Our Favorite Blogs: The Lonely Conservative

This article is the second in a scheduled eight-part series. We here at Jumping in Pools love our fellow blogs out there on internet-land, so here is something to give back.

One of our favorite blogs: The Lonely Conservative

Why they're cool: The thing that we love most about The Lonely Conservative is how similar they are to JiP. Both of us reside in "Blue" states, but are still conservative; we write very similar articles and link to each other occasionally; heck, we even have similar ratings on Technorati.

The Lonely Conservative Speaks:

What is your site's goal for the next year?

To be honest, after the past week or so I'm just trying to get through the month. March was the best month ever at TLC, things were really taking off. But then my site was hacked last week and the hacker installed code redirecting readers to suspicious sites. What a mess. Thankfully, the problem was fixed and steps were taken to protect the site, but it's been a great big set back.

As for 2011, I'm hoping the Democrats will have lost control of Congress and there will be a check on President Obama and his administration. Then we can start looking to 2012 and trying to get a good conservative nominated to run on the GOP ticket. CPAC should be pretty interesting next year, and I plan to attend the full three day conference. If you've never been I really recommend it - you get great speeches, great parties and the chance to meet candidates and representatives that you may not otherwise meet.

What makes your site unique?

I try to follow the latest news stories, but you never know when I'll go off on some kind of rant. You have to read every day or you may miss it. There are also a few guest contributors to give the site a different perspective on things every now and then. Alan's in Florida and Andy and Bill are here in Upstate New York.

When did you found your site?

January of 2008.

Anything else you would like to add?

May should be an interesting month. Both of my boys will be playing baseball, in two different leagues. Between baseball, a full time job and the blog I'll really be putting my time management skills to the test. If I start using a lot of baseball metaphors you'll know why.

That's a lot of exclamation points. I get carried away sometimes.

The more exclamation points the better!

I post at The Lonely Conservative site quite often. Her site is excellent for recapping little known news. Or more accurately news that the MSM doesnt want you to read.

I highly recommend the TLC. Its a great clearing house for the truth from of course a conservative perspective.
