The buzz continues to build for the Twitter Gulag Defense Network, a grassroots project launched last weekend by Twitter user Todd Kincannon. Using the hashtag #TGDN, the project connects conservative activists and helps Twitter users combat the abusive flag-spam tactics used by some leftists to silence conservative voices.
These are troublesome realities that CEOs, small business owners, and potential franchisees in the REAL world have to contemplate in the face of the implementation of the mammoth legislation known as the ACA aka “ObamaCare.”
We interrupt our look at 100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About for a different list today.
When I started this blog almost 5 years ago (5/24/05) I knew little to nothing about blogs, bloggers, or anything to do with this strange avocation. I didn’t realize how much time it could involve, or how addicting it could become. I didn’t know about the thrill of having someone link to what you wrote (or about having your sitemeter code on single pages so when someone comes to an individual post you don’t miss counting their visit).
But the biggest surprise, considering all the talk about bloggers being lonely recluses hiding in their parents basement, is the great camaraderie among the blogging community. I’ve exchanged hundreds of emails, IM’s, and phone calls with other bloggers. I’ve received help and support from them, and have tried to support them where I can.
Today’s list is Bloggers I’d Like to Meet In Person.
Michelle Malkin — She was the first big blogger to link to a post of mine (the one where I discovered the need for sitemeter code on individual posts). She is also incredibly hard working and prolific, extremely kind, and undeniably talented.
Ed Morrissey — Captain’s Quarters was one of my very first daily reads. In the years since I’ve discovered what most people in the blogosphere know, that Ed is one of the nicest people around. I would think that even those who disagree with him the most like him.
John Hawkins — The man is tireless. He is also engaging and an example of someone who make blogging work.
William Teach — The King of cross-posting. Not to mention smart and friendly.
