Make that the Summit/Stark Blogosphere

After George's comments to my earlier post, I thought a lot about exclusion and geography. I still think having a group of our own is valuable as an adjunct to the NEO MeetUp. But I want to avoid being a dick about it. So I've expanded the blogroll a bit. I've included current blogs from Stark and will include anyone from Summit or Stark or communities reasonably in the sphere of either.

The 'roll itself is a fairly eclectic mix. A couple of Stark blogs that didn't make the list for wont of recent posting would have pressed me on the "it must not suck" thing.

Though I generally eschew campaign blogs, I'm making an exception for Jeff Seeman since he does so many thought pieces independent of the campaign.

I've also expanded the Ohio list a bit. I've added some important blogs that I had scandalously omitted (Plunderbund, Meckler), and some good local blogs that are blogrolling me (Now That's Progress, Word of Mouth). I'm caught up now, but will probably be out of date again within the week.

In the meantime, if you know of a Summit/Stark blog or someone blogrolling me whom I have omitted, please let me know.

If you are a blogger on the list and haven't contacted me yet, I plan on getting in touch this week. If I don't have your email, I'll drop something in you comments. I'm gunning for a meetup after the holidays.

I live in Akron and have blogged since 2003 (just had my 2nd blogiversary). But I have a feeling I am decidedly to the right of you politically, I think I'm probably older, oh and I'm a female. My blog, while I comment on some political things, is full of my other interests as well, but it is has a religious theme.

Is that the type of thing you want to include or not? I'm happy just to lurk, but I thought I'd ask.

For the blogroll, I'm looking to be all-inclusive. The blogs on the roll cover the gamut of what people are doing in Stark/Summit. Also, you may be to the right of me, but you probably aren't to the right of The Boring Made Dull which is on the roll now.

I would probably draw the line at a mouth-foaming, venom-spewing rantathon like Little Green Footballs -- on either the left or right. Based on your description, it doesn't sound like that's what you do. Either post or email me the URL and I will check you out.

Oh, and Happy Blogiversary.
