    Part of our game plan, being that we're a business focused on state and local politics.
    Which is not quite the same as your profile:
    provocateur, artisan, rebel, dreamer, doer.
    Occupation: media
     
    And there's no website (personal or business) in your profile, and I have no way to google your business to find out what it is.

    You know, with the same amount of time and keystrokes you could have said, 'My partners and I have This Business in MD, where we work on X'.

    But the fact is, You (plural) are a business that focuses on state/local politics AND you have posted a diary here presenting an activist opportunity for Kossites WITHOUT TELLING THEM about your business involvement.

    A friendly little announcement, at the top of the diary, maybe with a link to a previous diary in which you described your business, would have done the job of 'Full Disclosure'.

    And even when asked, you don't identify your political business in a diary about a political action that you have suggested to the people who are going to roll out ACA locally.   Dubious, imo.

      Business not being listed in my profile is because I didn't join this site to promote my business (and in fact the business is a new one). Nor do I stick around here as a matter of business. It's not my focus or reason to be here at dkos and never will be.

      You can see my business here http://boldbluemedia.com
      Here's my Facebook page if you're up on FB

      I publish a monthly magazine focused on state and local democratic and progressive politics which you an access a sample of and information about from the website or from this link

      Our official launch was July 1, 2013.

      I introduced the idea here in early May. We (my husband and I who are the only employees of this startup right now) got a warm reception.

      Since then I've been a bit less frequent here. Running this thing with two people is a full time job for 10 people but this is my Internet family where people know me and care about me and I know and care about them.

      I hope this is enough info for you.
