Hi and welcome to North Carolina Beagle, a conservative watchdog blog.
I’m Katy, the founder and main writer and I plan on continuing much of the work I did while writing Katy’s Conservative Corner (KCC). For the better part of 16 years, that was my baby and I was the first statewide blogger in North Carolina. Fellow activist, Frank Williams, had started NC Republican Roundtable, but it wasn’t quite a blog and it wasn’t quite statewide. But thanks to him, I got the idea and the blog took off.
Today, there are many imitators and there are a few excellent blogs. There are also groups that have moved in to fill the niche. I appreciate the NC Civitas Institute, NC Americans for Prosperity, the John Locke Foundation and others for doing the heavy lifting (research) and sharing it with we bloggers and activists.
After a two-year hiatus, it was time to make a return. I also felt it was time for a name and look change and I enlisted Michael Savage and his company, Red Metal Box.
They did a fantastic job for a great price! I highly recommend them as I’ve used him on several other sites that I currently run or have run.
I make no money on this blog and probably never will. It will be nothing but expenditures, so at times, I’ll have to curtail my travel when financial circumstances call for it.
I hated missing this weekend’s NC Republican Party convention. It’s usually a must-attend and for personal reasons, I couldn’t go. But, wait until next year…
I’m also a regular at CPAC and at the Americans for Prosperity events, both statewide and nationally. I’m also active in Smart Girl Politics.
As a proud mom, wife, and beagle owner, I’m excited to be here again. I’m also a DJ so I keep busy.
