Stealing my Schtick

Thanks to an e-mail from Stefan Sharkansky of Shark Blog for pointing out that the Seattle Times has launched (looks like in June) their own in-house blog. It's name? PoliBlog.

I mean, gee whiz, they couldn't do a Google search to see if the name was already in use? I am the first result, after all.

Since www.poliblog.com is also a website (although not updated), I never understood why you just don't call yourself The Poliblogger. Has a nice Arnold-type feel to it, too.

When I first started blogging, I did so under the pseudonym "Poliblogger" and occassionally am still referred to as such.

And yes, the domain www.poliblog.com has been sitting there, as it is, for over a year. I originally tried to get that domain name, but was unable to do so and am still mildly annoyed that someone has it, but isn't using it for anything :)

Grab it with a .us or .info extension. :)

Well, I'm sort of a pundit...and I post my opinions instantly upon having them...

I could be...a sort of....Insta-Pundit!

It! Could! Work! [/Gene Wilder]

Perhaps you could persuade the Seatlle site to add your page to their "Blogosphere" list. You might at least garner a mention on their site.

FWIW, I did write the Seattle site today; I gave them your URL so they could check out your site. If I hear anything from them I will let you know.

They may have stolen your name, but they haven't stolen your schtick! No one will ever confuse the two. I mean check it out...

But I too told 'em to find their own name-
Oh that'll do it.
