A self proclaimed centrist blog
I have now finally followed the trail to the current blog Paul Helgesen is keeping: CenterPoint - A Centrist Weblog
. Now you may ask why this is a big deal. Well, it's probably not, but one of his sites has a link to Radically Inept, and I always want to see who's linked to me, and why if possible. But when I hit the link at the blog ecosphere at The Truth Laid Bear: The Blogosphere Ecosystem
, I wind up at a blog that hasn't been updated since June of last year. Though the link to Radically Inept is there.
So, I follow the links at the top of the page to his alternate web sites, and those have not been updated in several months either. Well today, I finally followed the trail to his current web site, updated 27 April of this year. It seems pretty interesting. I like his bio. So with that, coupled with a sense of reciprocity, I've added him to the links here.
By the way, I think of myself as a Centrist as well. Though it is the result of being so extreme on a host of issues, that in every test I take, usually I wind up about a point from center. I think that happens when you're pro-choice, support euthanasia, but support the death penalty in limited cases (no, I don't think it's a deterrent, I just feel it's a 100% effective in combating recidivism). When you're pro decriminalizing all drugs and letting people make decisions for themselves, but also support factoring in environmental externalities into production costs. Or being anti-war, but pro military. It's a real mixed bag, and you wind up in the center.
Anyway, go ahead and visit CenterPoint - A Centrist Weblog
, and check it out for yourself.
Note: I've also noticed that the The Truth Laid Bear: The Blogosphere Ecosystem does not pick up all links. I know of at least three for examples of this. Still, it is the best yard stick available to bloggers for measuring their 'broadcast' ratings. And just like Arbitron, it's not a 100%, but it's the best game in town.
