Middle Earth Journal

Filed under: Sphere Blog Partners — sphere @ 5:27 am


If you haven’t read MEJ, give it a try. Putting politics aside, I like how Ron Beasley has pulled together a group of friends from different geographies (a virtual blog) to contribute thoughts and opinions. According to Ron, here is the cast:

MEJ is the project of Ron Beasley a retired engineer who is now a digital artist, freelance philosopher and pundit located in Portland Oregon . Bill is an old friend living in the Washington DC area who reads the newspapers for me and sends links to the good stuff. Jazz Shaw is a former Republican living in New York and a guest pamphleteer at MEJ. Xenophon is a democrat kind of a guy, a liberal, a union man, with some experience participating at the precinct, and county caucus levels. “

The other thing I want to point out is that we’re starting to play with some new ideas on how to make an integral part of the blog template. The end result is a more customized look & feel of the widget than in the past. In this case, we picked up the graphic of Ron (assuming that is Ron), looks like a “mini me”. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.

  1. These guys have been getting a lot of attention from the media. Deservedly so, I think. Middle Earth covers the same ground as the talking head shows, without getting obnoxiously belligerent.
