I haven’t been blogging for quite a while. I don’t know if I’ll ever get back into it with the fervor I had. When I went over to Elaine Johnson’s DGreport it attracted attention from all kinds. Elaine has since gone on to a real full time job at the helm of Downers Grove Patch and is doing a great job. Patch is pretty mainstream, and has sevral writers worth reading. Wendy Foster, Tony Cesare are but two of the many I happily follow.
This site, Waking Up America, is by a fellow DG’er, and it’s mainly political commentary, consistently conservative when it shows. Apparently part of the DuPage County Tea Party (gasp, they must be awful people!). He’s been at it since 2009, making him a veteran local voice. He’s not a tool, and doesn’t appear to be a shill for anyone. I don’t agree with some of what he writes, but find his posts thoughtful and an enjoyable read. If you used to read this or DGreport, you might take a look. He doesn’t make a point of hiding or identifying himself, so I won’t either.
