PZ at Pharyngula discovered this one. This one contributes to useful research (and a cool chart I hope). The Politburo Diktat is trying to track weblog lineages-who inspired whom to start blogging. Being a right wing blog, most of his responses are wingnuts. PZ thinks we need to up the moonbat representation.
My answesr are:
- Your blogfather, or blogmother, as the case may be. Just one please - the one blog that, more than any other, inspired you to start blogging. Please don't name Instapundit, unless you are on his blogchildren list. That would be David Neiwert's Orcinus.
- Include your blog-birth-month, the month that you started blogging, if you can. March 2003.
- If you are reasonably certain that you have spawned any blog-children, mention them, too. No kids, just cats. Want to see some pictures?
- Identify your blog as Left, Right, or Other.Left, of the bleeding-heart liberal and yellow-dog Democrat variety, although I could be convinced to vote for a yellow cat now and then.
As per PZ's advice, I'm forwarding my answers to the very long comment thread at the Commissar's site.
