There have been some odd comments on Left in the West about why I started a new blog, whether I was kicked off, and what the reasons might be.
I want to make it perfectly clear that I started a new blog because I thought it would be fun. I thought it would be interesting to have a blog with a different take, to add a different voice to the mix of excellent blogs already out there and increase the discussion. Many of them are included in my blogroll to the right.
I did not get “kicked off” Left in the West, nor did I have some kind of ideological disagreement with Matt and Jay. I think that they and their blog are fabulous.
I just didn’t want the effort and research I put into the scoops and posts I wrote to potentially languish on a back page. I also thought that it would be interesting to have a forum for analysis of political actions and looks at news behind the stories reported in the Montana paper. This is why I set up this blog.
Thanks for reading and speaking your mind here. I also will be having guest posters on occasion to increase the amount of interesting content this blog brings to you. I you have something to say or are interested in being a guest poster, please let me know.
