Early 2020 Blog News

Since my previous “blog news” post in late 2019, I’ve had some further developments related to the blog and blogging in general, as well as some new ideas for the blog. So, with that being said, here are a few pieces of blog news and ideas:

I’ve had readers ask me how (if at all) I will address the 2020 United States presidential election. The answer to that question is that I will look to address major issues relevant to the election that are either misunderstood or not talked about as much as they should be.

In a way, my recent post talking about the 1994 crime bill in some detail offers a sneak peek of what I plan to do on here this year for the election. By focusing on issues that are either misunderstood or “under the radar,” I hope that this little space on the internet can offer a fresh and constructive take on issues that will be discussed this year.

I will start a new blog series very soon.

As to what the series will be on, I have a couple of ideas I want to pursue at some point, and one in particular I’m leaning towards starting. You will find out soon, though!

I had a guest post published on another blog! My post, which was on why I think the United States is more into football/soccer than many people realize, was published on Renard’s World.

Obviously I’m biased because I wrote the post, but I hope some of you check out my post (which you can find here), especially if you want to see the side of me that is a soccer/football fan. I also highly recommend that readers check out the blog that I got this post published on, Renard’s World. While the blog really is on anything that tickles the fancy of the blogger (to use the words of the blog’s main author, Renard), his blog is a must-follow for anyone who wants to learn more about blogging.

Speaking of guest posts, people can feel free to reach out to me if they’d like me to do a guest post on their blog!

I’m happy to have a guest post on another blog about any of the types of topics I blog on at Blind Injustice (ableism, ageism, economic justice, immigrants, LGBTQ+ issues, mental health, etc.), faith/Christianity, as well as select sports topics (especially if it’s about soccer/football, NASCAR, or baseball). All you need to do is reach out to me on my blog or at blindinjustice2017@gmail.com. I offer only three conditions: that you’re okay with my sharing your blog (like I’m sharing Renard’s blog above), that you’re patient with me if I end up with a backlog of people who want me to write guest posts for them, and that if you want me to blog for you more than a couple times a year, you pay me (not that I need the money, but it’s just that I will only spend significant time on a blog that’s not mine if I get some sort of financial compensation for it).[1] If you’re worried about remembering all of this, fear not—I will add a “collaborate with me” page on the blog in the coming days.

For now, that’s pretty much it. I’ll only have a few weeks within the next several months (the weeks of Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day) when I won’t publish a new post on a Monday, so you will read more from me in the coming months!


[1] If you want me to post on your blog multiple times a year and pay me for it, my rate will be 10 cents an hour to start. So, while I’m not free, I’m also not that expensive.

  1. Wellllllll …. since you opened that door … I’d be more than happy to have you do a guest post for Filosofa’s Word on Michael Bloomberg as you know him, since few of my readers live or lived in NYC during his tenure. Just a thought … no obligation at all.

    1. Hmmm…

      Funny enough, I’m already working on a mini-series on Bloomberg as mayor (since there’s a lot from his time as mayor that’s “under the radar). And no, that’s not the series that I was hinting at when I said I’m planning on doing a series.

      That being said, when I publish these posts (it will be between next Monday and the following Monday), feel free to share those. Also, if there’s a particular aspect of his time as mayor that you’ll want me to go into even greater detail about, I can definitely do that on your blog! My mini-series will have a bit more of a bird’s eye view of his time as mayor, just because there’s so much ground to cover.

      1. Thanks Brendan!!! I will take a look at them, and thank you for permission to share them … my readers will be interested, I think, in the views of someone who is more familiar with Bloomberg than we are. After you finish the series, I’ll let you know if there is something else I’d like you to write, but I suspect, knowing your writing and comprehensiveness, that you will cover all bases in your series. Thanks again!

      2. You’re welcome! One of the reasons I’m planning this is because I thought others would be interested, too.

        I will certainly do my best to cover all my bases! That being said, whole articles have been written on his record on the environment, race, women, etc. while in many cases I’ll only be able to dedicate a paragraph or two to some of these issues, so we’ll see!

      3. I find that most often, people don’t really want to read a whole article, but prefer someone to summarize it into a nutshell for them, so what you’re doing may well be perfect! I’m looking forward to it!

  2. if you blog the Presidential election, I hope that you will look at the Case for Trump by the Hoover Institute at Stanford, and start from ground zero, open to the idea that the incumbent might be most qualified candidate and best choice in this election cycle.

    1. It was a piece run by the Hoover Institute, correct? I just looked at it.

      What would define a “qualified candidate”? If it’s governmental experience, only Steyer among the remaining major candidates is probably less experienced. It’s a commonly used phrase (“most qualified candidate”) so I would like to hear that idea fleshed out.
