Support Black and Red in 3 Easy Steps

3 Ways to Support Black and Red

It’s great to be back writing Black and Red. If you like what you see here so far, please consider supporting Black and Red in these 3 easy ways.

One: Facebook
The Black and Red Facebook page is finally up, but it’s relatively bare. I’m completely new to Facebook, so if you have any suggestions, I’d be glad to hear them and put them to use. Right now on the Facebook page, I’m creating logos for the burgeoning podcast and plan to post some interesting videos and give you an under the hood look at the blog. Input is always appreciated.

Two: Twitter
You can also support Black and Red by following me on Twitter. Retweet articles to your followers and help more people get involved in the site. In the past, I’ve live tweeted debates, important speeches and other political events. I plan to do so with upcoming important events as well.

Three: Email
A third way to support Black and Red is to email articles to your friends and associates. If you think they’ll nod or grind their teeth, another perspective never hurt anyone. You can sign up to have new Black and Red posts sent to your email as soon as they’re published.

Finally, I always appreciate reading your comments–good or bad, but preferably clean.

A Quick Word about the Black and Red Podcast

The Black and Red podcast is in its beginning stages. I’m lining up interviews on a wide variety of topics, and am hoping to get something going soon. It all really depends on who is willing to be interviewed on some fun, but some very serious topics. Keep your fingers crossed and I’ll keep you posted.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for spreading the word about Black and Red.

Welcome to The New Black and Red

Sleep. Coma. Death. Hiatus

Black and Red suffered lately with fits and starts. These hiatuses, brought on by life events and by my own thoughts about the direction of the blog, have hopefully come to an end. I’m happy to introduce the new Black and Red–now on WordPress instead of Blogger, but still accessible at


Black and Red began as a place where I discussed politics with my coworkers, but it evolved into something bigger as its readership increased and diversified.  As I learn the new platform and experiment with new media, I will bring what I can to Black and Red to make it more dynamic–a goal I’ve always sought to achieve. From its inception, I intended for Black and Red to be a resource for learning, a place to find interesting perspectives, and a place to safely talk about important issues that are often very personal. Sometimes, the blog served as an archive that helped us remember momentous events that are easy to forget in the fast-paced world of political reporting.  Black and Red will continue to be a place where readers can interact with me and with each other in thoughtful debate about American politics and culture.


Rebuilding after a hiatus this long will take a bit of work. I do not take my readership for granted, and I hope that this reboot will demonstrate the dedication I have to this project, and to you, who make Black and Red a worthy endeavor.


To my precious readers who have been on from the beginning, I thank you for your readership and your support. I hope the coming changes impress you, and that Black and Red continues to function as a place to get insightful political commentary.


To my new readers, I welcome you to Black and Red. I look forward to getting to know you, to engaging with you and to making you a permanent addition to the readership.


Hiatus Over.
