This will be brief. I have noticed that many important articles that need to be widely read are not being submitted to several of the Social Networking sites. As an example, I'll cite the article Who Will Hold The President Accountable?
This was an excellent article that needed to be read by as many people as possible, yet it was not submitted to "Reddit" or "Digg". I believed it was an important article, one that needed to be widely read, so I submitted it myself even though I was not the one that authored the article. It was an excellent article as evidenced by 49 "Reddit" points and 4 "Digg" points that is likely to increase as other people find the article and read it because of the high number of people who also thought it was a great article.
In short, if we don't use these Social Networking sites to increase the readership of important articles, we often find ourselves "preaching to the choir." Further, when we submit important articles to these sites, it also helps to create more traffic for Op-Ed News, and hopefully, bring in more readership to a site that I believe is extremely beneficial to the Liberal/Progressive community.
If you read an article that you believe is important and will help to further our cause by an increased readership, please take the time to submit them yourselves whether the author had the time to do it him/herself. The more traffic that we help to bring into Op-Ed News, it's also my hope that it will also bring in more donations, which are essential to the survival of a site that many of us believe is perhaps the best Liberal/Progressive site on the entire Internet.
We all are writing to further the cause of returning to our constitutional values and the rule of law, and increasing the readership of important articles helps to awaken what used to be a "sleeping America" who appear to be awakening from their slumber at a remarkable pace.
Thanks to all.
