I am compiling this list to prepare for the proposed Democratic bloggers summit.

It does not include blogs that are part of newspapers or other media outlets, nor does it include blogs authored by elected officials (we'll invite them separately).

If you think you should be on this list, please let me know in the comments. Likewise, if you think you should not be on the list, just let me know.

Howling Latina is "progressive"?!?!?

Joel McDonald said...

Virginia Beach Progressives is new to the scene. We're just getting started, but I'm committed to covering local, state, and national politics.

The Richmond Democrat said...

Yeah, I know all about Howling Latina. I think this will be the first little contraversy we have to deal with. Clearly she is left of center.

I don't agree with the way she behaved during the election, but I'm not going to set myself up as the judge of who is and who isn't a Democrat.

It's one thing to take her off my blog, which I did and which is my own personal blog, and another thing entirely to exclude her from an event meant for all Democratic bloggers.

Unless every other Democratic blogger disagrees with me, I plan to invite her. If she wants to attend, that is her business.

There's also "Coarse Cracked Corn".

The Richmond Democrat said...

Great tip! I've added Coarse Cracked Corn. Looks like a great blog. Why aren't they on Waldo, BNN, or Lefty Blogs?
