We are pleased and honored to announce that Markos is our special guest who will commence our three day Kos Katalogue blogathon tomorrow morning.  Kos Katalogue consists of businesses run by Kossacks -- people who make things in America and who provide useful services, people who are making every effort to make their own way in a hard economy where very little help is forthcoming from the powers that be.  Kos Katalogue means:

COMMUNITY: People supporting each other
POLITICS: Envisioning job creation and healthy economy
ACTION: Public art donation

In short, Kos Katalogue represents the very spirit of Daily Kos.  And it is fun!  It is fun to see the creativity of our community displayed in a virtual marketplace.  

Over the next three days, you'll be hearing from prominent diarists and shop owners on various aspects of Kos Katalogue and its stores.  We hope you will enjoy this celebration of creativity and enterprise.  And if you have a small business you would like to include, please let me or Aji know!





Building Community. Creating Jobs. Donating Art to Community Organizations.




Kos Katalogue Blogathon: July 10-July 12, 2013


Daily Kos is the best progressive website for a good reason: it has, by far, the most vibrant, dynamic, and supportive online community.  While policy and political issues dominate everyday debates and conversations, it is the participation, dedication, and caring attitudes exhibited by the blog's members that has made this place unique among online communities.  In short, you are responsible for its success over the past eleven years since 2002.

When you decide to buy online gifts for friends and family members or for your own personal use, please consider buying an item or two from Kos Katalogue.  By supporting the Daily Kos Community small businesses, you encourage job creation.  With millions of average Americans struggling in this fragile economy, sensible economic proposals emanating from Washington, DC and the corporate sector are non-existent and, thus far, unable to stimulate sufficient job growth.  

Kos Katalogue consists of dozens of online stores, encompassing the talents of hundreds of brilliant, creative people and featuring unique items for sale.  It also connects our online community with towns and cities across the United States.  For example, with generous financial support from our community members, the Gallery Kos Community Art Project has donated artwork to community organizations around the country.  Such initiatives by members of Kos Katalogue facilitate networking in the real world and strengthen community ties.  

A Personal Request from Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse, Aji, and JekyllnHyde

Both sisters have been an integral part of Daily Kos for a long time.  In years past, the three of us have worked with them on several occasions in many blogathons and other special projects.  For as long as we can remember, they have selflessly comforted others in need and helped to foster a strong sense of community.  Now, they need our help.

Sara (Sara R) and Ann (winglion) are facing some hefty medical bills, vet bills for their beloved pooties, and a host of other economic issues.  If you can help, please go to PayPal.com and make a contribution to rainwoman AT mac DOT com.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.  

Kos Katalogue is easy, consumer-friendly shopping – just let your mouse do the clicking! If you hotlist this diary by Sara R, you will always be two clicks from Kossack-owned stores, covering everything from artwork to quilts to jewelry to scarves to personal services.

Please support members of the Kos Katalogue Community, as your help is needed. For those of you on Facebook and Twitter, please help to spread the word by hitting the FB and Tweet links at the top of this diary.  Use hashtag #KosKatalogue to tweet all diaries posted during this blogathon.  Our Daily Kos community organizers are Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse, Sara R, Aji, and JekyllnHyde.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
Choose where to republish this diary. The diary will be added to the queue for that group. Publish it from the queue to make it appear.

(The diary will be removed from the site and returned to your drafts for further editing.)
(The diary will be removed.)
Are you sure you want to save these changes to the published diary?
