Creative Minds Needed -- Help Us Rename the KDP Blog!

It's been about three months since I headed South to Kansas to take over the online operations at the Kansas Democratic Party. I've had the chance to do some cool things and meet a lot of interesting people. But nothing has me more excited than what we'll be rolling out online in the next few months.

Our new website won't be done for a little while but we're leaking a bit of it today. (I couldn't wait!)

One of the newest features of our new website will be a fully functional, community blog in the style of Daily Kos. We haven't worked out all the kinks yet but we want to create a place where all Kansas Democrats could go to talk about their local party, candidates, and partner organizations.

Hopefully, it will become the new standard for state Democratic Party blogs.

This new blog will be 100% free to all Kansas Democrats. All we need to do to make official is give it a new name! Can you help us out by suggesting a blog name for our new community blog?

You see, we wanted to democratize the process. This party isn't about me, it's about the thousands of Kansans who believe in good government and sound leadership. They deserve a place to go where they can talk about their issues and their elected officials. That's also why we want you to name it!

Here's how the game rules work.

We'll be accepting your suggestions for blog names throughout the first half of this week with the contest closing Wednesday night at 11:59 PM. Thursday morning, we'll select the best five names from across the state and have you vote for the blog name you like the best. Whichever name gets the most votes by Monday, September 7th at 11:59 PM will be the winner!

Pretty simple all in all. If you win, you'll get to brag to all your friends and family that you named the Kansas Democratic Party's community blog. So if you've got an idea, click here to submit it!

Below you'll find the email we just send out to our list for reference. Thanks for your support.

Friend --

Do you have something to say, but no medium to say it? Well that's about to change.

We're excited to announce that as you read this, work is being done on the new website you asked from us last June. One of the signature features of our new website will be a community blog where you can write about your local party, candidates, and partner organizations.

It'll be 100% free and open to all Democrats. All we need to make it official is a new name:
