The Western Word (TWW) is celebrating its 10th Anniversary today (January 10).
Please, no parades.
My first blog post was January 10, 2005, on Google’s Blogger. It was a big one – a 79-word column about football. Most of the columns back then were about sports due to my day job.
Later on I made the switch to WordPress and transferred the information from Google Blogger to WordPress.
This is the 2,428th post here at TWW.
Today, my “mission” is to provide independent commentary about politics, sports, the media, and current events.
My two most-read columns of all time:
Politics 2012: 10 Most Vulnerable Senators was published on November 4, 2010, to get a jump-start on the 2012 campaign season. It was updated several times and was published in several newspapers and linked on several websites.
The Killing at Poplar River was written April 8, 2008, after I watched the show on NBC about Barry Beach and just as the interest in his case was taking off.
