Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Hey - yep it's me again... and I know everyone is really busy with GOTV but could you take a few minutes between GOTV calls to help Sandy survivors?

See the folks at New York Communities for Change have been busting their butts to provide survivors of Hurricane Sandy in some of the poorest neighborhoods of NYC with things they need like food, portable radios, blankets and more.  But they need our help.  

Those who live in NYC can drop things off at their offices at 2-4 Nevins St in Brooklyn (at the corner of Nevins and Flatbush) and if you have a car, why not offer to make a few deliveries for them while you're at it?

For those of us who don't live in NYC we can help them out by donating to their Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.  

They've set a goal of raising $10,000 and are soooo close...so let's put them over the top RIGHT NOW

So how does a pootie a thon work? It's easy...

 I will start us off with 5 pooties... then it's up to you.

For every pootie or woozle or pony or penguin posted in this diary by midnight tonight I will donate another $.05 to the NYCC Sandy Relief Fund.  

1. Recommend this diary- even if you yourself have no $ to contribute at this time (I can't emphasize this enough- I well know that not everyone in Kos land can afford to contribute $...if you can't afford it DON'T...there are other things you can do)...your recommendation of this diary will hopefully put it on the REC LIST so that others who can afford to contribute will see this

2. Tweet/Facebook/Email all your friends and send em the link to this diary

3. Post pooties! That's the easy part right?

4. Make a pledge yourself... a penny a pootie...whatever... as I see pledges come in I will update this main diary so we can all keep track.

Let the pootie party begin


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Now it's YOUR turn...3...2...1.... post!
