Hey, all.  Among the most engrossing procrastinatory activities I've been doing lately is keeping up with blogging Kossacks.  Perhaps of late you would rather not be associated with dKos (I don't even want to get into that right now), but I have culled from these fine pages well over 100 blogs belonging to dKos readers and participants.  That is admittedly a small percentage of the 9522 of us, but it's a lot.

Below the fold I've put in the actual links as well as the code for you to add to your website if you'd like.

By the way, Kos has my last list up linked from the main page.  I'm hopeful her can update it soon.

As always, email me (folkbum at hotmail dot com) to either ask to get on the list or request a text file with the code.  I'm sure I'm still missing scores of you, but I won't know it if you don't tell me.

    You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

    Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

    ?

    More Tagging tips:

    A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

    Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

    If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

    Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

    Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
    Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
    Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
    Rescue this diary, and add a note:
    Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
    Choose where to republish this diary. The diary will be added to the queue for that group. Publish it from the queue to make it appear.

    You must be a member of a group to use this feature.

    Add a quick update to your diary without changing the diary itself:
    Are you sure you want to remove this diary?
    (The diary will be removed from the site and returned to your drafts for further editing.)
    (The diary will be removed.)
    Are you sure you want to save these changes to the published diary?

      It's like a full-time job sometimes, I tell you.

        •  The level of confidence (none)
          and certainty that it takes to assume that strangers care about what you think enough to produce a blog (aside from the expense and the technical know-how) is pretty great, even though I know most folks around these parts take it for granted. I don't have that level of certainty and I'm not sure that "staking out on my own" provides anything more (except an ego boost) that my lurking and commenting on dKos doesn't.  The world needs masses along with leaders, and being part of the informed and thinking masses is as important (and sometimes more difficult) task as being one of the "opinion leaders" it seems to me.

          My real skill is listening and making sense of stuff anyway, not in producing original material.

          •  is that reasonable? (none)
            AGG, I think you may be the most frequently complimented poster on dKos. I hope you at least have confidence that what you provide here is useful to people.

            On the other hand, I very much understand your belief that you have a greater strength in thinking through and responding to the thoughts of others than in striking out on your own. I've considered starting a blog myself, but there is much more (self-imposed) pressure to get it right when leading a blog...it can be paralyzing.

            •  Yes, I can tell you do (none)
              understand what I mean...thanks.  I'm not just trolling for complements when I voice that.

              thanks..

            but let cost not be a burden.  i've got dead server space and mt software ready to go if you ever want to do it.  i'd offer that to you any day.  yours are always some of the most insightful i see.  and i know i've seen you produce volumes of original material.  maybe you were prompted to response but its all been original.  anyway, the offer is there if you ever want to take it up.

              that's very generous of you.

              If I get to the point where I feel I'm capable, I'll take you up on your offer.

          •  Careful with your assumptions (none)
            to assume that strangers care about what you think enough to produce a blog

            Not all webloggers write because they assume that strangers care about what they think. Don't impute egotistical motivations to all webloggers. (Many, sure, but not all, and definitely not necessarily applicable to many of us who started blogging in the late '90s.)

            •  You are imputing egotism (none)
              where what I'm talking about is a sense of "appropriateness", my probably isn't that I don't have an ego, I do, nor is it my belief that people blog because they are ego maniacs, its something else that I'm not very good at articulating, but it has a lot to do with having grown up as a working class Southern girl in the era of my childhood.

              "Ego" isn't the dimension, its about one's place in the world and voice, and having an understanding about both voice and your place in the world that is often taken for granted but isn't as "obvious" or "natural" as people like to think it is.

              I just want to be clear that I don't think bloggers are egotists, cause that's not what I think.  I do think there's something about being middle-class involved in it, though I'm not completely sure how that plays out.

      Thanks folbum! It's a pretty impressive list.
      •  #3? (none)
        Kos, if you're not the first person to register on dKos, who is? Rusty? Jerome?

        I'd look it up myself, but I don't see a way to do it other than dig through all the threads to look for a recent post by them. It doesn't seem one can search for authors with the search tool here.

        •  Easy enough (none)
          www.dailykos.com/user/uid:n

          Where n is the number you want to look up.  That's how I can look up exactly how many registered users we have (now 9530--welcome, wanda!).

          1 is "scoop"; 2 is Grant, who's not on my list because he never posts that I see.  Rusty is 2212.

    •  much appreciated (none)
      thanks for keeping up with this - though you may be wary of posting another updated list, since it always seems to attract a bunch of new ones! I'm a few versions behind but will update the next chance I get.

      I also second the appreciation to Kos for the inspiration to blog. It's harder and more time consuming than I thought it would be, but it's a blast.

    •  Are you familiar with this diary? (none)
      There may be some sites you're not aware of:

    •  Wow! (none)
      Totally dynamite, and an excellent resource.

      Folkblum,

      I am in the midst of working up a webpage outlining the strategy, tactics, and tools necessary to enact my "plan" for buying out a media outlet. See my diary for details and discussion.

      When it is finished, can I contact you and get your help notifying all those folks of the existence of the site?

      Thanks for your efforts!

      Well done Folkbum.  This is great and I've only visited 1/3rd of the list so far.

    60s Reloaded offers commentary by a long-haired hippie faggot who's still stuck in the 60s.
