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.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Tonight on TDS, Denis Leary,Denis Leary's Merry F#%$in' Christmas; and on TCR, Sir Ian Mckellen (Gandalf)The Hobbit.
I'm ready for SunReturn any day now...
I don't think I'm even going to pretend this week.
Can't stand Denis Leary; uninterested in baseball guy; the usual Hmmmm... about Alan Simpson & Chris Christie. With the possible exception of Simpson, looks like Jon's having Lovefest Week to match Stephen's Hobbit Week.
BREAKING: I prepared for Hobbit Week by doing some light Tolkien research...for the last 1,924 weeks. @colbertreport, 11:30pm
And while I love Stephen's geekness (and what better use for his very own tv show?), I doubt I can come up with a whole weeks' worth of Hobbittry. It's just not quite my flavor of geek, y'know. But should you want more info, RottenTomatoes has a Hobbit Headquarters, and ColbertNewsHub has the usual detail (plus, FYI, an Adphent Calendar).
