Speaking of Representative Noem...... Apparently we have a legislative Blogger in our midst
As I was doing an internet search to see if I could find the post I did where I pointed out why I didn't like it, I came across a blog reference with the same name as the new Republican State Rep from District 6:
It is about Him.Read the entire post here.
....For myself, I realized what a change I could have in my marriage if I approached my husband in such a way as well. Ester spent hours thinking about King Xerxes and learning about his likes and dislikes. She prayed for him and that her heart would be filled with love for him. She allowed her mind to focus on becoming physically attracted to him and studying his work and interests so that she might intelligently discuss issues and offer solutions for him...

I thought.... Nahh, it couldn't be. But upon further investigation, apparently Kristi is a regular contributor to the Everyday Woman weblog/website. According to the about the website information:
Welcome to the Everyday Woman Community blog, a place to share and connect with other women. This blog is simply an online conversation among friends.Read that here. I'm not intending anything positive or negative with regards to her authorship, but with her writing a column as a sitting Republican legislator, it is worth noting.
Barbara Cerullo and Becky Henderson are a mother-daughter team—and best friends—who want to help women find the extraordinary in everyday life. They do that through their TV show, Everyday Woman, as well as the Everyday Woman Community, a way to meet women and help each other laugh, pray, reach out, and walk daily with God.
As someone who has worked with candidates for years, I've found myself starting to warn candidates to be very, very wary of prior works. This past election, I did a internet search of a candidate who was going to run, and the first things I said as the candidacy was being explored was "Kill that My Space page - NOW."
It's probably why I'll never make a good candidate. I have a ton of things in print, especially on the internet. Some of it brash. Some of it bawdy. And most of it could be used out of the context I intended it.
So when a legislator takes it upon themselves to start writing an on-line journal, with thought and quotes, it's worth noticing. Because the other side will most certainly notice it as well.
