Link policy; new blog
Since I am often asked, here is my link policy: I believe strongly that a small blogroll provides my visitors with the best possible value. Large blogrolls full of random names don't serve anyone's interests, least those of the guy whose blog is buried down in link #422. Thus, I generally only include sites that I visit either daily or on a regular basis. While it would be nice for me to include a link to everyone who asks, it would reduce the effectiveness of the blogroll to the point of near-irrelevance.
I don't mean to imply that I'm some great arbiter of blog quality, but once I made my decision to keep my blogroll small, I got stuck with those parameters for better or for worse.
That said, I do want to start featuring links to bloggers with strong emphasis on local politics (from a leftist perspective, of course). That includes sites like Off the Kuff (Texas) and both of Archpundit's sites, Archpundit (Illinois) and Blog Saint Louis (Missouri). If your site has a healthy dose of good political analysis of the local political scene, drop me a line and I'll consider adding you to my new expanded blogroll.
After the election I will also be launching a collaborative blog called the Political State Report, featuring "correspondents" writing about political developments in their home states. My goal is to get writers from both the left and the right to cover all 50 states. If you might be interested in participating, please let me know. Thanks!Posted October 24, 2002 05:06 PM | Comments (8)
