Blog Oklahoma does not endorse any candidate or political cause that could be shown in the Google Ads displayed on our site. We've taken steps to block political advertising in AdSense, but we cannot guarantee they will be completely filtered out. You cannot trust some organizations to properly label their advertising as political.
Blog Oklahoma as an organization is politically neutral and will not endorse any individual candidate or political party. We will leave that up to our membership to do so on their individual blogs.
From time to time though Blog Oklahoma may make you aware of some events that could be considered political, such as blog action days for human rights, LGBT rights, or environmental issues. We will always represent this through our blog and social networks and not though advertising.
The one political cause we do however endorse is to get you to register to vote and to actually vote. This is one of the most important things you can do as a resident of our great state and nation.

No podcast this week. Yeah I know I just got started again.
I'll be moving my audio equipment to a different room, and I'll be taking this week to relearn a few things so I can get the audio levels correct.
I might release a mini episode later this week if I get everything working.
Thanks for all your support and feedback.
Last week's episode: blogoklahoma.com/blog.aspx?id=2225
Posted this rant about Facebook on Facebook last night. More people saw it than our last podcast announcement. Really??
Facebook doesn't like us. Feelings mutual.
Yes its time again for yet another Facebook rant, sorry.
Since we started posting here again, exactly 2 post got over 20 views, the rest are in single digits. (And we like each and every one of those views - thank you for liking us)
In the past we got more views for stupid random cat pictures than we did for anything else. So what's the point?
It appears Facebook won't show you our posts unless we pay them. Tell us we're wrong.
We stay on Facebook because you don't close off any opportunity to connect with your audience. So we trudge on though. We continue to share Blog Oklahoma updates, new member blog announcements, blogging and writing tips, and yes even stupid random cat pictures all in an effort to keep you informed and engaged.
We believe in the Oklahoma blogging community, and we'll continue in our efforts to keep you informed and connected.
Sorry for this rant, but Facebook is frustrating when you don't think you're reaching everyone you can. Its said you get more engagement and views when people "like" your posts, but how can they "like" them if they don't see them?
Again thank you for reading this and for liking, following, circling, and subscribing to Blog Oklahoma. We appreciate you.
Do you have any suggestions? Ideas? Random cat pictures?
