Josh - I'm not going to write about Martinsville
Josh has his thoughts on the Blogs United conference posted on Raising Kaine. Read it! His words ring true. I hope people can see that this event was special for many reasons. Walls came down and boundaries were crossed. A few of us from both sides shared a unique experience while we talked. We did not see a Republican or a Democrat. We saw fathers, mothers, workers, all concerned about our future. While opinions and political beliefs were not changed, an understanding and dare I say admiration for our fellow bloggers was achieved. I think reading Josh's post shows that. Awesome! What started in controversy turned out to be a groundbreaking event.
This year Alton and his crew sent ripples through the blogoshere. Next year if everyone helps we can make a huge wave. I hope to be there, if not, open four bottles of Beam and raise a glass.
BTW – My email is on the sidebar. If anyone is down my way and wants to hang out at Spark it Up HQ let me know.
