Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I just published a diary to the queue
of Readers and Book Lovers.

It's an Indigo Kalliope diary.

More information below the squiggly.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I was asked to continue the legacy
of C J Campbell,
also known as
now deceased.

was the driving force behind the Daily Kos poetry group,
Indigo Kalliope.

Since my ramblings are in free verse,
and seen as poetry by most,
(but not my wife)
I was asked to fill in,
at least just this once.

I'm writing this diary
to "pimp" the other diary
to my few regular readers,
and to anyone who likes chicken coops,
and comes here for that topic.

I want to combine
the simple,
feels right concept
of doing something,
a little or a lot,
towards sustainability,
with the whole artsy culture
of serious poets,
or fun poets,
or rambling poets,
like me.

I want to combine
absolutely joyful,
surgical sterilization
with feeding ourselves,
but fewer of us,
(because of the surgery)
and writing passionate poetry,
passionate words about fewer humans,
fewer folks,
and feeding ourselves,
and a revolution
brought about
by small family groups,
three hundred years from now,
taking control,
because they will need to control
the world they live in.

Local government.

Please join us
at the poetry group.

because of a possible misunderstanding,
I'm not certain whether the poetry diary
will be published at 4 PM Tuesday,
or 4 PM Thursday.

it might be achieved through poetry.

Please excuse
the short diary,
with no links.

I need to get to bed,
but I wanted to post a B. C. C. diary,
to continue the movement.

Keep the faith;
we probably can't do all that much,
but we can inspire the next generations,
and they will,
by necessity,
search for answers,
and some of them may find some ideas,
here on the servers of Daily Kos.

Thanks for reading.
