If you’re like us, you can’t go for more than a few hours without checking the web to make sure you haven’t missed an interesting breaking news item. There are lots of places to go for breaking news, but until now, to our knowledge, there hasn’t been a place where you could go for the latest wire service stories, web-based commentary, and other news sources. So we created one: Power Line News.
Power Line News is intended to be the ultimate resource for news junkies. You can check out breaking news stories, see how the stock market is doing, and pick up the latest in blog-based political commentary via RSS feeds from top political sites. (More will be added as we go along.) In addition, if you scroll over the map of the world at the top of the site, you can access major newspapers from around the world. And the links on the left side of the page bring you the latest news from selected countries, and by category, such as business, entertainment, sports, etc.
This looks like it’s going to be a great tool for bloggers and others who want to stay on top of the latest news. Make sure to check it out! I’ve linked up to it under the "News Outlets" sidebar section here as well for future reference.
As for me, I’ve got some bills to pay and some reading to catch up on, so methinks I’m done blogging for the evening (unless some major news breaks). I’ll be around for a bit here and there to comment, though
Oh, and did I mention that I can’t wait until my new blogskin design debuts? I’ve given Lisa at Elegant Webscapes a few (ok, well more than a few *grin*) ideas of what I want and hopefully we’ll see the debut in the next couple of weeks. She has this amazing ability of interpreting my ideas into something much better than what they actually are I’ve enjoyed the blogskins I have, but I’m ready for something different! For those of you who want to check out the other two skins I have currently (and remember, they look a bit ‘wonky’ in browsers outside of IE and/or screen resolutions other than 1024×768) go under the "About this site" column and click the down arrow to switch them up. The "Geek Girl" skin is up at the moment because it’s the one that looks best in most browsers and screen resolutions. My personal preference is for the one called "Sister Toldjah" (it was the first skin here) and that’s what I view my blog out of here on my desktop and laptop.
