The big are getting bigger, and better.

Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy was sold to Salem Communications, which owns Hot Air and Townhall.  Congratulations Michelle for a briliant idea, brilliantly executed.

Now, according to Buzzfeed, Salem also will be acquiring Eagle Publishing, which owns Red State and Human Events:

No, not the gubmint.

Legal Insurrection, for scheduled “maintenance.”

Starting about 4 a.m. Eastern on Monday. If all goes according to plan, the outage will be short and in any event, over no later than 8 a.m.

If all doesn’t go according to plan, can you say “healthcare.gov”?

This also is a good excuse to...

Our friend Jim Hoft, who we noted before has been seriously ill, is back at Gateway Pundit, although he still has many physical problems, which he details in Facing the Horror: How Disease Nearly Took My Life But Grace Saved Me.

It’s great that Jim is back, and that his spirits seem high.

Sitemeter is the free traffic meter I’ve been using since day one of the blog to keep track of visits and page views.  It’s public, and linked at the bottom of the page in the footer.

The reason I like Sitemeter is it’s free.  And it’s used by TaxProf for his law...

Buzzfeed seems to engender pretty strong feelings all around.  Mostly the criticism was from the right during the election, but I’m seeing grumbling from the left lately as well.

I cautioned last February not to underestimate BuzzFeed Politics, which is an emerging force in news and uses cats to maximum effect.  Despite my tongue-in-cheek post,

Everybody wants an Insurrection.

But you can’t all have it.

At least not peaceinsurrection.com, as of earlier this morning.  Need to protect the “brand” from Code Pink.  It’s mine now.

So you see, I walked over to Ithaca Falls, about a 10 minute walk from my house, with my friend to help him get over his blogger burnout problems.

Instapundit turned 12 years old this week, and received appropriate accolades.

It’s not an overstatement to say that Prof. Reynolds has helped foster and keep up the spirits of the conservative blogosphere, including Legal Insurrection and College Insurrection.

Which brings me to a related topic, blogger burnout.

Legal Insurrection turns 5 in October, and 12...

Two big things have happened this week (so far).

First, yesterday the 200,000th comment was posted at Legal Insurrection:

200,000 comments is not a lot for many websites which use third party platforms like Disqus.  We have considered many times, and ultimately rejected, the third-party platforms in favor of more control over who...
