This past Thursday was the 3rd anniversary of Krusty Konservative. Usually I make a big deal out of such things and toss around some of my stats. As I’ve said on past occasions, I’m always amazed at the number of people who read this blog and participate in the comment section. Your participation has meant a lot to me over the years and has kept me going.
As we enter year three, you will notice a significant change, as I will no longer be blogging on this site. As some of may have noticed, I’ve experienced a number of difficulties with blogger in the last few months. While blogger has been a great free service, it’s time to find a better home for Krusty.
Starting on Wednesday, my new home will be on TheIowaRepublican.com. What? You thought I was hanging it up again? Never, I’m having too much fun.
While the technical problems with blogger were annoying, I also was interested to find a venue that could increase the viewership of my daily column. It is my belief that TheIowaRepublican.com will provide me with just that.
I’m also told that some other Iowa blogs will be making the move along with me. I do not know the details on who else will be blogging at TheIowaRepublican.com but I think its great idea to bring various conservative blogs together under the same roof. While I can’t announce the other blogs, I was able to take a screen shot when I was allowed on the site to take a look around.
The Iowa conservative blogosphere is going through some drastic changes. Later today Tim Albrecht’s TheBeanWalker.com will take root. I’m told that Bean Walker is a news aggregator, kind of like a state specific version of the Drudge Report.
Coming on Wednesday is Craig Robinson’s TheIowaRepublican.com, a conservative version of the Huffington Post that will focus on Iowa Politics. Robinson’s site will contain political news content, blogs like Krusty, and opinion and editorials from various Republican leaders.
One of the things I’m most excited about on the new site is the message board. I love the interaction we have on Krusty, but sometimes it gets out of hand. I think the message board will be a great place to interact with other people across the state.
These are exciting times for the Iowa Blogosphere. I look forward to blogging with my fellow Komrades. And if you’re a blogger and are interested in joining me at TheIowaRepublican.com, shoot me an email and I’ll hook you up with Craig.
My email will remain firstname.lastname@example.org
