Attract. Inform. Activate. Motivate.
That’s the purpose of the new Townhall.com, and I hope the launch will inspire you to begin blogging today, or if you have been blogging, to move your blog to the Townhall platform where we believe your traffic will increase substantially given the nature of the more than a million users Townhall.com already has.
All of us at Townhall have long believed that the most influential voice in politics is from the person you trust the most. You yourself are an influencer on some number of people, large or small, who trust you.
But they cannot read your minds. They can, however, read your blog. If you start a blog, it will almost certainly be read by the people who trust you, people whom you can then help to inform, activate and motivate to take a greater role in the politics of the country.
Maybe it is just your siblings and in-laws. Then a few people at work. Then your neighbors or the folks you attend worship with. If you start counting the number of people you already influence, you can see how a blog will allow you to help shape the information they absorb.
And then there is the Townhall.com audience. Work at the craft and they will start dropping by as well.
You don’t have to be a great writer, and the set-up is very easy. It won’t take you long to get underway, so celebrate yesterday’s Independence Day by joining the millions of Americans who have decided to do more than vote by attempting to persuade.
Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you start a blog today, or if you move your old site to our new platform. Welcome.
