On June 16, 2007, continuous posting began at this blog. Since then a total of 460 posts have been made by a handful of contributors.
Some posts don't take much time to create, but countless hours are poured into drafting others. It takes considerable time to research issues and document facts. Then putting the information together in a concise, readable post takes more time.
We are just your average, run-of-the-mill neighbors, but we try to be good writers who improve our writing capabilities. We are not professional journalists and don't pretend to be. But we all like writing for you, our readers.
We contributors are women and men, younger and older, diverse in employment, interests, religion and education, and from all over Chisago County. Yet we have a common interest in life--conservatism, which we try to foster through this medium.
We are biased writers who are comfortable with our slant on life. We have a conservative slant on life and want you to come join us. We are convinced conservatives. By that I mean we have thought about our prejudices and presuppositions.
From this starting point, we write opinion and commentary, with an intent to convince you or at least make you think, knowing that we frequently are not up to that task.
Thank you to my fellow contributors who have made this blog a success. Ten thousand hits is a significant milestone even though it falls far short of countless other blogs.
Thanks to our readers, for without them, this blog would shrivel and die. Our readers are from all over the United States and around the world. They are only a click away, which is not any farther away than clicking from Chisago County, Minnesota, USA.
Congratulations to the Chisago County Republican Blog and all who make it what it is.
And now we welcome your comments.
