You might notice that I’ve got a couple of ad spots that have opened up for new advertisers; One I’ve been assured is coming soon from a new advertiser, and another couple of them have been talked about.
If you’re interested in advertising space, on February 20th, aside from a few (as in very few) top level ad positions available, I will be opening up a chunk of advertising real estate where the Newsmax feeds are. These once held some interesting national political items, but they’ve now all become ads for age treatments and reverse mortgages. So I put in my notice that I’m reclaiming that space.
Otherwise, I’m more than pleased our current set of sponsors are going to be hanging around for a while. South Dakota War College continues to be the state’s longest standing and regularly published political website. And we’re not going anywhere for the forseeable future.
Unless I someday win the lottery. And then all bets are off.
Absent a massive financial windfall that would send me into hiding, we’re starting our 11th (wow!) year here at Dakotawarcollege, and we’re entering what should be an interesting election cycle, and the eyes of the politically active and community opinion leaders will all be pointed here in 2016 to this website as we see the elections for the state’s new set of political leaders.
Of course, after 2016, we start moving towards the big Kahuna – the slobberknocker of elections to end all elections (at least until another 8 years go by) – 2018, where our state’s political titans will be battling each other in political primaries.
And we could not do it without you, the reader. Thank you so much for your patronage, and for keeping a close eye on South Dakota Politics.
