It's hard to believe it's been three years since I began posting at RedState. Like many, I began writing about well-known national issues, but after the 2008 elections, I started focusing more on State and Local issues. I worked with a couple of local City Council candidates, including the traditional knocking on doors and making phone calls. We won one and lost one. I wrote and in-depth diary about getting involved with local politics, including lots of links and information for activists.
The Obama economy has taken a personal toll on my family. To help make ends meet I've been working two jobs, traveling on business, going to school (only 4 weeks left), and trying to finish raising my kids. It just hasn't left very much time for blogging, as those of you who know me have noticed. For the foreseeable future, this won't likely change.
I'll still be involved in local politics when I can. We have some important state Senate and Assembly races. Next year, if time allows, I plan to run for a place on the local School Board. As for blogging, I already stopped writing diaries at my own site, though I plan to keep it running in case I decide to pick it back up later. I'll write the occasional diary at Mount Virtus where Ben Degrow has been kind enough to allow me to guest blog.
As for places like RedState, I doubt I'll do much more than comment now and then. Who knows, maybe things will change in the future and I'll have time to be more active. For now, I have higher priorities. Taking care of my family has to come first, and that's all I really have time for right now. It's been a fun three years.
This isn't a goodbye diary, just I'll see you when I see you. Feel free to post the bunny though if you must. :-)
