This past week and the next two or three weeks are going to contain much hecticity for me; so you may have noticed that my blog has been on hiatus for this little while. And so now I am forced to face the possibility that I cannot always maintain the pace that I would actually like.
I am, therefore, looking for a co-blogger or two to help keep up the activity levels. Volunteers for this noble task should have many of the following characteristics:
- Shares something like my political outlook (something called "progressive" in some way)
- Writes with decorum and attention to detail, but entertainingly.
- Writes often, but not always, about politics, particularly foreign policy, political procedures and party machinations, electoral politics/reform/mechanisms, matters of economics and class, and so on.
- Does not necessarily have to write about Canada, but it might be nice. (Québec writers, including sovereigntists, are weclome, but as long as we don't get too fixated by a certain argument, if you know what I mean.)
- Willing to write two or three times a week, at least, but can take a break.
Naturally, I expect people to be beating down this door, given the many multitudes of adoring fans I clearly have. So don't feel offended if I don't pick you. BUT these criteria are not fixed in stone. I want someone who shares my overall outlook because I don't want to be outnumbered on this blog like I was at Points of Information. But if you feel like you'd rather join me than start your own blog, leave your name in the comments and ideally a link to some sample of what you already write, and I'll contact you if I think you should be a co-blogger here.
If you already have an internet presence, and it's not your real name, we can just use that one. (I prefer you remain pseudonymous on this blog). Otherwise (or if you want to start over), you can either be a Vala like me or a functionary in some totalitarian regime, preferably someone (tragi)comical.
UPDATE: I should add that if you already have a blog but occasionally wouldn't mind writing on mine, feel free to mention that.
