I've noticed a mjority of traffic occurs at my blog after 6pm. Rather than post the news roundup twice a day with half the news getting missed, I thingk that an interesting new way to meet my readers' needs as well as expand the scope of the blog is to publish the news roundup in a single post at the end of the work day and post more analysis and commentary throughout the rest of the day. I've also noticed that I get a lot more traffic on days I focus on more local STATE2STATE stories, so i'd like to scale back the Washington talk and try to do more local news. Any thoughts, readers?
Finally, I've discussed with about 4 other people the possibility of adding a more diverse lineup of voices on here-which would be in lline with the shift from news round-up. If you would like to contribute to Ameriqueer, let me know.
