Mashed Potato Bulletin turns 1 year old

One year ago this week, yesterday actually, the Mashed Potato Bulletin took its first breath with  a posting initially intended for the New York Times Op-ed pages. But due to length restrictions and perhaps a bit too ambitious for a first attempt at political writing that first article inspired a pursuit for an alternate venue. After much soul searching, more than a few scrapped blog names and one off the wall suggestion, the Mashed Potato Bulletin was born.    

Since that time, and after 291 posts, The Bulletin has been honored with a Versatile Blogger Award (thanks to The ObamaCrat), one much appreciated compliment from Mayors Against Illegal Guns for a gun control article rooted close to home, several Open Salon editor’s picks and a group of regular readers and commenters of which any writer would be envious.

I want to take a moment to thank all who have stopped by, stayed for a while and contributed to the fully enjoyable experience I’ve had here. In return I will do my best to produce read-worthy material that educates, informs and hopefully amuses from time to time.
