GETTING BRAVE ENOUGH TO BLOG
When you have a chance, check out my other blog. The link on my name (granny) will take you there. It's also listed on the sidebar of isamericaburning. I say a lot over there.
Thanks for the kind words.
I don't think you need comment moderation though. That's when you have to look at every comment before you allow it to show up.
That's what the little trash can at the bottom of each comment is for. If someone is truly evil, pick them up by their ears and toss them in the trash.
Mixed in with the family stuff on granny are a few political comments but the two blogs are very different. Granny came first. That's how I met Worried American. She already had isamericaburning up and running and invited me to join her.
I'm very involved in local stuff. I belong to moveon.org and PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and they keep me busy. I write letters to the local newspaper and to my elected officials.
I've been staying away from Iraq and many of the related issues because Worried American does it so well and we'd end up duplicating. We managed to do that once the other day (lol).
My primary focus is on civil rights in the United States, the treatment of the disadvantaged among us, and the abuse of power. With mixed race grandchildren and greatgrandchildren (two in special ed) and a gay son, much of it is personal.
Simplified, I'm your typical 60's flaming liberal, just a little older than the hippies and without the drugs.
I've been involved with civil rights, war protests, women's rights, etc. for years but had gotten away from the fray for a while. Now I'm back.
I told WA just the other day that I'd try to do a little more writing to go with the linking. Sometimes, it's just a matter of not enough hours in the day.
Oh, you might want to think about subscribing to bloglines. It's free, it's connected to blogger (they're both google sort of) and you can list the blogs you like and bloglines will pop up and tell you when there's a new post.
As you move around in the blogosphere a little more, it will be handy thing to have. Our sidebar is full of good blogs and we add more as we come across them. No one can read them all constantly but they all have a lot to say. Do you know you can click on the name of a commenter and it will take you to their blog?
See what happens when you ask me to write? I never stop. It's a running joke amount those who know and love me.
