While we're waiting to see if the world economy is going to go into crisis, I thought I'd mention something some of you might have already noticed...I did some re-arranging on this blog last night.

One of my main reasons for doing that is that I wanted to highlight the growing power of pragmatic progressive blogs. Over on the left, you will now see the list I've developed so far (and I'm sure will be adding to) with updates as new articles are posted. Already today I'm loving this because it gives me up-to-the-minute information on what's new from these wonderful intelligent writers. I hope you'll take advantage of it as well.

On a specific note, if you scroll down to the very bottom of the list right now, you'll see a url for SistahSpeak by Robinswing. Some of you may know of Robinswing from her writing at Daily Kos. This week she announced that she'll no longer be writing there and is starting her own place. Its obviously still under construction, but as soon as it goes "live," you'll be able to see that here (if all works as it should). I can't wait to welcome Robinswing to this wonderful group of blogs!!!


  1. Robinswing! Woot!!! One of my favorite writers!

    Love the re-design, Ms Pants. Really, really like it and it will help me catchup on the days/weeks I can only catch a minute or two.

  2. Wow..thank you SO much for doing this! It makes it so much easier to follow good writers that still have both feet on the ground and aren't running around foaming at the mouth with their hair on fire! Smartypants has become my home base online, thanks to all your hard work.
