How to use gravatar.com on LOL blogs

This is mostly a technical post for readers of mine who like to participate in the discussions here.

Twitter Time

These days, everyone's got a Twitter account. So, in the finest tradition of bandwagon jumpers, I am jumping on the bandwagon:

twitter.com/lubbockleft

What good is it? Sometimes, I have an idea that's just too brief to make a good blog post. To the twitter it goes! twitter.com/lubbockleft will also be handy for posting links to news articles and other blogs that I believe are important but would bog down the blog here.

This and That

Well, the A-J blog relocation seems to have gone well. Thanks to all the LubbockOnline staff for providing a swell home on the internet.

Unfortunately, the move meant that Lubbock Left posting and commenting went away for a few days. Oh well.

So, what did I miss? For starters, Alberto "I cannot recall" Gonzales got a six-figure/one-class professor gig at Texas Tech this Fall, earning Lubbock another black eye in the national scene.

Texas Progressive Alliance Blogs

I finally got around to updating my blogroll for the LubbockOnline.com version of my blog (nearly done!). I want to take a moment to point out the Texas Progressive Alliance blogs. TPA is a great organization that has been promoting progressive blogs since 2006.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Job's Anger
Capitol Annex
Burnt Orange Report

Give 'em a try.

Is this thing on?

Hello!

My name is Kenny, and I post on the internet under the name "Lubbock Left." I consider myself a Progressive (or Liberal, if you prefer) Democrat, and I will be writing news and opinion from that perspective.

Welcome to my blog!

Some of you may already be familiar with me from the Lubbock Online Forums or from my LubbockLeft.com blog.
