Those of you who have followed for awhile know that I am very circumspect about posting political stuff here. I confine my own political blogging to a narrow set of issues, and I try to keep Sourcerer’s content 85% pop-culture oriented. That’s because I built this blog for two reasons:
- To be fun; and
- To promote creative work that deserves more attention than it’s getting.
That said, political science is my primary academic discipline. Political sociology and power relationships in general fascinate me, and I keep up with what my government is doing, which means I read a lot of political writing. I love, especially, to read what liberal Southerners and what women have to say about politics.
So, I am very happy to have discovered Deep South Progressive today. I share some local connections with them. If I were going to devote my blogging career entirely to politics, the blog I’d want to build would look a lot like Deep South Progressive. I never would have discovered them if not for social media. First a quote from their about page, then I’ll tell you how I stumbled upon them.
