It’s about time to post a reminder about the expectations for comments here at Blogging Blue.
I’ve been reading a lot of comments over the past week or so, and I’ve noticed a very real trend of more and more off-topic comments, as well as comments that are more personal (attacking) in nature. This is [...]
I’ve long recognized that Blogging Blue is really only as good as its readers and commenters, and so I’d like to hear from you all.
What I’d like to know is how you think I/we can improve Blogging Blue.
You can comment here, or if you’d prefer you can leave a message using our contact [...]
On July 1, 2007 Blogging Blue sprung forth from the ether with this post.
Six years (and nearly 8,500 posts and over 48,000 comments later), we’re still kicking around. There’s been a lot of change here at Blogging Blue over the past six years, and I’m proud that the blog is as strong as ever, [...]
I’d like to formally welcome longtime commenter PJ to the fold as a contributor here at Blogging Blue.
PJ has been one of Blogging Blue’s most active commenters, and I know PJ will be a great addition to our team of contributors. Considering the quality of PJ’s comments here, I don’t know what took me [...]
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 – [...]
According to WordPress, Blogging Blue had more page views in 2012 than in our previous 4 years of existence combined, so it’s safe to say 2012 was a good year for the blog, if we use that metric.
However, I’d like to think 2012 was a good year for Blogging Blue because we broke some [...]
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 anything on the site isn’t working or something seems odd, please send me an email at zdubbya[at]bloggingblue.com and let me know what’s going on.
According to WordPress, an update I just installed should resolve the issue of email subscribers not being sent emails when new posts/comments are made on the blog. Hopefully that will fix the issue many/all of you have been having, but please let me know if the issue persists.
Additionally, in the next few days we’re [...]
