Check out "Current Observations"

I'm adding a fellow Washington resident to my blogroll. Don Bangert pens Current Observations. He's been kind enough to check out Yak Attack and make a few comments along the way.

Don presents interesting perspective and cool graphics. Mosey on over to his blog and check it out.

Back in February Mark, from South Puget Sound Libertarian, said, "Take a look at a blog that is new to me: Yak Attack."

I did, and liked what I read. I immediately added you to my Feedreader and your blog has become part of my daily reading.

Thank you for the bump! Keep up the good writing.

You are very welcome, Don. I've been reading your blog almost every day, as well. In the land of the latte, there aren't many libertarian types around. We need to band together =).

Yes. A few years ago, I went to a meeting of the local (Thurston County) Libertarian Party just to check it out. I had just moved here. I asked the local party chieftain how many capital-L Libertarians there were in the state. He said, "Around a thousand." I don't know if he was even close but you're right, lewlew, we do have to stick together. I often think I'm mostly talking to myself on my blog. And I'm probably right. Best wishes.

Mark, you're talking to me on your blog. I really enjoy what you have to say i.e. I get the points you're trying to hit home. I'm glad I'm not the only one going, "Wha...??!"

we do have to stick together.

Yes, we do =). I appreciate your visits to Yak Attack. I hope you'll continue to stop by and read some.

About a month ago, I was feeling frustrated that even though I blog and blog and blog nothing seems to ever change. Then, while listening to a radio program (Jerry Hughes - see the sidebar at my site for a link), I realized that education was where the solution lay. That is, we need to educate the masses as to what is going on in the world right under their noses. Our blogs serve that purpose, well. The goal should be to expose our blogs to new people. To this end, I had printed up 100 color business cards that contained the logo of my blog, my blog's URL, and my personal contact information. I resolved to try to rid myself of these cards within 12 months. I reasoned that if I could give away these 100 cards, I would have spoken to 100 people about the cause of liberty. If I hadn't--well that means I must be preaching to the choir. What good does that do? None! (As an added bonus: Since I started this project, I've noticed my site traffic has gone up.)

Mark, you're talking to me on your blog.

Thanks, lewlew. I'm afraid I don't get out as much as Don and I never had business cards or any other cards except those I made in print shop in junior high when I was 12 years old. They're all gone. :)
