First November Weekend

I'm taking the weekend off, as far as blog entries are concerned. And, I'll be reconsidering how I handle this blog. See you next week!

Enjoy the break Brian and let us know about any blog re-considerations.

At American Interests, I am settling into a pattern of posting 1 or 2 posts weekly on issues and news pertaining exactly to the central theme of the site. In my mind, I constantly review the blog seeking ways to make it more effect. However I do not think a blogs success ought to be measured by the amount of comments received per post; sure, I welcome comments but have come across some outstanding blogs that get little or none.

Ultimately, we must enjoy blogging and have both a purpose and a goal otherwise why do it. Finally, we need balance in our lives don’t we.

Look forward to future posting

American Interests,

Thanks for sharing your experience, and advice.

The "balance" issue is one of the central issues for me. The next post here will up as soon as I re-think my re-thinking.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
