Two blogiversaries today

by thoughtfulconservative

UPDATE II: Make that four. Well technically it’s the 13th, but 3 years ago Tim Rock at The Other Side of My Mouth took up blogging and the right side of the blogosphere has not been the same since. :) Congrats, Tim.

UPDATE: Make that three. It must have been a good day to start a blog, living on the other side of twenty celebrates his third year.

Ann Althouse enters her fifth year of blogging. Ann blogs somewhat the same way I do, but I do lean more to political posts while she leans more to pop culture. But neither of us is limited to that genre.

Cindy Kilkenny: Fairly Conservative starts her second year of blogging at Fairly Conservative.

Another suburb gets the MMT touch

by thoughtfulconservative

The burgeoning Metro Milwaukee Today blog adds another “Sub-blog,” South Milwaukee Today, which will be under the guiding hand of Zach Wisniewski from Blogging Blue and a candidate for the South Milwaukee school board.

If you are from or have an interest in that area, here are a few blogs for you to check out, then.

Catching up on the blog roll

by thoughtfulconservative

A few more I’ve run across, the first,WAG THE DOG by Bryan Maersch whose tag line is “In Frankin Politics, the tail often WAGS the DOG!”

I can’t believe I hadn’t yet linked to Greg Kowalski’s blog Metro Milwaukee Today. He also has a Franklin blog on the same site, Franklin Today.

The effects of a (Jere)Me generation

by thoughtfulconservative

J. Gravelle, blogger at The Daily Scoff, has made his first appearance on the dead tree called the Journal Sentinel.

It’s well worth the short time it will take to read.

Quick Hits

by thoughtfulconservative

Emptying out my drafts folder:

Top 9 Good Habits For A Deep Recession – These are good habits when there’s no recession.

From the Pew Research Center, The Religious Makeup of Congress – a nice graphical representation of the religious beliefs of the Congress compared with the American public as a whole.

By the director of new media in Obama’s Minnesota campaign, Developing a New Media Strategy for Campaigns Large and Small. This, of course, would not contradict experienced hands as Wigderson and Fraley who tell me, depending on the campaign, that a candidate needs to go door-to-door, but would be in addition to that.

How Can Facebook Crack its Advertising Problem? One problem with Facebook–it appeals to older folks like me who aren’t enticed to click the ads.

Cory Leibman has resurrected Eye on Wisconsin. Cory is a “progressive,” but he’s also a thinker and I like to read thoughtful folks like myself. :)

Massachusetts has a new marijuana law.

It sounds simple, but David Capeless, president of the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association, said the new policy presented a thicket of questions and complications.

There, now I feel better.

Waukesha Carnival 12-14-2008

by thoughtfulconservative

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last roundup of significant posts in this section of the Cheddarsphere. First there was Thanksgiving and then a busy weekend, but here we are.

In state politics, Wisconsin state Senator Mary Lazich (chief aide Kevin Fischer?) writing at Conservatively Speaking reminds us of the obvious consequences if the QEO is done away with.

At Fraley’s Daily Takes, Brian Fraley notes the last WisOpinion: The Show for 2008.

In national events, Dad29 finds a state with a budget surplus!

Scott Feldstein is on the other side in the “Christmas Wars.”

The Asian Badger reminds us that you really can find everything on Craig’s List.

Concernedcitizen at Skeptics Anonymous notes that online retailers will be the next to seek a federal bailout and gives anecdotal evidence.

James Wigderson at Wigderson Library & Pub has some questions for the president-elect.

Cindy Kilkenny discusses airport security and specifically the TSA at Fairly Conservative.

Closer to home, Josh at Blog Waukesha gives a personal report on last week’s snow.

Dan Diebert asks why any business would want to go where it’s not wanted and why in this economy a community would want to stop one. You can read it at The D Spot.

In miscellaneous posts, at Spring City Chronicle, Huckleberry Dumbell remembers his Uncle Kelly, who spent his early time in the Navy recovering bodies at Pearl Harbor.

Tom Gehl, writing at Brookfield Basics, recommends a book for getting healthy.

Kyle Prast highly recommends Penzeys. So do I. She has her reasons and some pics at Practically Speaking.

That does it for this week. Tune in again next week for more of the best of Waukesha blogs.
