New Liblogs

The new Liblogs site is up and running. I've been brought on board as an admin, along with Nancy Leblanc. David Graham remains as an admin, and Adam Miron( former president of the Young Liberals and currently involved with iPolitics and the Wellington Street Post) now owns the site.

You'll notice a few changes, particularly a twitter component. I'd encourage more people to start a blog or apply for membership on Liblogs. Although we now have social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook to communicate, blogs still afford unique opportunities to express yourself. Twitter is limited by character discussions, whereas Facebook tends to be the same people talking within a limited audience. The great thing about a blogging aggregator, frequency of posting isn't a concern, you have a built in wider audience and blogs remain the best vehicle to flesh out opinions. I see all of social media as complimentary, blogs a great avenue for grassroots expression. There will be a lot of things happening with this government and party, so if you're considering participation, start a blog and join Liblogs ("Contact" on the site). Also, I don't think the feed is up yet, but give @Liblogs1 a follow on twitter to receive the blog posts as they come up.

Hey Steve

Maybe you should tell soneone at liblogs the difference between a map of AB and a map of BC.

I'm just saying...

I was thinking about it.... I had a blog a long time ago. It was interesting looking through it.

Good to see that Glen Pearson has jumped aboard. :D

I think you'd make a great blogger, lots of insight.

I predicted the Bloc had nothing to lose if they toppled the government. (But this was back in the innocent days of 2006.) :P

But I am thinking about it... :P
