Help me if you can i'm feeling down
Economy sucks? Jobs lost? Health insurance gone with the wind? Happens to bloggers too.
Barbara at the Mahablog needs some bloggy love. She's a real OG blogger, started before most folks knew what a blog was, and continues to provide quality progressive ideas and viewpoints.
Help her out if you can. At least, offer some words of support.
And realize that just because someone has coded and built a slick website, that doesn't mean they are wealthy. That's the great equalizer of blogging: if you have the time, and the inclination, you can look like Daily Kos, or Huffington Post, all the while living out of your car and catching wireless internet access while parked outside Starbucks.
But web presence doesn't mean quality of content. If it did, Politico.com would be relevant. Redstate.org, would be credible. And Drudge would be believable.
Mahablog is relevant, credible, and believable. Worthy of support.
