MyDD's new blogger

Hey everyone, Chris Bowers is going to start posting on MyDD.  He's been a longtime reader/commenter of MyDD and DailyKos under the same name. I recieved a number of strong apps from qualified bloggers, and want to thank all of those who replied. Chris is currently a union organizer in Chicago, Illinois, with a graduate and teaching background in English and Writing. His writing skills aside, it's the ability of Chris to picks apart polls and form overviews that's impressed the blogosphere, so I'm pleased that he'll have a wider platform for his general commentary and the campaign and poll projects that he's started for the General election.

I'll still be posting here quite a bit, and am going to launch an electoral vote counter and overviews of the Gov, Senate and House races during May. But I expect as the election season heats up, I'll be working harder than ever consulting with the campaigns.

I've also started blogads, here; which hopefully will enhance the opportunity for Chris to reap some benefits for his blogging work. Some people don't like them at all, and for those folks, just know, that Markos and I have a subscription-based, ad free permmissions thingy-widget on Rusty's Scoop development list, it's just got a lot of other things in front of it...

One other note, there's not going to be a legacy MyDD, as bringing over the GM and MT, would require fresh installs on our servers, and then migration then... besides, it's all on the WayBackMachine.

Now, the last guy that I brought on here at MyDD (Mathew Gross in early 2002) used it as a launching pad into becoming the blogger in chief and internet communications director for Howard Dean's Presidential campaign, so, expect great things, welcome aboard Chris!
