Walker Report celebrates one year birthday

June 16th last year, the Walker Report posted for the very first time under the name BCDPNews.

Now one year later and thousands of hits on the blog, we are doing quite well, thank you very much. It has been a long journey from few photos to an archive of over 15-thousand! We started as a purely Democratic blog, but have evolved into a political blog covering the non-partisan to the bi-partisan. Once we went changed the name, attitudes changed, our direction changed and we now encompass events that have nothing to do with politics.

We have become an equal opportunity blog! We cover education, entertainment, historical, sports, recreational, religious, community and of course, political. Days of Democrats Only are gone and we embrace everyone to the blog. We do have a few guidelines, however.

Since the blog is a family oriented blog, we don't publish vulgarity, trash talk, and we don't post photos that are inappropriate or lewd. We don't post photos of people holding alcohol in their hands either. (especially judges and elected officials!) We don't do gottcha photos.

We are upbeat and positive and try to promote upcoming events and then attempt to cover them. We cover lots of events the mainstream media never covers. In no way are we out to cast people in a bad light or put them up for ridicule. They can do that for themselves. We try to model ourselves after Publisher Tino Duran's La Prensa newspaper that also stays positive.

Elected Officials, media, business people and everyday people visit the Walker Report as many as three times a day to catch the update of what is coming next. Look at our short list of different types of diversity we have covered this year.

Folklife Festival, opening of Museo de Alameda, Sculpure's Dominion, SAMA Botero Exhibit, El Rey Fido,(Humane Society) UTSA events, school board meetings, neighborhood association meetings, Memorial Day at Ft. Sam, other military events like the Center for the Intrepid dedication and two Presidential candidates, the City Council campaigns, business networking events like Latino Breakfast, Wurzbach Group, Dr. MLK March & Cesar Chavez March, veterans parades, and political fundraisers.

We will cover the July 100 Black Men Inc, Golf Tournement, Senator Barack Obama's upcoming visit and finally we will cover the Spurs River Parade and the Alamodome event tomorrow!!!

If you want us to promote your event on Walker Report or have your event covered, email me at

We will be selling ads on the blog as well. Since we are going global and are so popular, you might want to consider it. With that, let's begin the second year covering the Pulse of San Antonio and Shedding Light on Bexar County.
