Election Blog


I thought that now is a good time to post an update to the idea of a general irish election blog which would centralise irish bloggers contributions to the irish election. At the moment it will be hosted at wordpress.com.
Also ive been lucky to have gotten the following on board:
Suzy, Fiona, rinceoir, Saint, Kevin, The Editor, Gerry O Quigley and myself.
Update: Sarah Carey also on board.

I would welcome voluntary members to come forward but I am by no means done. Expect to see some random emails dropping in to inboxes over the next week. Im conscious that there is a chance (hat tip: Saint) of an early election so Im hoping to get it going soon. The idea is to get bloggers to log in to the blog and simple cut and paste their election related posts to the election blog. I will be getting some unique content together and other bits and pieces. Right now its all about members.

This needs support to work and I would love to have members of the irish blogosphere from across the spectrum. Email me as below or leave a comment, Id love to hear from ye.

The site will go live soon, get in early.
Also a major thanks to those who have thus far signed up.

    How about using a ".ie" domain and set up the election blog at www.blogs.ie. So you could have irishelection.blogs.ie (in fact I'll reserve it for you in case any smart- arse goes off and gets it).

    You can remove any google ads. If you need any special help in setting it up let me know.

    Never thought of myself as a politico, but looking back through my blogs, I see it does exercise me. I'd be willing to contribute if I can.
