[Media Source*] (Cross posted on BNN)
Many of you have probably seen "Blogs for this" and "Blogs against that" around the net. Well, after searching and finding a "mini-clone" of Blogs for Bush I discovered that the original blogs for Hillary have just gone "Pro."
Welcome to the Blogs for Hillary website. We are dedicated to promoting the DNC nomination for Senator Hillary Clinton for the 2008 Presidential elections.
This site has yet to be developed - it is a work in progress. In the meantime, we are looking for a few good, dedicated bloggers to help spread the word and gain national support for Senator Hillary Clinton's (hopeful) bid for the Presidential office in 2008.
Although the original site was formed more in a response to these guys, the Official Site (Blogs for Hillary) seems to have nothing to do with it's blog spot friend. At the time of this post it contains only five members on it's blogroll, and not too surprisingly seems to have copied Matt's idea for how they enlist their members (even their image logo looks similar to Blogs for Bush).
The presence of Blogs for Hillary will probably spell doom for the original (which looks abandoned to me but they are claiming that is not the case) and it will be interesting to see this site pitted against the next "blogs for whoever" in the future (Condi perhaps?). That is unless Blogs for Kerry has something to say about this (although I really think the Al Gore Blogs should give up while they're ahead).
Last but not least I came upon this site which didn't surprised me (as their are many people who don't like the President) but when I checked out Blogs Against Bush I had to laugh (as last I checked Bush won the Presidency for the next four years). The site is "Coming Soon..." but seems to have come many months too late (which is probably the reason why this blog is so popular).
Although their are other types of blogs out their (such as Blogs for Firefox, Blogs for Terri, Blogs for America which is from Howard Dean) the biggest heavy weights in the blogosphere (also a blog) will be the political ones as they not only stir up passion for their audience but also have longevity in the future (Blogs for Terri for example will only be around as long as Terri is alive or given towards her parents for care).
Either way I would subscribe to most of these "blog types" as you may see them as major players in the future (except for the Al Gore bloggers that is). And as we all know the blogosphere moves pretty quick, and unless you can find a way to get "caught up" as to what is going on, you may find yourself left behind in the information swarm. Peace.
