Shorter Posts & More Pictures For Holiday Blogging—I Am, In Essence, Serving As My Own Guest Blogger


Texas Liberal will be posting each day through the holidays. I have such regard for the blog reading public that I can’t let my shop go dark for even a few days.

However, I’ll be writing some shorter posts than normal and relying to a greater extent on pictures. I hope that you the blog reader will not take offense. I will resume more normal postings as 2008 begins.

For 2008, I plan a great deal of political history to help place the ongoing campaign in context. And, also, because it is interesting.

I’ll be writing about, as I did in the past year, books, personal relationships, some Houston and Texas politics and news to keep it at least a bit local, and, of course, about marine mammals and other sea creatures.

There will also be plenty of blogging here about Campaign 2008 and questions of political science and political philosophy.

A new goal for next year, as some political blogs across the country move into a type of adjunct or symbiotic relationship with the mainstream political parties, is to link more often to independent blogging voices in Texas, the U.S and around the world.

I think it is up to individual blog readers, more so even than the people who own and operate blogs, to define what the so-called “netroots” really are. But, as always, getting past the “mainstream” requires a bit of extra effort. I want to help with that effort.      

Thanks for reading Texas Liberal. Please have a nice and safe holiday.

  2. Neil-

    I dare say that shirking your blogging duties over the holidays is indeed offensive — and just plain irresponsible. All Americans (not just Texans) rely on your astute observations and sharp political analysis 24/7/365.

    It’s simple: you take time off from blogging; America crumbles.

    Happy Holidays, Neil. My best to you and yours.
