ALWAYS Include a Donation link! With poll!

by CJB

Hey, everyone.  Time to beat this drum again!  If you write a diary in support of one of our candidates, ALWAYS include a donation link for that person.  

If you write a diary against one of their candidates, ALWAYS include a donation link for whoever is running on our side.  

Even if only one person clicks that link, it's a donation that the candidate didn't have before.

Poll

Do you always add donation links to your election diaries?

SMHRB

by CJB

Hi everyone.  It's me again.  After so faithfully handling the schedule for these last several months, LIcenter has resigned the post and run off into the great outdoors. :)  So.  Here we are again.  But first, here's a love poem for Valentines Day:

Welcome again
to Saturday Morning Home Repair blogging,
where we talk about fixing houses
and the things in them
that are supposed to work for us.  
An ad hoc cadre of building professionals
and gifted amateurs attempt to answer questions
that arise from readers,
and offer encouragement and advice
for those inclined to do things for themselves,
if they can.  
We all do a lot of things,
collectively,
and can probably help out with insights
from our vast experience.
        <3
Or sometimes,
we just gab.
        <3
Sorry, I couldn't fit it all in a haiku.

WYFP?! Let's Talk About WYFP.

by CJB

First, if there was another diarist scheduled, and their WYFP shows up, I'll unpublish this one.  I'm writing this not knowing whether someone else is on the schedule, because the schedule is gone.  The diary that was in the queue that held the intro and the calendar has been deleted.  If someone did that with a plan to replace what is currently going on, I will fall at their feet in gratitude.  If not, then... I'm stumped.

I do know that annieli is up next week, and bluejerseymom is scheduled for September 6th.  But, that's all I know.  

I also know that last week got FUBARed and for that, I apologize.  Thanks to billssha for writing the real diary last week.  I never did go back until just now.
