After lurking for several months on this site and a few others, I officially declared myself a blogger on June 22, 2008 with the start of The Progressive Electorate

Technically I launched the blog on June 21, 2008 although I did not start recording data until June 22, 2008. I'm pleased at our progress in promoting issues and candidates and even forcing ourselves into some occasional investigative reporting. Thanks to all that have helped us along the way.

I think it's appropriate that on our first year anniversary that Josh Segall officially launches his 2010 campaign.  

In honor of our one year anniversary I'm asking that you help us get our 2010 Progressive Electorate Act Blue Page to the $1,000 threshold today.  We are only $32 short. I know I've got a couple of $10, $15 donations out there.

If you have some thoughts you would like to share please chime in and let us know your thoughts.  I can't say it's been the easiest endeavor I've taken on although it has certainly been a lot of fun. I've made some great friends and I've learned a lot along the way. Look forward to NN09 as well which I would consider the most important learning tool that I utilized. It's been a great run and I hope to have an even better 2009-2010.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
