Currently America’s future does not look bright. But it didn’t look bright at Valley Forge either. When you have been pushed to the edge of a cliff is the worst possible time to stop struggling.
Fortunately the Internet gives us all a means to fight back. I’m 41 has collected advice from highly effective countermoonbats like Pamela Geller and John Hawkins on how bloggers can do it more effectively. I had the honor of providing this contribution:
Be relentless. Liberalism is like rust; it never steps corroding every aspect of society. That’s we why can never stop fighting it. If our attention flags, readers will inevitably wander away. Hammer away with everything you’ve got, day in and day out, not just when you feel particularly inspired.
Be honest. Let the Fox News analysts come up with politically expedient compromise positions. Honesty is what we have to offer that they don’t. Bloggers are the spine and the conscience of the conservative movement. If we sell out, it’s all over.
Unite. We don’t all have to be on the same page on every issue; we would go stagnant if we were. But we are all pushing in the same direction, so we should promote each other whenever possible.
Find your angle. There isn’t much difference between 1,001 blogs and 1,002 blogs all shouting the same thing. Ideally every blog will find something slightly different to bring to the table.
Keep your sense of humor. It isn’t easy to laugh these days, but no one is going to read you if you don’t stay entertaining.
Not everyone finds it feasible to make the time commitment blogs require. But you don’t have to run your own to take part. This site would have gotten nowhere without tips and graphics provided by readers. Equally crucial is promotion. If you like a blog post, get the URL out to your email list. Better still, gather all the followers you can and put it out there on Twitter. The more patriots you follow, the more will follow you back, giving you more reach.
The summer soldiers wandered off after the catastrophic election. It’s up to the rest of us to never let a day go by without putting up resistance.
