Releasing posts on a schedule

I hope I'll be able to get one post out every day from now on. But what I'm doing now is trying to build a backlog of posts to be released by blogger's scheduler at most twice a day. I guess I'll interrupt if there is a huge breaking story, but otherwise blog posts will be published a few days after they were written if I've successfully built a backlog.

I'm trying to prevent a situation where some days have a lot of posts and other days do not have any.

I often run out of things to write, so please, if you have a topic you'd like to suggest or a question, email it or put it into the comments section of the most recent story and I'll try to put something on the queue to address it.

Arnold, what about the second "Free Gaza" flotilla? An interested topic.

Arnold, don't worry so much about having to write a new topic every day. Remember most people don't read every one of your posts every day, so repetition can help keep focus of your blog in key topics and it's a good way to give newer visitors a refresher in your political views.

I would also recommend that once in a while, you write a post covering other bloggers posts (people from your blog roll is a good place to start).

Also try to regularly comment on other people's blogs. If you keep commenting on other blogs (using your ID), a lot of people who like your comments will click on your name to check out your profile and from there they can find your blog. That will help increase traffic to this site.

We appreciate whatever you can get around to writing.

As for topics, I was thinking about the impact an independent Iraq that is part of the resistance would have. Iraq has enormous oil reserves and potentially could pump up to 11 million barrels per day. That would be the source of extraordinary wealth that could potentially be used to counter Saudi Arabia. SA uses its wealth to bribe politicians away from the resistance axis, and the US uses the threat of exclusion from the global economy to punish defiance. Both of those effects would be seriously blunted by a wealthy and independent Iraq. Which is probably why the US does not want to leave.

I was planning on researching this myself and writing an essay on it, but I keep putting it off. But if you don't have time, I'll try to put something together and email it to you.
