Welcome to J Town: a friendly little place in the big bad blogosphere.

A place to hang out, promote posts, check on the weather (and brag about yours!) and waste spend a little time. Bring your music, your news stories, your life stories, and, above all, your sense of humor ... but leave the "pie fights" at the door.

Community Norms

Wait. Those are not our norms. These are:

The guidelines for J Town community norms are from this Markos edict: "New Community Behavior Guidelines (Updated)", revised and extended with:
1. If you link to another person's comment or post, it should be for illumination or entertainment, not to start a fight. If you are not sure, think: WWBD (what would bubbanomics do?) or WWKD: "You don't need to go after the same people every day to remind them that, yes, you still don't like them." (kos)
2. We often recommend someone's comment just to say "Hi, I read your comment!". It does not necessarily mean "Everything you say is something that I can agree with 100%" ... but it might.
3. navajo can do pretty much whatever she wants.
4. No more cracks about plumbers.

(more under the "divider-doodle" or "swirly thing" for you non-techies)

J Town is you. Join in just for the heck of it.

We are looking for Readers ... people who read posts and want a place to promote them. When you find that gem, comment here and we will send the Judicious J Town Jolly Jeniuses to check it out and Republish here. Or ask to be a Contributor and you can add to the Queue also.

The posts will show up in this list: J Town Babbling Brook

In the comment threads share what you like, don't like, or what you don't want to talk about (we promise not to tell anyone).

Hey, if you publish a post, you can promote it here also! And we will let this guy rescue Republish it.


Choose one of these J Town Republishing Marks ...

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.
