It was a year ago today that I founded leftcall.com, and coincidentally this is the 600th post on this blog. Well, I guess there’s nothing really special about that number other than we humans like nice round numbers to celebrate. The Left Call was born as a re-launch of an existing blog, but this time with a full-time focus on political analysis with a liberal edge. The intention was and is to inject liberal values into important political and social issues. The launch of The Left Call coincided with the start of the 2012 election season and over the past year I’ve covered dozens, even hundreds of 2012 election stories, and it likely will only intensify with less than 3 months to go until election day.

It’s a happy one year anniversary for this website! I started this site as “Indiscriminate Ruminations” on August 16, 2010 as a platform for writing about things that interest me. The most common topic over the next 11 months was technology with a frequency of posting measured in weeks and months.

So far my blog has been about writing articles in long form. I was never that concerned about how frequently I wrote an article. Instead I chose to write, when the writing muse struck, about things which interest me. I’m still going to write long form articles for that same reason but I’m now also going to experiment with writing much shorter notes, almost in a fashion similar to the 140 character limit on Twitter. Where it will defer from Twitter is that I’m not going to impose any kind of character limit. The intention of this experiment is to essentially write one or two sentences or a paragraph of a prevailing thought I have at any given moment. This could be after having a conversation with someone at work or while watching a TV show or listening to a song.

I figured it was about time I created a personal website and blog. What do I have to say? What will this blog be about? Well, as you probably can extrapolate from the name of this blog, it’s not going to be about anything in particular. I might post about a project I’m working on at home, at work, something new I’m interested in, a book I’m reading, or anything else I can’t think of at this time. Right now I don’t know if this will happen frequently (daily) or less frequently (weekly…). I’m sure I’ll get a better feel for how much I have to say on this blog as time goes on.
