Quick Emergency Bleg Update: $230 down $370 to go

Thank you for my best month ever

I'd like to thank all of my readers and listeners for the last two months on the blog. December is traditionally a slow month for bloggers but I was just 35 hits below my January 2010 numbers (the Scott Brown Election coverage). January 2011 was even better.

2010 in review (or why you should advertise on DaTechGuy on DaRadio)

I must be doing something right

The more people on the left who feel the need to counter me, the more likely I'm being effective. I am very proud to be compared to Jim Hoff who I've met and interviewed and is a fine Catholic Gentleman. I look forward to the other side continuing to spend time attempting to counter me. … Continue reading I must be doing something right

100,000 hits and counting

Today I have reached 100,000 hits for the year thus far. That is nearly double my total hits for all of 2009. It's not quite Stacy McCain's 1,000,000 hits a year but we are certainly heading in that direction. I want to thank all of you who have stopped by this year so far. I'll … Continue reading 100,000 hits and counting

A reader FYI: The balance between data and presentation

Today I have several meetings and events here in GA to hit put an evening with friends, I hope to schedule a few posts in between and get the data loaded.

Still in search of that elusive $800 per wk…

For those of you who have been here awhile you are aware of the "I'll do it myself Tucker Fund" that doubled as a CPAC jar in the quest to send me down south.

I heard from Eric Erickson from RedState concerning CPAC credentials

...telling me I would be hearing from him this morning concerning CPAC blogger credentials. That however is quickly becoming a moot point. I am $800 shy with now 4 days to go and the only reason why I'm that close is that a guest room has been offered to me. In the last 7 days … Continue reading I heard from Eric Erickson from RedState concerning CPAC credentials

Answer: Expecting Charles Johnson to issue a correction

Question: What is the ultimate expression of wishful thinking? Ah the people at Breitbart's Big Journalism prove that mindless optimism is not confined to myself and Lt. George: While it is true Mr. Johnson did not use the precise phrase “white nationalist convention” as was noted in Weigel’s article, he said something very similar in … Continue reading Answer: Expecting Charles Johnson to issue a correction

CPAC Funding update

Well today has been an interesting day in that regard. Yesterday I found myself at just under 9% of the goal set to get me there. Since then three people have kicked in, including to my surprise a local businessman who I had just told the story to in passing. That has boosted me to … Continue reading CPAC Funding update
