And what do points mean?

This year, for the first time, there’s going to be a competition for the ‘Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year‘ at conference.

There’s an online entry form on the federal party site.

The party has declared an interesting criterion:

the blog that has done the most to promote liberalism in the last year

Not necessarily the same as ‘the most entertaining’ or ‘the blog you go to first’.

The competition, combined with the various bloggers’ parties planned for conference, suggest an encouraging increase in the party’s engagement with the blogosphere.

I probably will post here when I’ve decided how to vote, but first I am going to go and reread the archive of Lib Dem blogs and see which posts, if any, made it into my tags.

  1. the blog that has done the most to promote liberalism in the last year

    Contentious… some may argue that the ASI or Tim Worstall have promoted liberalism (or at least a branch of it) more than any LibDem blogs…
    Oh dear… the old ‘what is’ debate… don’t think they planned on that…

  2. Tristan – we actually chose that broad wording precisely to stimulate thought about what different blogs achieve. There are lots of different ways to promoting liberalism which aren’t necessarily just about being the most readable, having the most jokes or retelling the best gossip. Though those all can help too!
