Building progressive infrastructure

Someday, we'll look back on 2004, 2005, and 2006 as the time when progressives built the infrastructure - both online and off - to take back America.
From ActBlue, to Gatheroo, to the Progressive Legislative Action Network, to the BlogAds Advertising Liberally network, to the New Politics Institute, to great national blogs like MyDD, Kos, Swing State, and countless others, we're all putting together the building blocks of the next great progressive movement.
This week, we're launching another one: LeftyBlogs.com. Every 10 minutes, LeftyBlogs scans over 600 local progressive blogs and looks for new stuff. Then, on the website, it indexes it all - state by state.
In short, it's a very easy and very fast way for you to find out what's happening in the progressive blogosphere all across America. Want the latest on the Ohio pay-to-play scandal? Go to the Ohio page. Want the latest on the Maryland governor's race? Go to the Maryland page. You get the idea.
Come on over and check it out: LeftyBlogs.com. You'll be amazed at how rapidly you can get up to speed on what's going on in a particular state. With LeftyBlogs, we're hoping to grow the progressive blogosphere at the local level - by helping blogs find their audience, and helping the audience find them.
And if you have a blog that's focused on local progressive stuff, be sure to add it to the index. We're growing fast, and we want you in the mix.
