Two days ago I sent my final election blog post for the Center for Disability Rights website.
Blogging about the 2016 Elections for CDR has been a great pleasure, and a learning experience. I got paid, which is really, really great in a way that has not just about the dollar amounts collected. I had to meet deadlines, whereas in normal blogging the deadlines are self-imposed and therefore kind of flimsy. And blogging forced me to pay close attention to the debates, which I usually skip because I can’t take the stress of watching “my” candidate possibly fail. I’m not sure any of the individual debates taught me much, but all together, I think I really did get a clearer sense of all the candidates.
Anyway, it was a great experience. I haven’t read all of these posts over again yet, but here they are, for posterity:
