When you start campaigning on an issue, it is good to connect with other activist bloggers. It occurred to me yesterday when I was writing the Twitter for Campaigns blog post, that I hadn’t seen a list of activist blogs anywhere.
There are lists of ‘Influential Bloggers’ and there are networks of Mummybloggers (although many of them are more activist/political bloggers) but I haven’t seen a straightforward list of bloggers who write about politics, current affairs or who campaign to raise money or awareness of certain issues.
I have googled and not found one so thought I would start one. The idea is to create a one-stop-shop of activist blogs to enable those interested in that issue to find as many blogs as possible.
I will start by creating categories, and will add blogs as an when they occur to me. If you write a blog or know one that you think should be included, please use the Contact Us form to suggest inclusion, giving a short blurb that describes the blog.
