Support The 50 State Blog Network

The explosion of local blogging was one of the great developments in the progressive movement during 2006. Entering 2007, we want to make certain that there is at least one community blog in every state, they are connected to each other, and that these state-based communities are integrated with the national-focused blogs. This will accelerate the development of local progressive media, assist with important electoral developments such as the fifty-state strategy, as well as increase both the political efficacy and social connections of local progressive activists around the nation. Importantly, we can do this for a small amount of money, $10 from 1,000 activists. When you compare this amount to the hundreds of millions of dollars that are spent on electoral campaigns every two years, this really is a tiny amount--equivalent to the rounding error for a Democratic media consultant! Join up with other activists to make the 50 state blog network happen..
Progressive movement activists have an abundance of good ideas, but often lack the funding to make these ideas a reality. To remedy this situation, over the past eight months, BlogPac's mission has been to provide essential resources to smart and inexpensive (though still underfunded) projects that forward the progressive movement. In keeping with this mission, we have supported organizations such as Yearly Kos, Drinking Liberally, Blue Jersey, and Blue America PAC. During the election season, we provided resources to important activist campaigns like Do More Than Vote, Use It Or Lose It, and Googlebomb the Elections. We also commissioned the first scientific survey of netroots activists, in an attempt to help dispel many of the myths about members of our community. Join us in our latest effort to make a 50 state blog network a reality.
The 50 state blog network is exactly the sort of project that BlogPac is proud to help get off the ground. With just a little bit of funding, we believe that small ideas from smart activists can take the progressive movement a long way. As such, feel free at any time to send us your ideas on new progressive organizations and campaigns that fit with our mission and do not need a huge amount of money in order to succeed.
