When I started getting politically active online right after the 2008 presidential election, there were a few of us and a bunch of Obama astroturfers who would hit the comments section of articles about conservatives and conservatism. We engaged in "small aircraft" dogfights. Between November 2008 and July 2009, the conservative blogosphere exploded into the densely populated area it is today. There are hundreds, probably thousands of conservative blogs now that compete for readership.
And my little ole blog is just one of many.
I have great followers. They give me excellent feedback on my blog. If I didn't work so many hours, I'd be calling some of their internet radio talk shows and showing them support for all they do for the cause of taking back America.
This post is not a complaint. This post is a compliment to the many great conservatives out there who put it out there every day. It's great when I see any of us getting covered by the mainstream media or the new media. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone who you've tweeted with or exchanged comments with to get their name mentioned or their article posted on a high traffic site or on a program like Hannity or Rush.
Keep up the great work. If you don't see your site on the left sidebar, follow this blog and I'll put you on.
You all are part of Patrick's World USA. When I go to rallies, I see Patrick's World. All the exiles from the Shining City on A Hill are there and it reminds me that even if the city doesn't shine right now, its people still do. And we are the ones who will take it back.
