A milestone passed quietly this week, but I wanted to take a moment now to thank my readers.
It’s been one year since I started the political blog at www.HeartlandDiaryUSA.com, and I can’t say it’s been boring! A few of you have been there from the start, and we’ve added a lot of new friends along the way.
When I retired after 34 years at the Daily Inter Lake in September 2018, I wasn’t sure what I would do, but I knew I had to stay committed to helping President Trump restore American greatness. I also knew it would be easier to do that away from the newspaper than if I were still managing editor.
So in late October 2018, I opened Heartland Diary USA and said hello to all of you.
Crazily, I have stayed faithful to the concept of a Diary and have posted at least one column every day to this site. That’s something like 368 days straight! Call me stubborn!
Please know that hearing your comments and getting your feedback is a large part of the motivation for me to keep going. The MAGA community is full of patriotic, hard-working, God-fearing Americans, and I am so proud of all of you.
So here’s the tally from a year. We have 145 subscribers who read my columns on this website, another 244 who follow me on Facebook @HeartlandDiaryUSA, 126 who follow me at Parler @HeartlandDiary, and 6,216 who follow me on Twitter @HeartlandDiary. I also share my posts directly on some great Facebook groups like Trump Train-MAGA Fan Club and the Ravalli County Constitutional Republicans.
I’ve also started up a YouTube page where I post “News Every Conservative Can Use.” (Click here to subscribe. I need 1,000 subscribers to be able to get YouTube to pay me.)
If you enjoy reading these daily essays, I hope you will consider purchasing one of my books. They are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. My new book — “The Media Matrix: What if everything you know is fake?” — shows that Fake News has been around for years. The “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy tackles the politics of the last two decades: Part 1 is subtitled “Bush’s Global Failure: Half Right.” Part 2 is “Obama’s Fundamental Transformation: Far Left.” Part 3 is “Trump’s American Vision: Just Right.”
The goal of all this work is the same — to promote conservative ideas, support our great president and to defeat socialism.
Looking forward to the year ahead! Thanks for your support. Please share this message and our website with your like-minded friends!
