Updating blogroll

Updating blogroll

The Blogs to Note list, which serves as our blogroll, is a moving object.  Literally and figuratively.

Literally, because the blogs which appear on the homepage are pulled randomly from the full list with each page view, refreshed at some interval.  So the list you see on the homepage changes frequently, although the full list always is accessible by hitting the “more” button at the bottom of the list.

Figuratively, because many fine smaller blogs have gone dormant, particularly since the election.  So, if you notice any blogs on Blogs to Note which have gone dead or silent for months, please post in the comments.

And more important, let us know about active blogs (typically updated at least 3-4 times per week) we have missed.  I can’t guarantee every one of them will be added, but if we don’t know about them, we can’t make that decision.

We are best when we interact and help each other out on the blogosphere, as discussed just after the election in my post Whither small conservative blogs?

The kindness of strangers is one of the primary reasons Legal Insurrection has gained the attention it has, and we want to do our part.

My little blog is still active (ever since February, 2006)and, since it was once your blog of the day, thought I’d submit it here for consideration–won a Zilla blog award this year 🙂

North Carolina-specific news aggregator, formatted like Drudge. In that NC went 100% GOP in state congress and governor after, oh, 600 yrs of All Democrats All The Time, the state ought to be on the national watch list, especially Kay Hagan’s US Senate seat. She’s the last statewide Dem of any significance. Odd name, though. It’s our state dog breed. Updated daily.


    Hagan is awful, but she’s up front about it. Every time I e-mail her, I get a response that addresses my concerns specifically. I can respect that she (her staff, anyways) isn’t afraid to tell me there isn’t a snowball’s chance that she’s going to change. I never pass up the opportunity to inform her that she doesn’t have my vote.

Civitas Institute’s Civitas Review Online blog. Also NC-specific. The Civitas Institute is “North Carolina’s Conservative Voice”.

Common Cents is always updated… for instance tonight we have:


The Fine Report is usually updated daily, if not a few times a day.

In about the first week in April, we will have had 10,000,000 hits since beginning operations last May. new lesbian studies have been discovered —

HeyJackass is constantly being updated with near real time Chicago murder and mayhem statistics. We mainly pull from the Chicago area and attempt to keep the commentary local and fresh. We seem to have dedicated following with a conservative/libertarian bent. We do get the occasional “what you’re doing is racist” comment/tweet thrown our way of which we can only assume is not coming from a libertarian.

Illustrating Chicago’s Murders, Homicides, Violence and Idiocy at

Thank you Professor Jacobson! I appreciate it very much!

who i just found tonight while surfing links….

“This site exists to be the leading online resource for everything related to cronyism.

Cronyism occurs when an individual or organization colludes with government officials to get forced benefits they could not have otherwise obtained voluntarily. Those benefits come at the expense of consumers, taxpayers, and everyone working hard to compete in the marketplace.

In order to help end cronyism this website will house all recent news, videos, op-eds, research papers, cartoons, and anything else related to the issue, so that people will be able to see the harmful impact cronyism has in our country.”

I’m a big fan and regular reader of The Lonely Conservative, based in upstate New York.

Karen’s blog was voted Best Kept Secret at CPAC!

I am literally giving away a great deal of precious information about what is really going on in education in the US and globally. K-12 and higher ed. Precisely because the real story turned up is so transformational in every area in its intentions. I decided I was going to be describing what had led to the conflagration otherwise.

This is a radio interview podcast I gave on all the aspects we are not being told about the Common Core and how I ended up with this story.

What I am describing is live some places now, especially urban districts and many charter schools where parents are not reading or appreciating Orwellian language in some charters. But the poorly understood, extraordinarily radical Common Core actual implementation rolls out virtually everywhere by next fall’s school year.

And the sought Transformation really does enshrine a communitarian orientation to society, our economy, our politics-local to federal. Even knowledge itself which is what I am working on this morning. To me Agenda 21 is not an urban legend but a very real authoritarian blueprint to be used while climbing unseen through the windows. Making it to the living room almost as quickly as coming through the front door. But unobserved means unappreciated so all the valuables are unprotected and easily reached.

Karl Marx really did have a human development theory and it is back, without his notorious name for the most part, and coming to preschools, K-12, and colleges and universities near you. If it is not already there. Even grad schools. I asked a question at a CLE program when a prof said they were to teach law students about the importance of practicing law for the Common Good. I asked where the pressure was coming from–the accreditors? Prof said he did not know but later a Law Dean sought me out at lunch to tell me I was correct. That the accreditors were pressuring law schools to shift the orientation away from teaching law to what the students would be doing with their legal training. is my blog. And with that name you can probably tell I was a history major. And the quote in my epigraph comes from Julian Benda’s famous warning book of the 1920s–The Treason of the Intellectuals. Still seems timely unfortunately.

Just a lawyer who started looking into why the PR on what was going on in education did not fit the language of the statutes or the regs. The answers turned out to be in political theory and history and psychology and economics and a very misunderstood definition of pedagogy.

My blog’s just taking a respite from politics for 40 days. Hardest thing I’ve done is try to avoid politics on Twitter!

Meanwhile, I try to encourage Tweeps to link to small blogs that they enjoy. I can’t follow hundreds of folks all retweeting the same dozen blogs. It makes for a dull experience. In the last four weeks I have rediscovered some great writing about non-political life (hard to imagine) and have tried to tweet and link them when I can.

We all live on positive reinforcement! Thanks, Prof, for supplying it!

You omitted Conservatives4Palin, which you have listed before.

I endorse the suggestion of Crony Chronicles.

Also, Against Crony Capitalism.

    c4P is on the Blogs I Read list which means it’s posts are pulled and the titles appear in the sidebar.

    Crony Chronicles just added per prior commenter.

    ACC just added.

Please consider adding The Constitution Club ( to your blogroll. It is regularly updated by various bloggers and covers conservative politics and cultural topics.

This blog only posts about once a week because the long-term goal is more of a bibliography then ongoing commentary (although comments are available on the summary pages and suggestions are welcome). The theme is children’s fiction that supports the concept of liberty.

I have a modest little blog at where I poke a bit of fun at, well, everybody. But mostly progressives.
