I've been trying to decide how I want to work the blogging angle on things. I initially started this blog to be something of a sounding board for my insane thoughts on the state of the world but I also wanted to use it to offer some practical advice. I think just hearing how bad things have become really doesn't do much for anyone but if we offer solutions, then the terrible news isn't always so terrible.
To that end I started a column on the website Newsvine. It's pretty much just a big forum where people can comment on news stories and it's connected to MSNBC.com so it has a much larger liberal audience. However, it allows you a space to post your own articles and voice your opinions. So from now on I'll be putting my opinion pieces there and offering up practical ideas here. That way, people who get nauseated by my rantings won't have to look at them while I give them advice.
I would have posted this and a few other things up last week but I was busy spending some much needed rest time with friends and working on a project unrelated to my writing. Then I had work and work always gets in the way of the important stuff.
So look forward to more ideas and less ranting here. And if you're still interested in hearing me yell at the void of the internet, check me at here:
And always remember, if you don't believe in something, you'll fall for anything.
