I have been assimilated

As you can see from the sidebar, I’m now a two-fisted blogger. As of today, I’m the third political type to write for the Houston Chronicle’s reader blogs section. It’s called Kuff’s World, and it joins Texas Sparkle and Polimom, Too in the politics niche over there.

Before anyone asks, the new site is not a replacement for this one. It’s a complement. I intend to do about the same amount of blogging, I’m just going to put some of what I’d be doing anyway over there. I plan to link to whatever I write there from here, so if you don’t feel like adding yet another damned blog to your feeds, you can still see what’s there. Here are my first three posts:

Please allow me to introduce myself

As for the name, Dwight Silverman, who recruited me for this project, wanted to keep the Kuff in the name, but wanted a different name. After trying and failing to come up with a play on the word that didn’t suck (we both emphatically rejected “Kuff Links”), I started down the usually reliable path of movie sequels. Unfortunately, “The Kuff Strikes Back” and “The Wrath of Kuff” weren’t quite what I was looking for, and the less said about “Kuff 2: Electric Boogaloo”, the better. So Kuff’s World it was.

So there you have it. A mere four-plus years after I start blogging, I’ve been swallowed up by Big Media. I promise not to change, at least once I figure out how to disable the implants.

  1. Hey! I like “The Kuff Strikes Back”! … You never mentioned that one, dang!

    Actually, it reminds me of Nothing Strikes Back, the black-light ice cream parlor that used to be on the Drag at UT-Austin. Yum, banana-chocolate milk shakes…

    But I digress…

    But what about:
    Kuff with A Vengence!
    Look Who’s Blogging Too
    Write it Again Kuff

    Charles in Charge?

  4. Tsk tsk tsk.
    (nodding)

    That’s OK, I’m thinking about moving to Merchandising!

    Congrats! See you at lunch next week–PROMISE!

    Well, it’s about dang time.

    Shame it’s not a link blog. Then you and Dwight could call it Kuff Links. HAAAAA HA HA HA!

    ………………….

    So long as they don’t mess with your writings, this is great news. Congratulations!

    Oh, and just to ask, what about comments? Anything?

    You really do such a good job. You are adding to the Chronicle’s (a brave paper at times, expand those times) range and information.

    And, as you know, people will be especially needing you during Hurricane season–you really were remarkable last year. I wish everyone good luck during this upcoming Hurricane season as we will need it. Get Witt.

    The more you get around, the better for everyone. You are a true community builder and leader.

    What about your archive? Will it go behind a subscription wall?

    Good Night, Kuff. And, Good Luck.

    I see they needed to balance their ultra-leftist perspective, with a moderate liberal analyst.

    At least they made a conservative choice 😉

  9. Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. The Chron blog is a real blog, so comments are open but moderated as they are here, and all my archives there will be available as they are here, too.

    Soooo…

    “Turn Your Head and Kuff” was taken?

    I hope this doesn’t ruin your “best blogger” standing with the Press.

    Surely they won’t see this as a cop out?

    Just kidding Kuff, congrats. Look forward to reading BOTH your blogs now.

    You could use Performancing to post to both blogs at once for those of us who RSS offline.
