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.
