  1. Dear Blogging for Boomers,

    My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.
    I’m contacting you because I found your blog in a health care site search and wanted to reach out to you to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of healthcare and its relation to the baby boomer and those over the age of 40.
    My main goal is to increase awareness on these important issues, and I was hoping you could help me. I am interested in providing you a guest post to be placed, but I realize this may not be a viable option. I am also willing to inquire about link opportunities. I hope to hear back from you soon.
    Barbara O’ Brien

  2. That was neat I must say. Too bad one has to be in WYSIWYG to use it, but then most people are probably in that mode. Great tip.
