Despite the blog being up only a few days, more than 50 people a day are visiting the blog. The hits are not only from all over the 8th District but from all over the county, such as Washington, D.C, Los Angles and Chicago.
We have already gained some notice. In the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus a three-paragraph brief appeared today announcing our presence. I also expect to see a story coming soon from the P & A featuring the person who started the blog, Liberal Lucy from Liberal, Loud and Proud.
The newspaper’s political reporter, Dan Meisler, has a track record of writing interesting stories on trends and how changes in getting a candidate’s message out are changing political campaigns. He wrote some stories on how some local blogs changed the way campaigns were conducted in the last election cycle. I look forward to reading the story when it is published.
We also look forward to input from readers and our fellow progressive bloggers in the form of comments, and if you see something we may have missed on Mr. Rogers please feel free to bring it to our attention.
