I had the opportunity to do an interview with Virginia blogger Jim Riley of Virginia Virtucon. It was a great experience. We talked about the future of the Republican party – both in Virginia and nationally. We also discussed topics such as the Malek family’s involvement in charities such as Americans Friends of Cancer Research. Here’s an excerpt from the interview in which he asked about my entry into the blogging world:
“Jim Riley – Switching gears a bit, you recently started blogging yourself. What inspired you to join the blogosphere? Do you have any blogs that you like to read?
Fred Malek – Well, I enjoy writing. I’m very late to the party in being competent in the use of a computer frankly, but even being late to the party you can’t help but realize the power and reach of the blogosphere. At the same time I’ve got a few things on my mind that I wanted to share and invite reaction to. I’m not sure that anyone cares, but writing these few blogs, every couple of weeks – helps to crystallize my thoughts on various issues and is helpful to me. Occasionally I get some reactions that are useful. I read an awful lot of political blogs because it is kind of fun and interesting to see what people are saying, what their thoughts are and I learn a lot from them, but am not sure there are any favorites except yours.”
