We’re the #10 most influential California political blog

That’s according to BlogNewsNet, and who am I to argue!

And we’re #5 for liberal blogs.

The excellent California Progress Report is zooming to near the top of their charts, and, hey, Happy 5th Birthday to another fine California blog, Lefti on the News.

Their rankings do not include the 800 pound gorilla of California political blogs, Crooks and Liars, probably because it has national stature and scope. I’ve known C&L editor John Amato since way before blogging, played a minor role in helping him start it and like others truly did not get that “video thing” when he, way ahead of the curve, started posting video news. He, of course, has turned it into an influential powerhouse that gets a zillion readers a day.

I’ll be checking the BlogNewsNet rankings for other great California blogs I haven’t discovered yet.

    I wonder if you’d be amenable to using some of your influence to help promote awareness of an Open House that’s happening in Irvine on Aug. 14th? It’s being put on by the PR outfit that’s running the ‘Yes on 8’ campaign, details here:

    If this Open House could score a mention here, that’d be great. Thanks for considering this request, cheers.
