Blogging meta

- by New Deal democrat

Usually this blog goes quiet over the weekend. Bonddad and I were talking last night, however, and among other things noted that our traffic has gone up about 50% during the last couple of weeks.

If you are new to coming here or just started to return, you are probably seriously concerned by what has transpired in the last few weeks, and are looking for hard facts rather than hysteria. And given the fast moving nature of events in the last couple of weeks, timely is better. So this weekend I -expect to- (Edit: have post(ed)) several pieces, and by Tuesday at the latest my lengthy, graph- intensive overview of the economy. Hint: almost all the data is still going UP.

On a longer term note, both of us feel the need on our part, and the desire on your part, for us to state our opinions beyond summarizing the data. At the same time, I want to separate those two items. So my plan is to occasionally publish more opinionated, more political posts over the weekend, -possibly but not probably- (Update: done that too) starting this weekend. We'll see how it goes.
