When I blogged for Barack on my.barackobama.com, I was somewhat limited in subject matter and I tried to follow their instruction to be positive. That was and is difficult when Barack’s opponents will say or repeat ANYTHING that they believe will damage the President or advance their cause. I have always tried to stick with the truth, because then I don’t have to remember what I said. Barack’s opponents don’t care; like Mitt Romney, they will say anything at any time, darn the consistency.
Well having my own blog now, my hands are no longer tied to subject matter or to being always positive. I prefer being positive, but I will answer Barack’s critics in kind when necessary. As a member of the Barack Obama Truth Team, I will continue to stick with the truth. I was examining my numbers today, and I found that having a site of my own was truly liberating:
4.5 years of my.barackobama.com 1200 posts 265 annual average
5.0 years of his site and my site combined 1675 posts 325 annual average
6.0 years projected total 2200 posts 365 annual average
After this election cycle, I will have averaged one post per day for six straight years. I hope then that with a Democratic House and Senate and Barack in the White House, it won’t be necessary to post so often. If we have a Republican sweep, I think that I will surrender to despair. If we continue the present stalemate in Washington, DC, it will be necessary to continue at my present pace or accelerate my writing.
