My next blogging venture

I am pleased to announce the birth of a new blog: The Mischiefs of Faction. This is a collaborative venture, founded by Greg Koger, Hans Noel, and me. It went live at 9AM EDT this morning.

You can read all the details in our inaugural post, but basically, we've been talking for a while about doing something that focuses on political parties, broadly defined. We'll be posting material this week on Madison's views of parties, the nature of flip-floppers in modern presidential campaigns, the constraints parties place on presidents, some innovations by parties in state elections, and many other things. I hope you'll check it out and offer your comments.

I'm not yet sure about the future of Enik Rising. I'll be cross-posting for a while, but I'll be thinking about whether to maintain this blog. I welcome your suggestions.

Keep it! While the new blog will be great, my favorite blogs always have a single authorial voice-- and yours is a good one.

Thanks, Steve!

Steve's advice is sage. Enik Rising is a wonderful blog, and if you think you can produce content enough for both, it's well worth keeping alive. As a loyal reader (and favorite advisee, might I add), I hope you keep it up and running. But if you choose to shift over full time to Mischiefs, I think I speak for all of ENIK NATION when I say I'll follow you there in the blink of an eye.
