    This is why I come to Daily Kos every morning.  This is why Daily Kos is my new newspaper.  This is one of the informative, well-researched, well-written articles that I look for, and that give this site its credibility.

    Diaries like "Your Candidate Sucks!" or its louder brother "YOUR CANDIDATE REALLY SUCKS!!!!" may have their place, but I think something like this should be put in a Kos Hall of Fame.  Maybe once there it will get some attention, and some would-be diarists will think twice before they latch their Caps Lock key and press submit.

    BTW, I've lurked here for over two years. After reading this, I think it may still be quite a while before I write my 'first-time' diary.

    The definition of insanity is running the same sig line over and over and expecting different results.

      Most of my diaries never go much of anywhere, and it's taken me quite a lot of practice to be able to put out something I felt good about.

      The diaries I like best are written by people who are really familiar with their subject - I've been accumulating information about this for over 25 years. You probably know a lot of interesting stuff from work or where you live or where you grew up - pick a narrow topic (like I didn't here :) ) and do a half dozen paragraphs, even if you don't post it.

      Even with comments, I write a lot more of them than I post.
