I’ve got a question

I have no intention of turning Peach Pundit into the chronicles of my campaign. You can go to my personal website for that.

The question I have is, do you guys want me to mention it at all? I’m perfectly willing to avoid the issue here. Likewise, got a slogan suggestion? We should have fun with that. Heh. Oh, and I’m wondering if in the spirit of Web 2.0 openness should I put a tracker on my “contribute now” button to show how much I’ve raised thus far.

Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

    I think you running for Macon City Council is as relevant as any other news in Georgia. Plus, it’s your blog.

    I think it would be tacky to turn it into a place where you just post press release after post release, but if it is treated the same way that any other political topic is handled, then I think it would be interesting to read about.

    It is newsworthy when a blogger runs for office, but yeah, you don’t want to overwhelm the site. Maybe do a weekly or bi-weekly or as-it’s-relevant update with links to all the campaign-related posts you’ve written on your site. Two or four posts a month isn’t flooding the site given that there’s sometimes 8 or 10 posts a day here.

    Yes.

    I agree with Buzz’s agreement with Doug and Rusty. This saves me from having to agree with Rusty directly. 🙂

    I agree with Chris about not wanting to agree with Rusty.

    Spacey, I didn’t know that you were a Baptist.

    Yeah, if we wanted that, we’d ask you to free Bull Moose.

    Hey wait a second…

    The only thing I ask is that you put the campaign tag for you and buzz BELOW the recent comments section.
