I am a blogger. I am not a journalist.

Tweet

I am a left-of-centre progressive. I do not pretend to be neutral. I am a blogger. I am not a journalist.

I do not take money under the table from political parties, lobbyists or special interest groups. In fact, I make no money from blogging. I am a blogger. I am not a . . . → Read More: I am a blogger. I am not a journalist.

Some of My Worst Fears Are Starting to Materialize

Tweet

I always knew something like this would happen sooner or later.

Looks like we’re on our way to criminalized dissent.

Thanks, Fern Hill,  one of the good people at Dammit Janet who gets that Stevie Spiteful is anything but mainstream, for your good work and research, as usual.

RIP Penlan

Tweet

Anybody who had/has a progressive blog probably had “Penlan” come by to leave her remarks or if on Twitter, probably had some kind of interaction with her.

I just learned from Twitter and various blogs that she has passed away yesterday.

I only got to know her on line. She was a gentle . . . → Read More: RIP Penlan

Sister Sage’s Musings Just Got Nominated! And Dammit Janet Should Also Be Nominated! UPDATE

Tweet

Well, not by Canadian Blog Awards, at least, not yet and I find it unlikely that they would. However,  the good women over at Dammit Janet had noticed there was no category for Feminist blogs at the Canadian Blog Awards and had made noise about it.  Rightfully so, the fact that this group would overlook some . . . → Read More: Sister Sage’s Musings Just Got Nominated!

New Guest Blogger to Take Over During My Absence

Tweet

Like I said, as my blogging will be sporadic, for awhile and I don’t want my site to go downhill, I have asked Jymn from Let Freedom Rain blog over here for awhile. He has graciously agreed to help me out while I take care of my housing matters and such.

As mentioned, . . . → Read More: New Guest Blogger to Take Over During My Absence

Sporadic Blogging Ahead

Tweet

Yeah, I’m still alive, kick and breathing and barely at that. Long story, which, pursuant to my advocate’s advice, I can’t blog about right row until after I have seen them later today. Then we’ll see, it is and will be a story worth telling, as I don’t wish for anyone to go . . . → Read More: Sporadic Blogging Ahead

New Contributor At Sister Sage’s Musings

Tweet

Some of the Prog Bloggers are probably familiar with her. She comments on the prog bloggers regularly, Kim.  She had expressed an interest in blogging, but wasn’t sure about committing to a site of her own. Since I have been looking for contributors, I invited her to try her hand here, at Sister . . . → Read More: New Contributor At Sister Sage’s Musings

Sister Sage’s Musings Turns One Today – And What a Learning Experience It Has Been! Sharing Memories

Tweet

It seems  just like yesterday I began my first post when SSM was at blogspot, back in the days with those rather boring looking cookie-cutter themes. I noticed Blogger has improved on that since then.

What’s funny is that I had never meant for Sister Sage’s Musings to be a political blog.  When . . . → Read More: Sister Sage’s Musings Turns One Today – And What a Learning Experience It Has Been! Sharing Memories

Female Bloggers vs Many Female Columnists

Tweet

I thought Jane Taber was insipid, particularly when Question Period isn’t playing on the big TV screen. Truth be told, many of these women columnists are a disappointment in this day and age and I have to wonder why they actually get paid to write: Christy Blatchford, Gloria Galloway and now, this Margaret . . . → Read More: Female Bloggers vs Many Female Columnists
