Progressive state blogs: Weekly roundup

Saturdays are important days in the progressive political blogosphere, thanks to the hard work of Meteor Blades at Daily Kos. Each week, MB posts a roundup of action from around the country, as reported by our counterparts in other state blogs. You can find the diary here.

A few years ago, Markos (of Daily Kos) wrote that he empathized with the challenges of running a state blog. We don't have the sexiness of national politics, and we rarely have that critical mass of readers needed to drive meaningful change. That said, say BlueNC is doing a good job holding its own in today's information marketplace. We continue to have upwards of 5000 visitors each week, and a steadily growing number of registered users.

We may not have Art Pope's multimillion dollar opinion manufacturing machine behind us, but we're still kicking ass.

Even though I don't comment that often...

... I lurk a lot and really appreciate the hard work you guys put in. This blog nurtures the progressive community and we need that.
