Netroots Nation/ Brief Blog Break/ Shameless Self-Promotion Op

I’m leaving tomorrow — today, I guess, technically — to go to the Netroots Nation lefty political bloggers’ conference. I’ll blog while I’m there if I can — it’d be a little silly to go to a bloggers’ conference and not blog — but I’ll probably be pretty busy, and I may not be able to keep up my usual breakneck pace. (I’m coming back on Sunday.)

So let’s make this a Shameless Self-Promotion thread! Link us to a blog post you’ve done that you particularly like; tell us about a neat project you’re working on. Obvious commercial plugs for pharmaceuticals and such will be deleted; but if you’ve done something cool and want to brag on it, now’s the time, and here’s the place. See y’all soon!

    At the risk of being the opposite of what Greta intended:
    Hey, Greta, at Netroots Nation do you think you could visit this panel discussion and tell us what you think?
    To listen to organizer Frederick Clarkson talk (/write), it appears irreligious people don’t exist, and we certainly aren’t worth paying attention to when it comes to the separation of church and state.
    The panel sounds extremely ugly from an atheist-rights perspective. Want to check it out?

    I’ve been working on building an atheist social group in the middle of Iowa. It’s not about starting any sort of movement or trying to replicate the dogma and ritual of church. It’s about trying to replicate the social communities that churches have.
    So far it’s going really well and I figured that since we have link to this blog on our page, utilizing a shameless promotion post on this blog wouldn’t hurt as much.

    This blog is one of the main reasons a bunch of time got sucked up once I got into the blog world. I’m now recovering (not sure what step I’m on) and producing again rather than just reading. But I always read this one and have a link to it on mine.
    My site to recollect, document, pass on to my kids, rant about whatever (because I’m old and I can!), or just pass the time.
    Thank you, Greta Christina!!

    I’m on it, Rieux. The minute I saw the description of that panel, I just about hit the roof. I’m going to go in with an open mind… but I’m also going in loaded for bear. I’ll give a report when it’s done.

    I’ve moved my blog to preserve my anonymity, and one of my first and favorite posts there might be something that you’d be interested in, Greta, considering your love of BtVS.
    It’s a commentary on the end of Angel Season Four and how it’s a parallel for new atheists coming out of conservative Christian backgrounds. The first time I watched it, I didn’t even get that impression. The second time, I wondered why I didn’t notice!
