Note: I originally posted this diary on March 16, 2005. My purpose in reposting it today is to 1) make any additions or corrections to the list and 2) inform new kossacks about dKos diary series. I've successfully managed to procrastinate to this point when it comes to turning this into a dKosopedia entry, but it's time to bite the bullet, learn the wiki formatting and get that job done. - catnip

Whether you're new to Daily Kos or have been around for a little while, you may have missed some diaries by dedicated kossacks who have devoted themselves to presenting regularly scheduled diary series. Since I think they deserve some recognition and more support, I've compiled a list for your reading pleasure.

Without further delay, here they are. (The links provided go to the diarist's list of diaries so you can follow them on a regular basis.)

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.
