool reason to visit here in it's own right...ie. checking out how culture and politics intersect on different blogs...and cross through this one.

  • KO - this is great. I never thought I would say it because I am the ultimate political junkie...but it is nice to have a place that it politically tinged but not exclusively about politics. I checked out the Sugar Smacks and emailed a stupid Bush photo to my girlfriend's Republican brother (who does have a sense of humor and will be able to laugh at it). The Linkin Park thread was excellent as well.

    Thanks, everything really looks good.
