Had a little time on my hands during my recovery from pneumonia and used some of it to relaunch three web sites that have lay dormant for too long.

American Newsreel: I started it in 2002 as an observer on some of the absurdities of our land. It hadn’t been updated for a while so I redesigned it and put it back online. Still restoring some archives but it’s up and running. (WARNING: Newsreel contains adult material and often deals with America’s obsession with, and hangups about, sex. It is not for the easily-offended or the politically-correct.)

FloydCounty.Com: I’ve tried a couple of times over the last four years to launch this as a community news and resource site. Maybe the third time’s a charm.

DougThompson.Com:  While speaking to a media communications class a few weeks ago, a student wondered why I didn’t write about the many problems the media faces today.  Good question. This will be a media commentary site.

Each of the sites uses a different publishing platform and each gives me a chance to stay up to date on the changes and updates to Drupal, WordPress and Movable Type.

Give them a visit and let me know what you think.
