Blogging is a long, hard slog for little to no dough. It's a calling, and few can meet its rigorous demands and unforgiving schedule unless you love it and understand the importance bloggers play in the war against the enemedia. Most give up or pander to an acceptable framing of key issues of the day in order to get in (linkage) with the big (soft) bloggers.
I recently stumbled across a relatively new, excellent blog that I encourage Atlas readers to read: Conservative Nation News. Lots of election news with pithy commentary and fearless coverage of Islam and jihad.
Check it out.
