Is This Your First Time at Adam’s Blog?

Inspired by a couple restaurants I’ve been to recently, I decided to make this post for those readers who haven’t visited before. This will be an explanation of what the blog’s all about, who the bloggers are, and what our general goals are.

Our Mission Statement

To acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in our lives in all we do, and in particular, by being respectful to commenters and other bloggers. To become one of the Internet’s most influential blogs. To be known as a blog that states forth honest opinions rather than echoing a party line.

To be a trustworthy blog by practicing fairness and accuracy, and quickly correcting any mistakes that occur. To be part of our nation’s solution and not part of its problems. To be a forum for the authors to showcase their literary works and to always remember that there’s more to life than politics.

The Blog Philosophy:

Politically, I’m Conservative with a libertarian bent on some issues. The Tenth Amendment is a very important document at Adam’s Blog. Learn it, love it, vote it.

My vision for this blog is for it to be a powerful voice. We come at a lot of issues from a different perspective here. For example, most people treat the election of the President like they’re going to bet on a horse. Here, we believe ideas need to be discussed and debated, not just whose the best pony at the betting window.

I also hope to be a force for cultural reform. As Conservative Christians, we have plenty of criticisms of our popular culture, but we also realize that the church has its problems and we’ll point out when unbiblical things are going on.

I’m also active in Idaho politics. I write letters to the Editor in the Idaho Statesman and also am periodically involved in projects led by Brandi Swindell or Bryan Fischer.

I’ve come to believe that success in the blogosphere can not come in isolation. You have to help promote the work of others. That’s why you’ll see open trackback fests here every Tuesday and Wednesday and Friday-Sunday.

I also love satire which is why I wrote the Screwtape Reports, and satire can show up any day of the week. See here and here for examples of some of my better satire. Other essential writings can be accessed on the sidebar under “the best of me”

I also do a podcast Monday-Saturday which can be heard here though I always cross-post it.

My goal is to eventually be able to be a professional writer/blogger. While some may view that as a lower goal for blogging than pure personal expression, there’s no reason not to make a living doing something you enjoy.

The Bloggers

Adam grew up in the American West. As a child, he traveled widely before settling down in Montana. He was homeschooled and finished High School at 15, then completed a paralegal course at 17.

The job market for young paralegals in Northwest Montana was thin, so he worked fast food.

    Hi. I just discovered your blog and it looks to be a really good one! I think a lot like you and I have a blog based in Australia, but I’m half American and have another American posting on my blog (Salty Dog) amongst a couple of Aussies and a Brit (occasional).
    I’m having a bit of trouble negotiating your blog. Do your most recent stories appear in a list in one place?

    Hey Adam, was attempting to get more information on what network your show was moving to.
    I know, personally… If I was politically minded… For expedieny’s sake, I’d target local & state related politics first, then as I moved up the totem pole, I’d go more national… But frankly, that’d probably mean I’d have difficulty hearing your programs in the future. (I can’t get any radio stations from Idado in Blacklick, OH)

    Hi Adam,
    I wandered my way over here from your wife’s advice column and I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed both yours and your wife’s writing! I appreciate her biblical approach in all her advice giving and I appreciate and agree with most of your opinions in politics. (I say most only because I haven’t had a chance to read very much of what you have to say on here. *Smile*)

    I really enjoyed reading your bios also. Here is some funny info on me and my family. I was born in Boise but raised in Mtn. Home and home schooled until 7th grade when my mother had to start working. My sister was completely home schooled and she graduated at 16. My sister now lives in the Flathead Valley (Columbia Falls to be precise). My husband was born in Ohio (about 45 minutes south of Columbus) and we met while I was in college and we married and gallivanted off Germany with the Air Force. I just thought all the similar locations were funny, and I look forward to reading more of what you have to say!

    Thank you!

    Just signed up here after reading your pieces on Renew America, and of course agreeing with much.

    I have a Lot of potentially interesting / relevant information about Idaho Politics & Law, as well as a host of other potentially useful skills and background – and am always looking for another way to do some good.

    If you have a private email that can handle files I can send you some samplers – FYI

    Take Care & Be Well
