When Daily Kos moved to version 4.0 it gave us the option of forming groups. I took the opportunity to create Virginia Kos in Kos in May, 2011. The group now has over 80 members.

Since I am from Maryland (and visit there frequently), I joined Maryland Kos and asked timmyc, the founder, if I could become an editor so I could help recruit more members.  

If you are interested in joining either group, send me a kosmail and I'll send you an invitation to join.

This past August, sreeizzle2012 , one of the Maryland members, and I hosted a joint meetup in Silver Spring, Maryland. You can read about it in my diary,

Meeting with the tribe,

The conversation at the Silver Spring Panera was lively -- just being Kossacks we already had a ton of things in common. At one point, Diana asked the people at our table what we hoped to have come of this. Did we want it to be just a social group or were we hoping for more? This caused me to stop and think.

I do want a social group of people who are not just Democrats, but people who are passionate about being Democrats, people who follow the news and post on their blogs about what's going on with the current political situation.

I want friends who are interested in getting involved, so while I want this group to be a social connection, I want us to be able to get together to reach our Democratic goals.

Last month Sree hosted a Baltimore area meetup.

Next Saturday, October 13th, from 4 - 7:30 pm, Virginia, Maryland, and DC Kossacks will be meeting at Union Station in DC.

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.
