Save Top Five!

One of the oldest and longest-running humor sites on the Web needs your help! It need fundings to continue. I've enjoyed Top Five's lists for several years. The lists are compiled from contributions sent in from fans of the site, and proper credit is given to the snarkers. It'd be a huge loss to Internet humor for Top Five to fold.

The Other Side of the Writer: Political Blogging

One of the political blogs I post on, BlueGrassRoots, was selected to represent Kentucky at the Democratic National Convention last month. The site is sort of like DailyKos, with people posting their diaries for others to read and review. Most of the members are Kentuckians, although not all of them are.

I had the great honor of attending the Convention as one of the reporters representing the site: media pass and everything! Twenty-three years after getting my degree in journalism, I had my first press gig.

There were three of us, so we took turns for who got which night at the Pepsi Center. I covered Tuesday night and got to see all the Hillary action. I also got a pass for the final night at Invesco Field, where I got to see Obama deliver his speech from a skybox seat! It was an experience of a lifetime.
