Welcome to the Blogosphere

So...It has been quite an adventure, this 'Blogosphere'. The night I started this blog, which BTW I think no one has looked at, my world has been rocked. It started with the film and has expanded exponentially from there. I used the internal search for blogs to find what others were saying or thinking about the movie, which led many, many places. Finally, I landed and have set up house at "firedoglake". The learning curve for blogging is intense but I'm beginning to get the hang of it with the caveat that I still know very little.

I always get fired up about politics during an election cycle, it's unavoidable. Watching "Loose Change" made me question so many things about the 'main stream media' and all the places I was getting information. I thought of myself as 'a progressive' and thought I was getting good info from NPR, BBC,CBC, and a little NYT. Boy was I a mook. But it's getting better now and I'm reading from sources I would never have found if it weren't for FDL. The point is, I believe I have alot more control over the content of the information I'm recieving rather than having to decontruct and critically read what I was getting before. Decontruction and critical thought are still part of the mix, but now I have so much more to work with. Thanks to the Left Blogosphere for all that you do, and keep doing it.
