Howdy and welcome to my 1st blog entry!
THIS IS A BLOG ENTRY FROM MY WEBSITE: http://letstalkpolitics.org
You might be asking yourself, why start a political website? Why dedicate
the time to manage it? Why start it after the elections? Well, this
website combines some interests of mine. I like creating discussion
forums and programming. I also love politics and debating. So I
figured, why not combine the two? How successful the site will be is up
to how much promoting I do and content I put up. Hence the existence of
this blog. But getting the site to a successful point will not happen
over night. It will take time over hundreds of news report posts,
debates, questions, polls, etc. That is the fun of running this
website. Accomplishments won't happen instantaneously and work must be
put into it. Watching the site grow and develop from October 30th
to...lets say 6 months or a year from now is part of the excitement.
*pause for 15 minutes*
Oh yes, my last rhetorical question: "Why start this after the election?"
Well...to be honest, I was foolish and didn't think of doing this
during the primaries before or after "Super Tuesday." I thought of this
idea about 2 weeks before election day. At first I thought I would have
a severely limited audience, but then I realized that there is the post
election blues season where the political junkies (like myself) logon
to the computer to check CNN, MSNBC, Fox, and The Daily Show ( :lol: ) to see the latest news, polls, debates, and puns. Now, when we logon, we just see "Barack Obama, President."
That is a really good thing but sometimes getting to the climax is
better than the anti-climax. And no, I am not talking about sex at this
So...even after an election as historic as this one,
there is still a large audience of people who like to talk about
current events and debate people online. We could be the new home of
political junkies and maybe a home for people who are not suffering
post election blues. I think this site has a lot of potential and maybe
one day have Wolf Blitzer say on CNN, "We have here with us, Mr. Politics, Senior Political Correspondent from LetsTalkPolitics.org who
will discuss the recent election results of 2012. "
What will I talk about on my blog? Well, I will share my views on major
topics. I will discuss why I support or don't support a certain cause.
Explain why I think a certain way on a topic. Write about my theory of
government, debate anyone who comes across my path, and talk about
current events. I hope you'll read it and respond so the discussion can
continue. Maybe my post made you think about something you did not
think of or vice versa. Hey, you never know.
Here are the topics I'll write about in no particular order with the exception of the 2008 election.
Election of 2008/ Campaigns (First topic to discuss)
The Environment (Global Warming Crisis)
Stem Cell Research
I hope to write 1-2 blog entries a week. Sometimes I may write more or
less depending on how busy I am that week. Once again, thanks for
stopping by to read my blog.
