  •  It's just a game to them... (none)
    But we can learn to play it and win.

    I touched on it in a diary yesterday.  There will be more information later in the series.

    Suggestions for how to get future diaries on the recommended list will be appreciated.

    •  getting recommended (none)
      I can't say how to get on the recommended list (since I've never done it before, myself!) but here's one suggestion:

      Make the lead (the part before the fold) more enticing and less didactic.  I just read "Verbal Self-Defense for Dems - Don't you even CARE?(3)" and liked it.  

      But the lead didn't say anything about politics.  Why not start with a snappy example of how it would work with a real issue.

      Also, I wouldn't worry so much about getting on the recommend list.  Most people around here have high speed connections and set the display options for "recent diaries" to 50 (which is, I believe, the max).  In the time it takes a diary to scroll to 50, a lot of people will read it.  Probably a lot more than you think or would guess from the number of comments and/or recommends.
