NC Politics 101

Of all the new features on BlueNC, the one I'm most excited about is the ability to collaboratively write and maintain books. Imagine an online reference where you could find everything you would want to know about NC politics—from your representative's biography, to registration dates; from a list of incumbents and challengers by district, to an in-depth discussion of redistricting. That's the goal, and here's my favorite part: if everyone contributes what they know, we'll accomplish it in no time!

If you know something about politics in North Carolina—after all, you do read blogs on the topic—sign up for an account (free; easy) and add to the book. I've laid out a few chapter titles, but there's no shortage of pages to be written. Don't worry about putting every piece of information in the right place—others are working on the book with you, and we can always move pages around.

We're Up!

BlueNC is back up and running and, as you've probably noticed, it looks a little different. I'll start with the bad news: we lost all of the comments on our old posts, and those old posts are going to have to be manually reentered. That's not a small thing--we have all appreciated the conversations that took place on this blog, and I for one am sad to see them go.

Here's the good news: BlueNC will be ready to kick all kinds of conservative ass in the new year! I'll be blogging about our new features over the next few days, but here's an overview.

  • We're going to have a collaborative encyclopedia of all things North Carolina politics, and you can help write and edit it.

Thank Sir Lance A Lot

(Promoted by TarGator to show my support for his efforts as well)

Just a quick note to acknowledge Lance and admire his amazing productivity! Here's to a wildly successful and very cool Blue NC . . . may we all together make a difference that makes a difference.

Cheers!

The New BlueNC is Coming Soon

"What's going on?" We're in the process of switching software. When the change is complete, BlueNC readers will have access to a range of new features, including a progressive NC calendar of events, polls, a collaborative encyclopedia of North Carolina politics, individual user blogs and more. We'll be setting up and cleaning up our messes today, so check back tonight and tomorrow!
