Once again, we will be cleaning up the link fest at the bottom right. Those sites that haven't had any changes in a couple years will likely be removed.
RightMichigan.com is seeing unprecedented popularity, and the ranking for this site has improved by a third in the last two months alone. As this is typed, RM is ranked #102,885 in the world, and has improved its standing amongst conservative blogs nationally to about the 77th spot. (DBKP report a little behind as of this writing)This means we are hitting a lot of folks and getting the gears turning upstairs.
And while we are coming into the new election cycle, I want to make sure that your blogs are updated so we can send traffic to them, and encourage you to keep on making your principled stands. But sometimes folks just plain stop writing. It sometimes takes a little more time than is available, and in other ways might not seem as rewarding.
But we need to have strong conservative voices seen. RightMichigan.com can help that. Truth be told, Michigan has enough politics to keep 100 blogs busy full time. And many actually are.
So as I work this morning on Obama's comments in Holland, on some other recent developments in the Michigan US senate primary, and the realization that we will have starving college students soon, those conservative bloggers who need to get us updated should drop a link or two in the comments so we know where to look.

Arguably, no better way to light the match for the day, than taking a look at some of what Michigan's best bloggers are writing about.
Michigan AFP - HELLO... McFLY? Hey.. Is this thing on?
Apologies Demanded - Lobbyists arndt (hehe) bad guys
Motor City Times - Steve aggregates much better than this little list on a more regular basis. This time its the "Rocket Edition"

If you hadn't seen the story yet, perhaps its time. "The first clue should have been they didn't name it Michigan Watt" - The Other Club
I was hardest of any on MR. Snyder during the primary. I think however, if what he will do is radically different its worth stepping back a bit - Will Republicans in MI Legislature Derail State's Comeback? - RightCuz
Someone ordered snow for Atlanta. Suckers indeed.. Georgia on my Mind - Rougblog
Did you know about Friday's event in Troy? Putting things in perspective - Wayne County Taxpayers
Once upon a time I had a downturn in revenue for my business. I seriously considered (would have been a mistake) cutting out my advertising budget. Think of that when you read Survey Sez - The Voice of One Crying Out In Suburbia
Steve notes the progressive effect with "Details Of Detroit's Consolidation Plan Are Emerging" - Motor City Times

We will be working on updating the link list both here and at MTTM.
We could use help.
PLEASE if you know of someone who has their Michigan based (conservative) blog up, and is NOT on the list Post here in the comments. Also please post bad links you encounter.
Every now and again I stumble on to some great work by conservative Michiganders that I was completely unaware. It would be great to have the Sphere type links once again. One of the great starting points to a wealth of great commentary.
Update [2010-12-7 16:0:12 by JGillman]: I have killed dead links, and started looking at some of the links where there has not been posting for a year or more..

Surprised? Not surprised to see indoctrination of our youth as described by a Conservative teacher.
She had the students practice lines from the article, and pretend to debate 'conservatives' by offering up straw men arguments and then having the students act out how to be a super liberal. Once students became comfortable with the ideas, the thoughts, and the arguments, the teacher made them comfortable playing the part and believing in those things. With a sick feeling in my stomach, I watched the indoctrination occur, knowing that every day this is what this teacher did.
Given the acceptance in Michigan that failure at any cost is a GOOD thing, it seems the only explanation.
