President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte recently remarked that all it takes to extract money out of the U.S. is to insult the country and hope U.S. officials come running to make amends with funds.
“After Kerry visited the Philippines, he left us $33 million,” Duterte told an audience at Camp Lapu Lapu. “I told myself, ‘this seems cool. Let’s take a swipe at them again so they will make amends with money.'”
Even one is too many and we have long since gone past one.
Follow the money. Bring on the justice. End the violence.
Back in 2007, a small group of friends decided to build a social media blog. It didn’t take long before I realized that this small group of friends was really only going to be me, so I built. I wrote. I promoted. A good chunk of the traffic came from early social media sites like Digg, Reddit, and Stumbleupon. “We” were rolling in content and traffic.
Things changed. Work happened. Life happened. The site went from multiple daily posts to a single post a day, then every few days, then, well, it just didn’t get much content at all. A few stories per month simply wasn’t enough to build it up. When trying to grow a company and raise a family, the secondary hobbies such as building a top-tier social media blog simply became a low priority.
I started taking on guest posts. I wrote what I could from time to time but the passion started dying. You see, I work in social media but it’s not really a joy. Social media is a tool for me. It lost its appeal as a way to connect and became something that was necessary for my career. At the end of the day, that was the real demise of the great social media blog. I lost the love.
Today, the passion is back. It’s just not the type of passion that drove me to try to build the site. Now, I’ve turned this into a site that focuses on the things important to me: faith, family, politics, and news. My desire to see through the lies of politicians and mainstream media have helped me to regain the desire that I had lost. “Soshable” might not be the right name for a news and opinion site, but it’s the name that we have and I love it.
If you want bold perspectives with plain talk and value-driven goals, you’re in the right place. We want to deliver the news of this world and beyond. We’re glad you found us.
