People ask why I write a blog that no one reads.
I think my mom still reads it. There are a lot of better blogs than mine, and quite a few worse ones. I really do wish I had the time to read more blogs, separate more sheep from goats, and link to good stuff. Right now, I'm working on my thesis/World War II censorship book, some historical consulting and research work, doing much more around the house, and writing a few magazine pieces. Until last week, I was home with my littlest kid every afternoon. I really enjoyed that, but my three-year-old won't tolerate computer use. I did, however, develop some expertise on Dora the Explorer.
Anyway, maybe this isn't a real blog, in the sense that it is part of a "blogosphere" of inter-connected Internet pundits. On the other side of the coin, I'm not a Tory blogger, or a Liberal one, or an NDPer. I'm a libertarian who supports the war in Afghanistan but thinks Iraq is a mistake, a conservative with a belief that poor people can work together and get out of poverty through co-operative business and housing enterprises, and a centralist who believes in self-determination for Quebec.
