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 week, Heartland Revolution hit the road to Wisconsin! We were on the ground in the state capital rallying for workers’ rights. Rights like collective bargaining are essential for millions of working class Americans and, once again, Republicans either don’t get it, or just don’t care. So, the people took to the streets to make their voices heard!

Protecting American families from corporate fat-cats is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy working-class. That’s why Heartland Revolution is dedicated to fighting for Blue Collar workers where it is needed most.

On Thursday and Friday we were in Ohio where workers are rallying to secure their rights. We’ll keep you updated on facebook and twitter @heartlandrev. These demonstrations, while not romantic in the eyes of the national media, are perfect examples of regular people coming together to effect change.

As the working families revolution rages on tonight as the protests continue to grow in Wisconsin and now it is spreading to several states throughout America. This coming Monday protests are scheduled in Indianapolis, Indiana with the following schedule:

Monday, February 21, 2011 beginning at 9:00 a.m. (*NOTE TIME CHANGE DUE TO RTW HEARING)
Tuesday, February 22, 2011 beginning at 10:00 a.m.
Wednesday, February 23, 2011 beginning at 10:00 a.m.
Thursday, February 24, 2011 beginning at 10:00 a.m.

As of right now protests are going to start in Iowa on Tuesday, February 22 at 1 p.m. on the west steps of the Iowa Capitol.

As of right now protests are going to start in Ohio on Tuesday, February 22 at 1 p.m. at the Ohio Capitol.

Stay tuned as more details arrive and by all means do everything you can to mobilize to any of these protests to help protect working families.
