NEPAsarge Veteran Voice

One of the very best ways to get your blog noticed is to leave thoughtful and intelligent comments on other, well-trafficed blogs. Not of the "hey, you wanna exchange links?" variety, but something that might cause a reader to click through your name to see who you are and what your blog is about.

NEPAsarge is one of those. I just spotted him in a comment on Gort's site, though he's been around for a few weeks.

NEPAsarge Veteran Voice

From the first post:

I thought it would be fitting for me to start this blog on Memorial Day weekend since this is a time when we recognize those that sacrificed the greatest things we hold, our lives, to protect this nation. It also recognizes those veterans, soldiers, and families that serve too. The purpose of this blog is to address political issues that veteran community faces. It also is to add views on sports, news, and hobbies.

Old Forge Coal Mines

Not a blog, but still an interesting site for people interested in Northeastern Pennsylvania's Anthracite past.


Our Intent is to preserve the vanishing history and heritage of the coal mines, colliers, and breakers that were located in Old Forge Pennsylvania for future generations, and to gather all the information into one location.

Fracking Underground

Another site dedicated to getting the word out about natural gas drilling:

Fracking Underground

From the introductory post:
I've been watching this whole Marcellus Shame thing develop for quite a spell. I gotta say that the people who oppose this intrusion by the Natural Gas ( NG: also for No Good ) industry are, for the most part , right on the money - because that is exactly what this is all about. Nothing more, nothing less.

Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition

A request to add this site came through on May 24, 2010. Somehow I managed to miss it in TWO different InBoxes! Here it is:

GDAC - Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition

Unfortunately, it does not seem to have an RSS / Atom / Live Feed, so it will not "bubble up" to the top of the blog list on the sidebar when a new post goes up. So be sure to check the site frequently!
