New Writers at OTB
I’m pleased to announce that three blogosphere veterans have agreed to join the fold at OTB. All three are folks I’ve been reading since my earliest days blogging and I’m thrilled to be able to bring them to the audience here.
Robert Prather started posting at his site, which went through several name changes before Insults Unpunished stuck, on May 26, 2002. He has an MA in economics from Mississippi State University and is especially interested in environmental issueues, foreign policy, and economics.
Alex Knapp is an attorney who has been writing at Heretical Ideas since March 2003. His interests span the gamut from the Iraq War to comic books.
Robert and Chris were already established bloggers when I started OTB in January 2003 and Alex was essentially my contemporary in the blogging game. All three are well respected writers in the center-right-libertarian mileu who can combine serious, thoughtful analysis and a lighthearted approach that I aspire to at this blog. I’m honored to be able to bring them to you.
My hope is that the synergy between these men and the current OTB writers will help take away the pressure to crank out content that can take hold in the blogosphere and allow each of us to spend more time writing about things we care about. That will make it a more enjoyable experience for all of us, hopefully, most of all the readers.
Welcome to them all.
