Two new sites

I'd like to draw to your attention two new sites that have been launched and that might be of interest to you.

One is called Tweed Renegades. It's a well-designed Australian site with a blog, radio and TV. The writers of the site make this pitch:
if you want a critical view of the follies of modern society, grounded in common sense and tradition, look no further
One of the contributors, Plato Sandilands, has made some excellent comments here at Oz Conservative.

The other site is called Reclaiming Beauty. Its founder, Kidist Paulos Asrat, describes its aims as follows:
I have started a new project. It is bigger than a website.

I hope to reclaim beauty from the avant-garde, nihilistic environment that surrounds us. Rather than fight it, I thought I would start a site that would be a study of beauty, a critique of our current beautyless, or anti-beauty, environment, as well as a place to give and receive practical guides and accounts on how to acquire and reclaim the beautiful.

I hope to have a list of regular contributors to the site, who will eventually become part of a bigger movement.
I'd encourage my readers to bookmark these sites and to stop by them when time permits. I know from my own experience that building up a readership is important early on. I think it was when my readership got past about 1000 a day that I began to relax and no longer worry that my efforts weren't worthwhile.

I wish those running the sites much success with their endeavours.


  1. Thanks very much for the mention, Mark - and thanks for creating one of the most intelligent blogs on the internet!
