Irishelection and Irish blogs in the Irish Times


The Irish Times on tuesday is set to carry two pieces on blogging, the first is a look at the phenomenon of blogging in irish politics and whether it will go the US route, i know that most bloggers have their own reservations on that issue and will doubtless pick over the article tomorrow.

The second and far more important *ahem* is the inclusion of a piece on irishelection.com in the paper. Adam Maguire was good enough to write a piece on the site, profiling it and sending it on to the Times. They liked it and we struck lucky.

Also check out irishelection.com its a brand new site with a brand new feed.
The project was started on Friday night and the credit for the template and the amazing content (see PartyNews and an amazing Archive) must go to Simon. Without him we would still be in the dark ages.

    The website is looking quite cool. Congratulations to you both.

    One thing I'd suggest is introducing a 'fold' to articles in order to fit more on the page.
