About The Daily Background

The Daily Background was a progressive political blog I started in 2005 as a freshman in college, it received more than 1 million hits across 7,450 posts. I stopped regularly posting in 2010 about a year after I graduated and began working full time. I’ve now retired the blog and the domain thedailybackground.com redirects here to prevent it from becoming a target of spammers, due to its high pagerank, since I no longer have time to fend them off.

The Daily Background was the first real website I created and set me on a path of web development. The blog had a number of high points, including exclusive stories being picked up by the New York Times, Associated Press, and even referenced in the syndicated comic strip Dilbert.
