Publius' Forum A State of The Blog Address
Just a few words updating you all on what is going on to make your Publius' Forum experience a little better...
SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE UPGRADED
We have finally taken the step to transfer from Bloglet to Feedblitz.
This means that the subscription service has been upgraded and improved at long last. The old one, Bloglet, is no longer being supported and the new one, Feedblitz, replaces it from now on.
If you have not yet signed up to subscribe to Publius' Forum, be sure and look to the left in the side-bar, at the top of the Publius' Forum main page (and all branch pages) and you will see a fill-in field where you can add your email address. After you hit the enter this will take to to Feedblitz and they will then send you an email update every morning of the new posts on Publius' Forum.
This is a great service, it is free, and it is also free of other intrusive Spam emails. I do not make any money with this email list and it is not posted anywhere on the Web for others to see.
So, if you would like to get notices daily of our updates, be sure to sign up for our Feedblitz subscription service.
TTLB Ecosystem Improvement
If you are unfamiliar with the TTLB Ecosystem, it is a service that grades websites and awards them cute little titles depending on where they stand in their "ecosystem". They grade how many other sites link to yours and how many hits/visitors your site gets on a daily basis to award titles and levels.
The top three titles are "Higher Beings", "Mortal Humans", and "Playful Primates". to gain these titles you have to have hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of hits a month.
The fourth title is "Large Mammals" which means you have many thousands of hits per month and hundreds of other blogs that link to you.
I am proud to announce we have made the fourth category, "Large Mammals". This mean we rank about 750th out of all the blogs on the TTLB Ecosystem. And, I have to say that all the biggest blogs are in this Ecosystem, too. Michelle Malkin, Hugh Hewitt, Andrew Sullivan and DailyKos as well as Powerline, Captain's Quarters, The Huffington Post and a host of other big name blogs belong to the TLB ecosystem.
That's right folks. Little old Publius' Forum is in the top 1,000 of the biggest blogs on the Internet!!
This is ALL due to your continued coming back. So, tell all your friends and make them come and visit us, too! I say, hold their arms behind their backs until they do. Hold your breath... SOMETHING.
Let's get Publius' Forum into one of the top three brackets in the TTLB Ecosystem!
Contributors holding Steady!
I'd like to thank our contributors who have been kind enough to make our blog an important part of their publishing outlets. We have been fortunate to have as regular and continuing Op Ed writers the following excellent writers (in alphabetical order):
R. A. Hawkins
Resa "Warchick" Kirkland
Thanks to these folks for enlivening our Publius' Forum Experience.
And, thanks to all our Publius' Readers. This site has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to your continued patronage.
Lastly ... the wind up... and the PITCH....
Remember, you may donate funds to keep the lights on here by clicking the DONATE banner at the top of the blog. This site is not paid for by advertising so that it does not intrude on your time here. We'd like to keep it that way, too.
Now, I said I'd make only a few words and you ALL know that is impossible for me. But, I shall leave you here, none-the-less.
Yours, Warner Todd Huston
Proprietor, Publius' Forum
