I Had A Blast on the405Radio at RightOnline

image courtesy of MetalInsider.netI just returned from the 2013 RightOnline blogger’s and social media conference in Orlando.  What a blast!

An early highlight for me was doing a one-hour radio show with host John Grant on the405Radio.  It was a wide-open talk-show format with John, myself, and Jordan Bosstick, the young conservative founder of Volkalize.com, a new political-social networking site.  Topics ran the gamut from “twerking” to illegal immigration.  The collision between pop culture and politics was probed from every angle.  We even had some fun with my Obama phone.

Jordan and I come from very different cultures and perspectives – young vs. older, female vs. male, California vs. Montana.  It made for some cool dynamics but it was also interesting to see how closely we aligned on important conservative concepts and issues.

I enjoyed the show tremendously and think you will find it really fun, fast-moving, and entertaining.  This is a one-hour program, but worth listening to on your computer as you are doing something else. Enjoy!

Right OnLine – Let’s Get This Party Started!

ROL2013This weekend I am headed to Orlando for the big conservative media event of the year, the RightOnline bloggers and social media conference and the ‘Defending the American Dream Summit‘.

AmericanDreamSummit2013Last year Americans for Prosperity made it possible for me to attend RightOnLine, and I came home energized and motivated to get involved.  It was the genesis of Rockin’ On the Right Side.  Over the course of the year, I learned a lot, worked on my writing and persuasion skills, connected with many great patriots, and most importantly won a few converts over to the Right Side.  It has been great fun and I consider it important work, as I am truly motivated to help stop our nation’s headlong rush toward a bleak future for our kids and grandkids.

At this year’s conference I will get to meet many of my new conservative friends and some of the brightest stars in media and politics, like Michelle Malkin, Ted Cruz, Greg Gutfeld, Rick Perry, and Marco Rubio.   A rich slate of technical, political, and journalism training sessions are also on tap.

RightOnline and Defending the American Dream is an enriching and exhilarating event.  Let’s Get This Party Started!
