In case you haven’t noticed, we are in a period of downtime right now. As a politics-focused blog, any time right after a huge election is necessary a down time, whether you win or lose. We all just let out a giant relieved exhale, and collapsed to whatever couch or chair that was nearby. And now we are busy with the holidays and work, etc., etc. So we are slowly easing back into reading and writing political stories again.
One of the regular posts I put up at Daily Kos back in the olden days of the Internets was a demographic poll called “the Roll Call.” It was meant to find out more about the fellow readers and bloggers at Daily Kos: where they were from, how old they were, etc., etc. It became one of the more popular regular features because people like finding where like-minded people live, especially when we are talking about a national blog.
I would like to try it here, but it might be problematic considering 1) we are a small state, 2) a lot of us have already met one another at various DL and Democratic Party functions. So in the comments, if you are willing, list where you are from originally (i.e. born and raised) and where you live now, and your age and sex (i.e. gender, not if you have it, because that’s TMI).
If you only want to share parts of the above criteria, that is fine too. Also answer the poll on the front page about which county you currently reside in. Thanks!
