Update

Last month was another big one for the blog!  My post on Plato's Republic seems to be going viral in the blogosphere.  Since other blog authors so graciously linked to me, I will reciprocate.

Craig Cavanaugh at Keep It Simple Survival did a great write up and extended the topic of the noble lie a little further.   He put his own personal take on it, and I have to say, it is one of his best posts.  Be sure to check it out.

Bill Nye at The Elector Retards linked to Craig which linked to me.  Bill's post talks about how the III% crowd turned on him.

Western Rifle Shooters Association linked to all three of us.

And finally, Ornery Bastard did a little write up on his blog about my post.

The links provided above go to the actual post I am talking about.  Be sure to check out the other material on these sites as well.


Also, in the comment section of my last post I found a blog that I would like to introduce everyone to.  It is called So Far From Heaven and it is authored by Old Jules.  Check it out!


I have been writing here and there and I am now working on what I think will be another really great post.  I have started and scrapped a few more that I thought were substandard ramblings.  I may resurrect them from the dead at some point after I rework them a little bit.

That being said, other than little updates like this one, posting will be less frequent until I come up with some quality material for you, the reader.  Expect maybe one or two per month.  If my last post taught me anything, it is this:  People want quality, not quantity.  I have had 4000 unique hits on my last post in 15 days.  That is more than the previous two months combined.  For this little blog, that is pretty darn good.  I am now striving to only write my best.

Additionally, I am considering other ways of getting my message out there.  I would like to branch out into other forms of media.  I am learning some new software that will allow me to create original videos and possibly a podcast.

Finally, I have been contacted by a few authors who are urging me to write a book.  I have one in the works, but it is slow going.  I may put that book on the back burner for a while and do some partner work with another author.  He has a really good idea for a fiction book, so I am exploring my options.

Hang in there, I am working on it.

See you at Galt's Gulch!

Beware, the podcast is rather time consuming. It was for me anyway...
