My website is Free Republic Highlights and I search each week for essays that are written by those who post comments and articles on that forum. The rules are that it has to be written by a 'Freeper' and posted on Free Republic. I present them back in an order of the ones I perceive to be well written and when I think the author did a good job of presenting their point of view in an interesting way. So anyone posting there is eligible to be selected for Essay of the Week.

I don't mean to imply that everything gets covered because I miss more than I see, but it offers to the busy person an opportunity to see some of the better essays that appear there.

When you post on Free Republic, that post is eligible, but I don't always see every post, so, if you post a vanity post or comment on another post or article, just give me a heads up by sending me a message on the thread or send me the thread and post number via email to make sure I see it.

Also if you read what you think is worthy of consideration, contact me however you choose, so I am sure to see it and it will be considered. That really helps me a lot because it's like having an extra pair of eyes always looking for good essays.

If you are new to Free Republic and you are unsure as to how to do it let me know and I will try to help you.

Free Republic Highlights has had its share of woes this year so far. I regret that I lost this week to more repairs, and that it took so long but many of my plans went awry as my knowledge of working with the web builder leaves a lot to be desired, but hopefully we will be back in full tilt soon and I look forward to all the great essays and quotes to come. If you find something that is not right and needs repair I would appreciate a heads up.

Also feel free to nominate a post or quote that you find compelling and I will be delighted to consider it. I hope you will look around and bookmark some of your favorite features on Free Republic Highlights.
