I have a strong desire to make this blog work. For me, the greatest motivator would be knowing that people are actually going to read it and find it interesting. Nothing would discourage me more than having post after post on this blog get zero comments. Maybe that's selfish of me, but really, this blog is intended as a way of expressing myself to a larger audience, not just as a personal journal.
I am therefore asking anyone who reads this journal to do a couple of things:
1) Post a "hello" comment at the end of this entry. Nothing big or extensive, just "hi, I'm reading your blog and I like it because of a, b and c, or I hate it because of a, b, and c, or I have no opinion of it, or whatever." Give me constructive criticism.
2) Promote this blog to your friends, acquaintences, people you encounter who might be interested in a progressive Oklahoman left-handed Jewish approach to politics. Shit, I've got to have a unique angle somewhere. Post a MySpace bulletin about Sinister, for example.
3) If you have a blog of your own, e-mail me or post a link to it in the comments and I'll do a link exchange with you. I'll link to your blog if you'll link to mine.
4) If you have a secret method for gaining an audience, please, share it with me.
