Building a Progressive Blog Infrastructure

During the conversation on Friday regarding the NPI blog report, I mentioned how it was important to try to build a network of local bloggers. Well, it looks like someone has done just that. Leftyblogs, a site that aggregates local blog feeds and categorizes them by state debuted yesterday as a way to find out what progressive bloggers are talking about throughout the nation. I think they're still working some of the kinks out, for example, their Massachusetts feed still has some holes in it and right now they don't seem to make any distinction between blogs that discuss state and local politics and blogs that discuss national and international politics, but it could be a simple way to get people involved in their local mini-blogospheres.

If your blog is missing, you can add it here.
