Brian F. Bridgeforth is a social media political commentator with a background that includes advising and managing political campaigns at local, state, and federal levels. His social media activities have caught the attention of CNN and the Wall Street Journal along with many politically oriented blogs.
Brian attended Piedmont Virginia Community College and Blue Ridge Community College in Virginia where he studied history and economics.
He grew up in a household where watching the evening news was a prominent feature of daily life. He developed an insatiable curiosity about politics and the world as a young man. The events of 9/11 motivated Brian to study international relations and foreign policy. After applying his energies in politics, he started this blog in 2015 as a project to help him learn and communicate major issues and events happening in the world. Over the first year of his blog, he garnered a following of tens-of-thousands on social media from all over the world.
Social media and blogging, Brian believes, are important ways of not only sharing thoughts and ideas, but also are important parts of the learning process.
Brian currently resides in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.
