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:


Yesterday, NYBri announced the winner of our logo contest, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results.

During the contest, we received nearly 1000 votes and we are incredibly appreciative of everyone's interest and support. Thank you.

For those who missed it, here is the winning design and tag line:


From the day we announced this campaign for the US Senate from Nebraska, we have wanted to include everyone, because this isn't just my campaign, it's your campaign for Nebraska's Brand of Change. And the logo contest was just step one in that process.


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 am inviting everyone to come to our Web Site and read about your campaign.

However, we have a challenge coming upon us quickly. The Democratic Primary in Nebraska is on May 13th. That's just six weeks away.

Voters need to hear much more about our campaign. They need to know that we’ve united ranchers and environmentalists, young people and seniors, and Democrats, Independents, and Republicans.

They need to know that there’s a candidate in this race who knows how hard it is to raise a family on a tight budget. They need to know that newspapers across Nebraska endorsed us during our historic 2006 congressional run.

In short, we need to raise the resources to get our message out to the Democratic voters in Nebraska. That's where this diary comes in.

Yesterday, we launched a fund raising drive with the modest goal of raising $25,000 by this Monday at midnight...and people have responded. We have raised over $11,000 in the last 36 hours, but we haven't reached our goal... So, please help us heat up our brand with a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more so we can call our drive a success.

Help us win your campaign for Nebraska's Brand of Change.
