April 12th is the 10th anniversary of BlnNews.
Seriously, 10 years of writing!
I only started writing because local media was already failing 10 years ago.
If local politics can’t be fixed, nothing can be fixed. That’s why MOST of what I write is about local issues.
I don’t expect people to agree with me, I expect you to think. Voting in national elections is ridiculous if you sit out local elections. Where do you think professional politicians start out? LOCAL!
One more thing I wish more people believed: Government isn’t here to help you. They have an agenda for your money that doesn’t include what you think. (how are the roads?) Do I need to give you a local list of fleeces? Government at all levels must be limited!
I was going to link the top read story for each year, but many brought back memories and people I’d like to forget. Besides, some of the stories I consider high priority aren’t the most read!
As long as readers want to read I will continue writing. Share the stories you think people need to see. It would be nice to feel appreciated though:
