Well, we managed to squeeze our way into the Right Wing News 6th Annual edition of the Best Conservative Blogs For 2012.  Number 60.

Thanks to John Hawkins at Right Wing News for the honor, and hopefully we can climb our way up the ranks a bit as we head into our second year.

That said, all of the blogs that made the list deserve a round of applause.  They make for great reading on a near-daily basis, and they set about doing the work the “real” media never does – mainly, delivering the truth.

Today is Our One Month Blogiversary!

January 27, 2012 at 9:58 am (Abortion, Big Government, Blogiversary, Doug Ross, Instapundit, Linkiest, New York, NewsBusters, Other McCain, Right Wing News, Technorati, Voter Fraud)

Alright, so maybe celebrating by months isn’t very professional… But we’re excited about our one month anniversary here at The Mental Recession!

We’ve had plenty of exciting developments here in the first 30 days, including:

  • Over 18,750 readers – that’s pretty good for the first month.
  • Linked to from such prestigious conservative sites as – Instapundit, the Other McCain, Right Wing News, Linkiest, Big Government, Doug Ross, and NewsBusters.
  • Lauded for our work in covering the upstate New York voter fraud case, and the Democrat cover-up of an abortion doctor now being charged with murder.  Okay, lauded might be a strong word, but it’s certainly been appreciated coverage.  🙂
  • Currently sitting at 113 on the Technorati list of top U.S. political sites.  Again, not too shabby for a brand new blog.

We just wanted to say thanks to all those who have stopped in to read our ramblings, especially those who have taken the time to make comments and have their voices heard as well.

We’d also like to hear some more feedback.  What can we do to make the site better?  Any comments/suggestions?  Do you have something you can contribute to The Mental Recession?  News story or commentary?  Please drop us a line at

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for your support!
