RantFever 4

I pontificate but not in the pejorative sense of the word.

I meant to say farewell a long time ago, before I even left the country, but had to put it off as I scrambled to prepare for an expatriate's life and survive the culture shock to follow.  But as promised, I owe everyone this final rant.




The Future of Rant Fever

My friends, Co-ranters, and Rant Fever readers,

When I started Rant Fever, I envisioned an online presence where people could come and read my views on conservative politics. I quickly came to the realization that I am simply not that interesting. So I invited Dubya and Hoodwink to rant along with me on whatever struck our fancy. Over time, we invited others like 30dozen, Giullieta, ArizonaBoy, and Trooper and join in the fun. The requirements to becoming a ranter were fairly simple: the individual should be a good writer, should want to write, and finally, we should have a need to add another ranter. 

Now that Giullieta is soon to start her own blog, and now that Dubya seems to have outgrown us, I have begun again to re-think the direction of Rant Fever. Currently, it is a group blog. Membership is tightly controlled. But perhaps that is the wrong approach. Perhaps we should allow more people into this circle to stand on their individual soap-boxes and have a good rant. It certainly has not hurt us to pontificate (never in the pejorative sense of the word).

Before I go and do anything that may later be seen as rash, I want the opinion of the masses. Is it time for a change? Should we open the flood gates or should we just find one or two more ranters to take up the position of those that have left or are leaving? What should we do with this blog? And I feel like it is OURS and not mine alone. Thus, as a group we should come to some decision. 

What say you all?
