I've set up a multi-author social blog to be used by my part-time blogger friends who don't want one of their own. Send me a note if you'd like to be able to write on For Consideration

Blog intro update

It's been a while since I've written blog recommendations; and even though I haven't written much in the last couple of months, there's still new blogs to recommend. Also, feel free to include links to your favorite blogs in the comments. I look forward to checking them out.

Let me start with Watchblog. If you've been looking for a site that in a civil, respectful and professional way has political content from the left, right and center (or Democrat, Republican and Independent), then you will appreciate this site. I was asked to join them a couple of months ago as one of the writers for the "center." Until recently I haven't had time to post original content there but at least for now I have that time.

Independent Voting is the website for CUIP, Committee for a Unified Independent Party, of which I am an active member. The title is somewhat of a misnomer in that CUIP doesn't advocate an actual third party; it is an organization that promotes independent voting and issues most important to independents such as election reform and representative government. If you're interested in becoming an active independent, I recommend you start there.

My friend Robbie from San Diego, formerly posting at Greetings from America's Finest City and Independent Opinions (though I need to talk him into reviving that one) can now be found at El Mas Chingon, and he's madder than ever. An excellent site for thoughtful opinions on social and political issues, as well as sports and beer reviews. Leave anything out, Robbie?

Jerimiah Bullfrog at GoddamnILoveAmerica is perhaps best described as the Country Ninja Stephen Colbert. If you want to laugh your butt off while being reassured he's keeping us safe, visit there often -- actually, that should read "visit thar often."

All Things Zebster, my personal and sports blog. Also where I tend to blog when I'm too busy to write professionally here.

LOL, Jeremiah!
Anyhow Zeb, good to see you back! I've been awol on your site for too long even though you've been pretty busy yourself. I am working on the indy texans blog still and someone moved it over to Wordpress which is a bit daunting so I haven't gotten 'fancy' yet. I am thinking of downloading Wordpress for myself so I can play around with it and understand it better so I won't mess up the indy texan blog. This is their new link:
I want to change the template because the template is pretty boring and with Wordpress you do have so much more options. Also, their blogroll is probably from a sample blog as it is totally not related to ours. I'll have to change that one and add all the usual 'suspect' independent blogs plus yours of course. Does that mean you've changed jobs or do you still have the same job? Are you not working the same hours? Anyhow, good to see you back and I'll remember to tell Linda that you 'almost' said hi on one of those conference calls. Which reminds me, I should join them myself because that's the way I learn more about things too.
Big hi to Shel!

Thank you for the plug, Zeb. Independent Opinions will come back soon. I'll give more details soon.

Zeb, I am having trouble stalking Robbie on the 'Net. He keeps jumping addresses!

As for Jeremiah, his blog rocks!
