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:

This is a repost of a previously published diary. Tickets are still available - get one right away! Oh, and did I mention it's free?!

Yes, it's evil me again, tempting you to go out on the town on a work night! This one's not exactly a meetup. It's a benefit, with food and drink, and some pretty exciting honorees in attendance. But you won't have to pay a penny! Come below the Cheeto for more info:

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 hope you've all heard of Living Liberally, a great organization that promotes the social and artistic sides of progressive politics. Those of us who have been NYC meetup organizers have partnered with them on a number of events, and most recently the delightful Juliana Forlano, aka Ironic News, attended one of our meetups to tell us about the Laughing Liberally comedy shows.

Living Liberally is having their annual benefit fundraiser this Thursday evening, May Day (!). This party would normally cost a minimum of $100 to attend, but because Daily Kos is a sponsor, we have been given 10 free tickets to this exciting event, available to the first 10 9 Kossacks who reply.

 Hosts include Dr. Joseph Stiglitz, State Senator Brad Hoylman, recently elected City Council Member Ben Kallos, Bob Fertik, the aforementioned Juliana Forlano, and Justin Krebs, National Director of Living Liberally.

Here are the details:
