Rethinking Fairly Conservative

I’ve decided this marriage between me, the big mouth, and you, the reader, isn’t being designed to last forever. Right now my commitment to Fairly Conservative lasts through the November elections with an option to renew.

It seems like a good idea to get that into the open from the start.

I have a true love/hate relationship with political blogging. I love watching the nuances of a campaign and drawing conclusions as to that campaign’s effectiveness. I hate campaign trolls who refuse to believe someone wouldn’t be in love with their candidate. I also really dislike the constant angst that comes from all politics all the time. That’s why I’ve broken the site into three and will keep for a while. might find a new webmaster, too, in a year or so. We’ll see. I still want to get the travel site up and running, but now recognize next year might be better timing.

In the meantime, put on your seatbelt. Randy in Richmond is expected back later this week. He’ll be doing what he does best: watching the national scene with a decidedly very conservative eye. I’ll be following the state campaigns, but reserve the right to weigh in on Randy’s territory! This week, in fact, I meet for lunch with a new acquaintance who happens to be working on a gubernatorial race.

Yes, I’m available. I listen to reason, remember? Call me if you want to bend my ear, but be warned: It’s always my opinion that lands on this site.

By the way, it looks like the decision to split the content between three places is a good one. Watching the traffic I can tell some of you really never cared about what was planned for dinner. I’m glad to accommodate.

You’ll be noticing some site changes soon. Hopefully they will make it easier to find information about candidates in this upcoming election.
