Quick Notes: Your Turn

I am looking at making a few changes here at Political Friends. Over the next couple of weeks there are some small changes I want to incorporate here, and I am thinking of making some larger ones. I have always wanted this site to be about political discussion. My goal is to keep people from both sides of the aisle coming back to discuss the issues of the day. To that end, I want to revamp a few things around here. This is where you come in.

In this post, I am looking for comments about what you like or don't like about this site. What would you like to see different. Is there a particular topic you feel should be covered more? Is there something you think I have wrong that you are dying for one more debate about? Same rules of no insulting, but anything else is open. I appreciate any input you have, and thanks for reading Political Friends.

Here are a few suggestions off the top of my head. Consider having guest authors from both sides post opinions on an issue; try to find other political bloggers that are willing to participate in occasional blog roundtable discussions; have question & answer posts; and perhaps add more foreign policy commentary.

Thanks for the comments. I am going to keep a list of everything people suggest form this post. I have been looking for someone with a different perspective from mine to do a guest post on here. I would like to do it as a "Point and Counterpoint" type debate. I would like to have them post something here and allow me to post something on their site from my viewpoint. So far, the bloggers I have talked to haven't wanted to allow my viewpoint on their site. I will take this back up and see what I can find. I think that could be a very fun post. So we are up too:

1. Guest post from a Liberal or Democratic point of view.

2. Blogger Roundtable

3. Q & A

4. More foreign policy.
