The Rumors of My Coma...

Were false...

I started a new job in April that has taken me out of town, and that, combined with new responsibility of the position, and this historic presidential campaign, has left me cold to blogging on local politics. I thought I would blog on the road, but my family is kind of a muse for me. I watched the national campaign with interest as the wind left Mitt Romney's political sails, and as the zombie McCain campaign resurrected--

Don't even get me started about Obama.

I got so far out of the habit, that I had even forgotten I'd ever blogged. I got an occasional reminder of my former life when I saw a guest blog post happen across the screen. (Thank you Natalie). I even got nominated to do some citizen journalism as to what would be done about the unincorporated part of Davis County. Is it too late to refuse? My wife asked me tonight if I'd read a particular political email tonight. I realized that I had not because it had been sent to my blog email, which I had forgotten.

In the time I've been away, the idea has been floated of merging the five southern-most cities of Davis County into one town. North Salt Lake has decided to try a 4 day work week, and I'm seeing local ultra-conservatives endorsing Democrats. (More on this later)

I do think that my best days of contributing to Davis County Watch are behind me.

That being said, I'm accepting applications for more guest bloggers to keep the blog moving. I see the blog as belonging to the community and achieving a consensus of opinion will be less important than having a common forum to share those views.

To qualify for a position on the blog you must meet the following criteria.

  1. You live in Davis County.
  2. You have a blogger account.
  3. You will abide by the Scout Law
Please leave a comment if you want a shot at blogging here.

Well, you are definitely stuck with me, although I have been much less prolific than in the past as well.

Congrats on your new job, you'll have to tell me about it sometime. I would enjoy being a guest bloger on Davis County Watch.

Pick me, pick me!
I'd love a shot at contributing. Although, I admit there is a part of the scout motto I don't follow all the time on account of crankiness. But if that can be overlooked, I'd love a shot.

Congratulations Tyler! Hope your new job brings many rewards besides monetary renumeration. I have a new job that probably disqualifies me from posting on your blog. It would conflict with my loyalty vow of being the new webmaster of the Davis County Democratic Party. On the other hand I am a scoutmaster though, but all my boys are democrats I think.

Wish you the best,
