Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 8/7/2011 – Left Leaning Blogs Win the Week with 59% Improving

The Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 8/7/2011 are out!

The rankings have been trimmed down to only the top 50 most active blogs. If you are the owner of a blog that has been removed from the top 50, please let me know if you return to actively blogging. While there is no hard and fast rule (yet) on what constitutes an active blog, certainly more than one per month is in order. When I began to weed out inactive blogs, I used a 90 day guideline to declare a blog inactive. What I have found is that there were a number of blogs that may post once every couple of months. While time restraints take a toll on most people, and a blogging hiatus is sometimes necessary, one of the goals of these rankings is to encourage and promote blogging in Virginia. If there are new posts only on rare occasions, there is really nothing to promote and sending readers to a mostly inactive blog diminishes the value of the rankings and is a waste of time for readers.

So, if you were removed from the rankings, sorry about that. But please let me know if you jump back in the fray.

The bragging rights for Most Improved Virginia Blog goes to RightSide VA  up 30.2% for the week and rose from 47th place to 36th in the overall ranking, apparently due to one sweet post!

10 out of 17 Left Leaning Blogs improved (59%).

17 out of 33 Right Leaning Blogs improved (52%).

Overall, 27 out of 50 Blogs Improved (54%).

Here are the rankings: (Hint – The default view of to can be expanded to show all of the lines.)

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
