Last week I announced that I would try different ‘themes’ as I posted this weekend, in response to comments about the font, the ‘lack of flash’, and attraction of the site. Many of you responded with very helpful comments regarding the existing blog, including font size, the need for ‘flashiness’, and various additions that would be helpful. Thank you all for your input. One of my companions, The Fox, favors less time on the computer and more time outside, even if the high temperature is zero… 😮
Well, I searched all available themes on wordpress.com and did not find one to my liking…and remembered why I selected this one. My other companion, Miss Lucky, who I cannot see in the dark at all, suggests that I ‘get over trying to please everyone, get off my a** and come outside and play’. Then she gets cold paws and whines. 🙄
This site is deliberately not ‘busy’, primarily because I do not have the time to really scan the news (as I should), have difficulty writing ‘short pieces’, 😳 and because fundamentally this site produces more research articles than news bites. I truly am interested in writing on the Constitution; in doing so I learn and hope I share with readers as much as I can.
Technically, my lengthy articles are not exactly suitable for ‘blogs’…not only are they very long, but often very detailed. It takes a long time to produce a quality article; perhaps my standards are too high. Nevertheless, you can do a quick scan of my articles, but if you are drawn in here, you are likely to read the links and spend some time thinking about and/or commenting on the article. My hope is that all of this work raises the pertinent set of questions and points of inquiry that assist our movement to restore our Constitutional Republic. I firmly believe it is within our reach, and am thankful that so many have awaken. Yes, so many.
These are the things I will do to improve this blog, based on readers’ suggestions:
- Actively build the blog roll, adding more links to Constitution and liberty-based, action oriented websites, research sites, and independent, regional or international news sites of interest. Your suggestions are always welcome. I have already added Texans for Accountable Government; the Fully informed Jury Association; Reboot the Republic; Webster’s 1828 English dictionary; the Founders documents, a site for original research; and The Sheriff Project, to name a few. Drop on by!
- Add a weekly article that pulls from various activities and issues around the country that describes what it is like to be a constitutional citizen or adherent in unconstitutional times.
- Add a monthly summary that pulls together the different threads I have started here, like the series’ in fascism, tyranny, the undoing of the constitution, the Articles of Freedom and Continental Congress 2009, the Patriot toolbox, etc.
- Provide a block announcement for readers to enlarge the font on the screen.
Right now, it is all about the Constitution. Those Americans who feel the angst and know that something is wrong have been wrongly educated about the Constitution. Their angst needs a framework for expression, and that is the Constitution. Counter-educate for liberty, it is something real Americans can understand.
Start a conversation…maybe over this bumper sticker which you can get by clicking on the poster! The revolution is here, let’s welcome this change with open arms. The tree of liberty needs water.
A great thanks to readers for visiting here, and a special thanks to those who comment for their many contributions to this blog.
