Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics


How long have you been sitting out there reading this and other blogs? Have you spoken up? Have you ever participated in one of these political websites?

Years ago I would check in with Kos and read the front page. I never really considered getting involved. I did not have a computer at home so would occasionally surf whenever I had free time at work.

After purchasing a computer a few years ago, I began to take more interest in what the internet has to offer. This brought me back to kos, salon, politico and so on. Kos was too big for me to feel safe to post. Additionally, I found that I did not care for the tone at kos any longer. I finally found MyDD and felt at home there for much of the primaries.

I am astonished that I did not start posting on MyDD until late winter of 2008. I finally felt I had something to say and to be perfectly honest, I am not especially proud of some of my first comments. Ah, the primary wars. Will I ever feel so alive again?

I enjoyed MyDD until is became apparent that it descending into a dysfunctional site and the unhealthy elements were pulling me in.

Motley Moose came along at exactly the right time for me. In July or August I was invited to join a group of amazing people to start this blog. I am still humbled that I have been given this opportunity and hope that I have been able to adequitely serve this community. All of you have given me gifts beyond articulation. I wish I could participate more and return to serious discourse again, but for now I will remain Hollede, and hopefully help people laugh, sing and dance.
