take a look at Michigan Liberal

Michigan Liberal is a regional liberal Soap Blox blog covering the great state of Michigan.

You may have caught them the first time through the national blog coverage this story got...

but if you take a closer look at the website, from the staff page to the page covering the races for the Michigan State House you'll find a regional blog that has built a powerful local infrastructure covering Michigan politics. There's also a healthy user diary section too.

Anyone interested in local blogs or Michigan politics should take a look.


  • Hello,

    My name is Elliott Fullmer and I am with the Sunlight Foundation, a Washington-based non-profit organization which advocates greater transparency in government. We believe that one way of achieving better responsiveness is through fostering citizen journalism. Therefore, in collaboration with the Center for Media and Democracy, we recently launched Congresspedia, a wiki-encyclopedia devoted entirely to covering Congress. The site receives 50,000 hits per day, and includes a page on each member of Congress (which can be edited by any citizen who registers and provides a source for their information).

    For each member of Congress, we are currently inserting links to local blogs which cover that particular member. Through web directories, we have come across your blog. We would like to include a link to your blog (free advertising) on the page of each member that you have (or potentially could) cover on your site. If you could let us know which members (if any) you cover, we will insert a link to your blog on those pages in the very near future. Thank you and please contact me with any questions.

    --Elliott Fullmer--
