Quite a few bloggers write posts about landmark moments that occur with their blogs, and also have weekly roundups of stories they have posted. This particular post was inspired by Sistah Mary Ellen of Bad Habit, who just jump-started her blog this week (go visit), and was pointing out on Shtuey’s Oh..My Valve! how bloggers are not hearing each other:
Everyone “says” they want to have a discussion, but a discussion can’t come about when each person is so entrenched in their own views and not open to hear or even consider the views of others.
People who seemed to be “normal” to us just months ago, suddenly look like lunatics, and the feeling is mutual from the other side. No one is listening, no one is discussing, it’s like a din of voices talking at the same time–no one listening. It’s as if the blogosphere is a big ol’ empty tube of echoes.
I am so incredibly blessed to have such loyal readers who comment, discuss and actually hear each other. The best part of this blog has been the fact that each and every one of you have brought something to the table and have not been afraid to say what you think and put your research out there in hopes of sparking a discussion and fueling the desire for the truth. I never expected this blog to turn into the “research round-table” that it has, and that is due to all of you loyal monster readers! Sherlock Holmes would be ecstatic about what is occurring here, and I cannot begin to thank you for pushing this blog in the right direction. Many, many Mahalos!!!
As many of you know, I am a home-schooling mom with a full-time job. There is just not enough hours in the day for me to read, write and do research. All of the links and information dropped here helps me help others, and for that I am eternally appreciative. This little blog, (as of this writing), has posted 856,385 hits and 398,564 visitors since September 2008; and it is because of the monster’s readers.
I want the persons that take the time to grace this page to know that they are the true “Monsters”! From Lee M. who is a master reseacher with more knowledge about Shariah Finance than is good for any one person to know, to Practical Madman who just dropped the link about the Bird Flu and how it relates back to the Pilgrims Society, to Kathy who posts incredible links to everything, (take a look at this one), to the acidic and truthful commentary that Grail Guardian brings to the table, and Navyvet48 who sends email after email with economic links, to our own resident patriots: Insight Analytical, 1sgboom, California Patriot, 77Jack, Another Patri0t, American Genie, Petunia, NJresident, the admiral, Ron, Cactus Patch, Christmas Ghost, Robert, Lisa, Letty, Paul W, Restore the Constitution, REscotish, LibberTea, Truthisgold, Leaping Spark, MsSparky, bluesky, No Nonsense Nancy, Sandra Miller Linhart, BritYank, RevCirca53, DaddysDarlin, Carrott Top, David Gagin, Tim, Catsden, Jack, Betty, Kristen, Churl, and Sunshinelvr. If I have missed anyone, please accept my deepest apologies. Everyone here needs to be acknowledged for their contributions.
This blog is not about conspiracies; this blog is about fact finding missions and discovering the truth and webs of connections behind the lies. Due to all of the dedicated researchers gathering here, people are realizing that “The Monster” is more about facts than commentary.
I put up this new format a little over a month ago and am still trying to find the time to tweak it and add important features. Here is your chance to tell me everything right about this page and everything that you think sucks rocks before I spend valuable research time doing housekeeping. This blog is as much yours as it is mine and I consider your input necessary and valuable. Have at it monsters and once again, many mahalos for the time you spend here and the donations that The Monster has received to keep it going!

Completely off-topic but I just heard from Navyvet48 (in Kansas) that there are two confirmed reports of this new flu there. How many of you think that this outbreak is a way to keep the tea parties from happening?
Also, for all of you stopping by that are wondering the how, the why, the what, the when of impeaching the brat in the White House; that post is coming….
