HRC’s Buying for Equality guide

Since there wasn’t an overwhelming majority response for the Tuesday topic, I decided to just go with something I feel needs to be better publicized: Buying For Equality 2010. Since 2002, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation has issued an annual report card on corporate America‚Äôs treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors.

New post every Tuesday morning

They say that publishing on a predictable schedule improves site traffic. I considered doing this when I revamped last March, but I wasn’t sure how much time I wanted to devote to this blogging hobby of mine (“hobby” being the operative word). Since I average 3.63 posts per month, I might as well guarantee you a weekly post: Tuesday @ 11 am (EST) announced via Twitter, Facebook, and RSS (email subscription notice can take up to a day for some reason). I’ve got four blog drafts this month in addition to another one I’ve been thinking about lately. Help me decide which one to tackle first.
