Almost a year ago I wrote a post mentioning something about slabbed.org coming soon and soon never came. Nowdy and I self fund this site and that model has been a key part of the reason such a diverse group of people engage us. We’re non-partisan and equal opportunity though we have a consistent message in these pages about these days and times here in Soggy Bottom.
Change is certain and the one thing we can all count on in life, so it was in the cards that we were going to move to our own host and begin taking advertising. And then I pulled up a post this morning and GASP there it was, an ad by Google on Slabbed despite the fact that WordPress bloggers are prohibited from advertising on their blogs. Any Ad you see on Slabbed is WordPress paying the bills to host and provide the platform, not us.
Our days on WordPress are numbered IMHO.
Click here. Nowdy maybe we need to hire an agent. 8)
Meantime if I had to write a post about this stupid criminal story from yesterday’s Sun Herald the piece would be titled Dum, dum dum dum….
With some luck I’ll have that comprehensive post on Byron Lee ties to the landfill out for later today.
I added 5 new links to our blogroll for the consideration of our readers:
The Hayride: A GOP blog run by the former editor of Purple and Gold magazine Scott McKay, who I remember from sportstalk on WWL radio from back in the day.
The Jefferson Report: Baton Rouge businessman Lane Grigsby digs deep in his own pockets to fund several public interest websites including TJR, which is devoted to reporting on the double dealing in Jefferson Parish.
The NOLA Defender: What can I say folks except, they liked our coverage of the ongoing exploits Magnum JD. 😉
Pistolette: Andrea is a rising star in the NOLA area blogosphere and a damn good blogger. Her post on the HBO series Treme was refreshing and real, which is no doubt why it was so well received.
Former Slabbed author Bellesouth has hung her own shingle as she hits the warpath shining the spotlight on certain hidden agenda blogging that resulted from the Scruggs scandal.
I am on assignment and (completely hooked up with the day job). I hope to roll out some new material over the weekend. As always we thank you for your support.
Nowdy it doesn’t get much better than this.
I know I promised earlier to publish a post today for the freaks at the West Jefferson Medical Center. I’ve been given some new information on a related matter that requires a bit of research thus that post will appear tomorrow along with a revisitation of Operation Wrinkled Robe. As always we thank the Slabbed Nation for their support.
Nowdy is Daisy Duke.
Our offline legal team (too numerous to mention) are Bo and Luke.
Steve is Cooter Davenport
Mr CLS is the General Lee
And I’m Uncle Jesse
Ed Rust is Boss Hogg
James Robie is Sheriff Coltrane
H Scot Spragins is Deputy Enos
Lucky Tucker is Deputy Cletus.
Welcome and enjoy
I’m short of time this morning but thought I’d put up a quick post to highlight the new links I added to our blogroll category and circle back to one Nowdy mentioned a day or so back, VickiePynchon’s Negotiation Law Blog. I don’t know why we neglected Ms Pynchon’s blog for so long because she was the first national law blogger highlight our work in a post she did in April 2008 that still generates us traffic from time to time. Now for the others I just added:
I mentioned Jessica Hagy’s blog Indexed previously here as one I visit for fun. Jessica is a real talent and as she discovered less than 2 weeks back doing a card on the topic of insurance sure does stir up the industry faithful. I personally think she is spot on.
After I linked Zero Hedge I noticed a few other Mississippi blogs started mentioning the site. Here is another one for you finance freaks in Greenbackd, one that is near and dear to my style of investing in finding undervalued companies with a management team needing a swift kick in the rear end.
Finally those needing good information on insurance news in Florida should check out Miami Herald Reporter Beatrice Garcia’s Florida Insurance News Service blog which has the skinny on all the major insurance news in Florida. It was my honor and pleasure to leave Beatrice her first comment.
I hope everyone enjoys the new links.
