So, my blog was originally titled “Pollitics” but since a website that wasn’t updated in five years had the title; I had to make a slight edit.
Well….WELCOME TO POLLITICS TODAY!
I am an ardent follower of politics with a distinct liberal bias. I won’t hide my beliefs and will stick to them in most cases. However, I am always open to debate and discussion and am a firm believer in that people can change their minds.
However, don’t expect too many blogs on policy. This will mostly be about polling, political news & speculation. Someone say something controversial? Expect reaction here.
I love news as nerdy as that may sound and I don’t expect this to be a place where mega-news is ever broken. I am also currently entering my senior year of college where I major in Sports Management and run cross country/track year-round. So obviously I am well-qualified to discuss politics. I also love following baseball and football, as well as track, hockey and college football.
Also some other tidbits. You can follow the blog @PolliticsToday on Twitter. It was originally posted to be a “bot” for the site, but I often check in to re-plug articles, talk to followers, etc. I really recommend, unless you have a WordPress account, to follow the Twitter page as you can get key updates there. You can also like the blog on Facebook as shown by the link.
Now I do have some goals on what I want the future of the blog to be. I would love for this site to become one of those, highly commented on blogs that bring together progressives from across the country. I am big into reading people’s comments and I’d be thrilled to hear from many of you.
I also will now be looking at attempting to make this site a bit more inclusive. For the first 100+ posts, everything was done by myself. That includes posting, plugging, advertising, tweeting, etc. I will always be “in charge” of the site, but as it’s grown a tad; I’d like to get a few more people involved with the site to increase traffic and lighten my personal workload.
I also want to focus a bit more on interviews than the current news pieces and opinion articles that I usually bring to the table. I would also like to focus more of this blog on interviews and profiles, but that’s a work in progress.
But, I hope you enjoy the ride.
