PHOTOS: The 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser with special guest John Dingell, the newly-crowned #DeanOfTwitter
Last night’s 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser is in the can and, in my opinion, it simply could not have gone better. We had well over 100 folks come by, the beer lasted until the very end, and we didn’t run out of Eclectagrog beer glasses to give away. Oh, yeah. This happened, too: Yes, history was made when, after being crowned […]Read more ›
A couple of weeks ago, Amy Lynn Smith posted about an upcoming awards dinner being hosted by the amazing organization Michigan Universal Health Care Access Network (MICHUHCAN) is a state-wide network that promotes comprehensive health care for everyone. When she posted it, I said in the comments, “Hopefully Amy Lynn Smith is up for an award from this group. She’s […]Read more ›
Today’s podcast is a conversation between Tony Trupiano and Eclectablogger Amy Lynn Smith. They discuss the Right to Life’s odious petition drive to force women to purchase a separate rider on their health insurance to cover safe, legal abortions. It’s been called the “Plan Ahead for Your Abortion” law or the “Rape Insurance” law because it forces women to literally […]Read more ›

Party like it’s 1999 and you’re back in high school

We don’t do this very often — it’s a big deal
Regular Eclectablog readers will know that (a) I’ve only brought on a new writer one other time (LOLGOP) and (b) lately Amy Lynn Smith has been guest-posting some dynamite content at Eclectablog. Today I’m extremely pleased to announce that we have brought Amy on as a regular contributor to Eclectablog. This means she will share in blog revenues with me, Anne, and LOLGOP and, more importantly, you’ll get to enjoy her excellent writing on a regular basis.
Amy and I have followed each other on Twitter for quite awhile. However, our mutual friend and organizer extraordinaire, Sarah Burris sent me and email last February saying, “If you ever need someone who is very very well versed in health care policy to write something for the blog [Amy would] be a genius at it. I think she should start blogging in more high profile places. She’s brilliant!”
This connection led to Amy guest posting a few pieces, much of which was about Medicaid expansion in Michigan, something near and very dear to my heart. Amy’s style fits in perfectly at Eclectablog. She brings a unique voice while at the same time fitting into our overall vibe absolutely perfectly.
I’m thrilled to have Amy on the team and I know that you’ll all enjoy her creative content as well. In addition to her writing here, you can learn more about Amy’s professional writing by visiting her website ALSwrite.com and following @alswrite on Twitter.
