Of Distant Shores: a new blog (maybe)

I'm thinking of starting a new blog called Of Distant Shores, focusing on world news, immigration, and US foreign policy. It's an idea I've been mulling over for several years, and now starting to think more seriously about. I'm curious if there is anyone out there who would be interested in collaborating in any of the following ways:

  • Co-writing the blog with me
  • Contributing on a regular basis
  • Contributing on an occasional basis

In terms of writing style and posting schedule, I'm leaning more towards frequent updates and numerous short posts with links to external sites. These would be supplemented with occasional longer pieces containing in-depth analysis.
I think there's a market for this sort of thing, and that this could potentially become an influential voice within the blogosphere IF its author(s) devote sufficient time and attention to it, and I know I can't do that all by myself. That's not to say that I won't start this blog unless I have help; I'm just gauging interest at this point.

Please comment (or e-mail me) if you are interested in contributing, or if you have any ideas or suggestions.
