Second Annual Bloggers’ Day at the Capitol

Lt. Governor Bill Bolling’s Second Annual Bloggers’ Day at the Capitol was as enjoyable as the first. Mr. Bolling is a gracious host, even with a terrible cold.

Wednesday brought many wonderful moments. A big highlight was watching republican government correct itself as the Senate voted to repeal the abusive driver fees.

The future fortunes of the Republican Party were clearly on many minds present at the afternoon session, which featured speakers Ron Butler of Creative Direct, Frank Atkinson of McGuireWoods Consulting, Sen. Stephen Newman, and Del. Jackson Miller.

Lt. Gov. and Mrs. Bolling treated the bloggers assembled to a delicious dinner of Chinese food, where we enjoyed chatting with Del. Tim Hugo.

And, of course, it was great just be able to connect with the faces behind so many Virginia blogs, including:

The Virginian Federalist

United Conservatives of Virginia

I’m Not Emeril

Spark It Up!!!

Spank That Donkey



Virginia Virtucon

Two Conservatives

Bearing Drift

Chasing Sophia

Thanks to all for a great day!


  1. It was good to see you again, Leslie. The Lt. Gov. and Mrs. Bolling are truly nice people and went out of their way to make us all feel welcome and comfortable.

  2. Leslie, I am so sorry I had to miss it! I was very much looking forward to seeing you and introducing the Darling Munchkin. I am glad you had a great time; maybe I’ll be there next year!

    Best blessings, my friend…
