The reason I’m not writing about tonight’s debate, is because at this point, it’s just the same old – same old, with Trump’s HISTRIONICS and all.
Also . . . I needed a change from writing about the election, the RNC, the Conservatives and Trump. Frankly, I’m exhausted of it. I also want you to know a bit more about this BLOG and what goes into it, and why it gives me so much pleasure to write and publish my opinions.
THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR SUPPORT!
Since I started making my Editorials Public in 2001, reaching perhaps a couple of Hundred Readers at that time . . . I am now writing my 1,848-th opinion piece.
From Day-One, some people were upset with some of my opinions, and said so in emails. And my answer to them was always the same:
I write for my own benefit, mostly because I enjoy writing, and because I use my editorials as a form of personal THERAPY to compensate for the anger I feel at the Political Class.
And if you don’t like what I write . . . READ SOMETHING ELSE!
I would like to say . . . so what’s changed? But since 2001, Galganov.com has grown to accommodate a very large number of visitors, which today numbers in the many TENS OF THOUSANDS, not including people I reach through Social Media, which is substantially larger than what most Local Newspaper Editorial Sections, and Local Radio Talk-Shows reach on their Best Days.
And with each passing day . . . more and more people are signing-on to the Galganov.com Directory, growing it beyond anything I could have imagined at the beginning.
From reading the comments on the Galganov Comment Section on each Editorial Page, you can see how diverse the geographical locations are amongst the readers, with 87% spread throughout the USA, 10% in Canada (and steadily growing), with the balance around the world.
I am also very proud that I will not open this Blog to LEFTIST opinions. The LEFT already have more than enough of their own venues, from where they can spread their CRAPOLA in search of telling people like US, how to live OUR lives, while they try to live THEIRS on our money.
AND TO MY ASTONISHMENT . . . what started as a hobby, with no expectations of growth, Galganov.com is becoming somewhat of a player. We’re not about to change society, at least not yet, but at the very least, my opinions are being read and disseminated in an awful lot of places.
REMEMBER THIS PHILOSOPHICAL GEM: The gentle Flutter of the Wing of a Butterfly, disturbs a Distant Star. And that’s where we’re headed.
So, at the beginning, when it really didn’t mean much to me as to how many people were reading the things I wrote . . . I guess, given these newer circumstances – NUMBERS DO MATTER.
Even though the audience that reads Galganov.com is equivalent to that which reads significant Editorial Sections in “important” Local Newspapers, and listen to Local Radio Talk-Shows . . . This BLOG could not fundamentally be MORE different.
Unlike the Newspapers and Radio Talk-Shows of equivalent audiences . . . none of them come close to this BLOG in terms of REACH . . . and unlike them – I don’t come close in terms of Staff (ZERO), Editors (ZERO), Producers (ZERO), Salaries (ZERO), Facilities (ZERO), Financing (ALMOST ZERO) and Back-Up . . . ZERO.
I don’t answer to anyone . . . other than to my own conscience. And I don’t have to bend, not even an inch to sponsors. And that’s as refreshing as it gets.
What I do have however, is one great Tech Guy who gets paid for what he does when he does it, and one great Creative Art Guy when I need him too, both of whom charge me a fraction of what they would normally charge. But other than that, it’s just YOU, the SERVER PROVIDER, and ME.
I don’t know if most people can imagine how much time and effort is spent on each Editorial, understanding that the average Editorial is about 1,000-Words long.
GALGANOV.COM IS LIKE OLD TIME JOURNALISM . . . at a time when writers took pride and personal responsibility in what they wrote.
It takes me hours to Write and Research everything that is pounded-out on my Keyboard. But, to know what I am writing about, I also spend at least 2-HOURS every morning, reading Newspapers from all over the Planet, researching and verifying everything that you read on this BLOG.
Then I spend as much time as is necessary . . . following through with reliable sources, which gives me some inside information, or corroboration to what I think I already know, to make certain that all the FACTS are accurate and right.
And if you’ve ever wondered how I seem to be able to write stories a day or more ahead of when the Mainstream Media runs with them . . . NOW YOU KNOW.
I am also not doing this for approbation or adulation, since the task and the results are a passion that far exceeds a pat on my back.
I write this BLOG to spread the TRUTH about phonies, frauds and stupidity as I see it. And if I could do nothing else but write and publish this BLOG, this is what I would be doing, even at my own personal cost, which is the way it has been from the beginning, and still is, over a span of FIFTEEN YEARS, since 2001.
But I should be THANKING YOU for reading Galganov.com, and for helping this BLOG grow, and for your help in trying to change the world like the GENTLE FLUTTER OF THE WING OF A BUTTERFLY . . .
SO THANK YOU.
PS – Also, Thank You for indulging me by having read this Editorial.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
