A professional information technologist fed up with Republican claims during the 2008 election turned to blogging to fight back. He details his decision to start posting and shares many of the posts in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.
John McCain’s announcement of his vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, in 2008 had at least one unintended result — launching an information technology expert into the world of political blogging. This new book, released with the 2012 election just around the corner, features the words that surrounded the nation during the last campaign for the White House. Author Sean Bond, an Independent voter, began blogging with iReports.com on CNN soon after hearing the announcement to counteract what he perceived as negative comments and trash talking by radical Right Wing Republicans about Barack Obama. Bond has since moved on to his own blogs and tweets.
In “Blogger4Obama: Views from a CNN iReporter & Beyond,” Bond shares his passion for sharing his political views by including many of the more than 200 articles he posted. He groups them by topic instead of chronologically but includes a thorough discussion of what inspired him to begin blogging. Posting titles like McBush and McChicken, Still Zipped Lips, Agnew in a Skirt and That Huge Sucking Sound reveal Bonds’ way with words. His passion for politics shines through in the posts themselves, cutting through rhetoric to call it likes he sees it.
Author Sean Bond entered the arena of political blogging in the months leading up to the 2008 election. In just a few months, he became one of the top iReporters with CNN, helping keep people informed about politics. Bond has been in the information technology field for more than three decades and published his work in information technology magazines and trade journals. He has won design awards for computer applications and consulted with Fortune 500 companies on corporate development strategies and other topics. He frequently posts on Twitter and has his own political blog sites.
