|Cllr Richardson and Cllr Cole|
Regular readers will have seen my post thanks to all my readers about my surprise and delight at coming 39th in the Total Politics non-aligned blogs awards. Today Total Politics announced the top 75 left wing blogs, again I am surprised and pleased that I came in at 65. But the real success story is for Mebyon Kernow, with Dick Cole's http://mebyonkernow.blogspot.com/ coming in at 42 and Stephen Richardson's http://illoganblogger.blogspot.com/ coming in at 54. I think this is a real testament to the work put in by both of them and I always enjoy reading their blogs, their opinions and research are always informative and important. I do hope next year that the newest MK blog http://camborneandredruthmk.blogspot.com/ will be rewarded too
Generally as a party, I think Mebyon Kernow can take a lot of heart from this, we're a small force in politics, we don't have great amounts of cash and we are given short shrift by the mainstream media. These awards are a real sign that MK do blogging well and it's something we have to do well because of our size, our resources and our media presence. I am glad that we are punching above our weight in this regard and I hope that MK as a whole can take the example of blogging success and convert it into getting noticed in other areas of campaigning.
Besides Mebyon Kernow I am very glad to see http://cornishzetetics.blogspot.com/ come in at 48th up from 99th last year, it's a great blog well researched and scathing opinions, not one I always enjoy but one I always read. Also very pleased to see some decent Scottish and Welsh nationalist blogs (that I always enjoy reading) in the top 75, Better Nation, Lallands Peat Worrier, A Burds Eye View, Bella Caledonia and Scot Goes Pop and from Wales Leanne Wood and Welsh Ramblings. Well done all!
