I’m testing a new commenting system that allows commenters to make comments using their Facebook/Twitter/Wordpress/etc. identities, and I’d appreciate any feedback you all have about how well it works (if it works at all) and whether it’s worth keeping. Let me know what you think. I’d also like to take a moment to [...]
Still kind of busy, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who’s made Blogging Blue such a success over the past year. Blogging Blue was just named as one of the best state-based political blogs by Chris Cillizza’s The Fix blog.
It’s because of all the great folks who’ve contributed here – [...]
As 2012 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to share a few random tidbits about Blogging Blue.
In February of 2012, Blogging Blue surpassed 1 million page views. Not a bad total in four and a half years, but it took only 9 more months (November 2012) to surpass 2 million [...]
So Blogging Blue has successfully migrated to new servers, and while things appear to be working fine thus far, there may be a few glitches I haven’t yet noticed.

If you’re reading this, you’re lucky, considering the fact that GoDaddy was hacked today, leaving tens of thousands of websites (if not more) unavailable.
In light of today’s events with GoDaddy, we’ll be looking to move our hosting more local, so blogging from me may be light for the next couple of days while I [...]
It’s come to my attention that many of you have had problems with posts being “too short” or “a bit spammy.” After a bit of tinkering with the blog’s spam filters, I think I’ve identified and corrected the problem. However, if any of you continue to have problems, please shoot me an email so I [...]
Five years ago Blogging Blue came into being.
It’s been a crazy five years (to say the least), but I wanted to say thanks to all of you who’ve commented and contributed so much to the dialogue here over the years. You all are a great group of passionate political junkies, and you’ve made this [...]
Thanks to the folks at WordPress, Blogging Blue now has a new/improved commenting system that will allow you to post a comment using your Facebook, Twitter, or WordPress accounts.
Rest assured, you can still post without logging into one of those accounts, but now you’ll be able to preserve your identity on Blogging Blue by [...]
