Tell me about yourself

The site had its 1,000th visitor last night -- not bad for a blog that launched just over a month ago. Thanks to the various sites that have linked here, and thanks especially to all the readers who chose to make Midtopia part of their day.

I get very curious, though, about who those readers are, since so few of you leave comments. So I'd like to invite all of you to add a short comment to this post telling me a little about yourself. It'll help me get a mental image of just whom I'm writing for.

Feel free to chime in on any other post, too, of course, or continue reading without commenting. And as always, if there are things you'd like to see added, removed or changed on the site, e-mail me. I hope for this to become an interactive blog that readers have a stake in. I can't do that without your comments.

Thanks! I like Centrisity, too!

Moderate blogs seems to be in short supply compared to right and left. I guess being sensible isn't as entertaining. :)

It's a lonely haul sometimes, but you're defending the right turf. Keep it up. Many Centrist sites SAY they are center, but often are really more right of center. Centerfield is actually discussing Charles Murry's position on ending welfare right about now. I would hardly call him Centrist. Maybe a review for the Centrist Blog tourist? Take care.

P.S. being able to post pictures would give you one up. It's probably expensive to do.....

Hey Max! Good to see you.

Centrist is in the eye of the beholder, naturally, just like how people making $175,000 a year often consider themselves "middle class." But to be fair, some issues don't break down neatly into left-right-middle. And sometimes the good answer lies on the right or the left. A good centrist is able to recognize a good idea regardless of where it comes from.

I actually can post pictures, and did in a couple of early posts. As a graphic designer in real life I want to do more visually attractive things. But for me it's a time issue, and a desire to keep the site relatively uncluttered. I will post pictures when I have the time and the subject seems appropriate.
