So, to all of the new visitors I invite you to take [...]

Quick Question for the Libertarians…

Monday, December 19th, 2005

Has anyoned received their copy of LP News for December yet? I had placed a small ad for TPW in there and I was wondering how it looked… but I haven’t gotten my copy yet.

Also, if any of you are monthly pledgers… was our interview with Shane Cory republished in the monthly pledge newsletter? [...]

Your Feelings on International Coverage?

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

Just wondering… what do you guys think of mixing in a little more international coverage on this site?

It wouldn’t be a major shift, but is anyone interested in the happenings of minor parties in Canada, England, and elsewhere? I was curious if it’s something I should pursue.

Message Boards are Back

Friday, November 18th, 2005

We had a little technical problem with the message boards and they were down for about a day, but everything is fixed now and they should run even faster than before!

Gearing up for a busy week…

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

The next seven days will be busy ones for Third Party Watch. It’s my goal for this website to provide the very best coverage of Election 2005 as it relates to minor party and independent candidates.

If you see a good news story, learn of minor party candidate’s victory, or have any photographs of campaign [...]

We Hit 20,000 Visitors!

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

It’s really exciting to note that this site has now passed the 20,000 unique visits mark, as recorded by the counter on the right side of the page. This counts only visitors to the homepage and not the encyclopedia or message boards, and it counts users not just page views.

Very nice to know there’s [...]

These are going for the insanely low price of $10 for THREE MONTHS. This offer [...]

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

Amazingly, I’ve got some free time over the next few months… not a lot mind you, but some. So I’m looking to do a little bit of freelance work.

If you’re a candidate, party, or even a business looking for a bargain price on website design, hosting, and such… drop me a line.

I don’t want [...]

Heck, Pictures Too…

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

Ok, I didn’t get much audio or video (yet) for the potential multimedia section of this site. So, I’ll extend it to photos as well.

Any images… campaign materials, election day photos, publicity stunts… whatever ya got.

…And Audio Too!

Monday, September 26th, 2005

In addition to the request for video, any audio you might have would be great…

- Radio commercials for campaigns. - Speeches by party officials or candidates… - Any recordings of third party gatherings… - Or even an audio recording of you telling a relevant story…

Send it all to [email protected]

Same rules and usage options apply [...]

We Want Your Video!!

Monday, September 26th, 2005

Ok, here’s the deal… I’m considering doing a video clips section on the website.

I really have decided exactly what it will be, how it will work, or if I’ll even bother getting into it at all… but I have a few ideas floating around in my head.

What I would like from you guys is some [...]

Here we are!

I started this website about three months ago, and now we’ve hit the 15,000 visitor mark… pretty cool. Thanks for visiting and making this possible.

The Pawlowski Comments…

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005

I’ve locked both of the recent threads about Jeff Pawlowski as there seem to be some people on this site who cannot control themselves. I absolutely do not want to make people register in order to leave comments, so please do not post under any name but your own.

When you post… I can see [...]

Banner Contest!

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

Hey everyone, I’d like to put up some banners that people can use to link to this site. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or the creative software to do it (I just bought a new computer and haven’t moved anything over yet).

So, I figured I would open it up to readers to submit [...]

Football Season is Upon Us…

Monday, September 5th, 2005

This site is fairly new and probably not ready to have an active football pool just yet… but I will probably try to start one next year on the message boards.

However, for this year, my other and slightly more established site (Conservative Pulse) is hosting a football pool… no money involved. It’s all for [...]

Dirt Cheap Advertising…

Monday, August 29th, 2005

Howdy everyone!

This site is viewed almost 400 times by roughly 200 different visitors each day. While that’s not a huge amount of traffic, it’s respectable… and it’s HIGHLY targeted at a very specific group of people.

I’ve probably spent more than $250 on promotion and web hosting since this site started a mere 2 months [...]

Who wants a free ad?

Sunday, August 14th, 2005

As you might have noticed, this site has joined the BlogAds network and will be accepting advertising to help pay for things.

I’d like to offer someone the chance to get a free one-week ad, preferably something third party related. Post in the comments and I’ll pick someone.

Take The Poll

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

You might have already noticed, but I’ve added a temporary poll to the sidebar on the right side of this page. Basically, I’m just curious what everyone’s party affiliation is as a way to better know where the audience of this site comes from.
