  •  thanks, funny, same analysis i do for blogathons (5+ / 0-)

    we have our specific blogathon objective each time, like getting 1 million public comments against XL last time. i know that the 8 or 9 groups in the coalition with us combined hit the goal. Don't know how much came from DK. but there are always so many other benefits each time other than the end goal, such as bringing community together here and doing educational/informative blogging advocacy that is one form of activism. The energy and excitement is addictive. We also create new contacts with lawmakers and activists or expand and build on prior relationships. we bring in new registrations at DK and get some lawmakers, who have not posted for years, back to posting. after blogathons there are discussions continuing for future projects, etc. and i like how DK eco community is part of a coalition with NGO groups from across the nation, and sometimes globally.

    You've given me a new perspective on your petitions, which, i don't know why i did not see before. thanks.
