Do you ever wonder whether what we do matters? Maybe only the big blogs, you know the Big Hollywood‘s, RedState, I Own the World, Drudge, and others maybe they are the only one that matter. Well they’re not, what I say and you say can shape the dialogue more than we can know.
Yesterday, I wrote a short post that included some information about Abound Energy in Colorado. If you missed it here’s the link. I sourced from Colorado Peak Politics but others wrote about it also. One of them was Complete Colorado Blog. Their post definitely got noticed. Today they posted some inside baseball for our edification. It’s short so I’ll just repost it so you all can see what can happen.
When the Abound Solar layoffs were announced last night, we had to link to the extensive coverage that CompleteColorado.com, Amy Oliver of the Independence Institute, and Michael Sandoval of People’s Press Collective have provided on this topic over the years.
Then, this afternoon, as I’m looking at my stats, I realized the Betsy Markey-Pat Stryker-Abound Solar-Pay-to-Play story had quite a few hits, so I clicked on “recent visitors” to see who was reading the story.
Well hello 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!

By taking a closer look we can discern a few extra things. First, because we see two separate screen sizes, we know there were more than two people checking out the story. Next, there’s no referring link, which means they didn’t just stumble upon the story from some source, like CompleteColorado, or the Daily Caller (we wish) or the Drudge Report (we wish) or The Blaze (we wish) or The Heritage Foundation (we wish)…you get the idea.
At any rate, we’re happy to have members of the White House stop by…Pretty sure we’ll be seeing you again soon!
This is the link, Which I got from the Crockett’s Corner Daily: HELLO WHITE HOUSE! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY! :: Complete Colorado Blog.
So we should keep in mind that all of us have some part of the bully pulpit ourselves. Does the White House listen to us? Probably not, but others do. Keep up the good work, fellow Patriots.
