Blog Focus: firedoglake


I've been spending a good amount of time over at firedoglake lately and I highly recommend others do the same. I'm unfamiliar with the whole 'team blogging' thing, but ReddHedd, Loren and Jane Hamsher seem to have it dialed.

Their style of writing varies enough to keep things fresh and compelling, but their true strength is how much they pack into their entries. They blend their commentary in with great quotations and proper sourcing in a way I'm still trying to emulate. It's neither the hit and run 'here's a link, go read it over there' kind of blog nor is it a longwinded bandwidth-waster. Speaking of bandwidth, their image selection is almost always fantastic.

The overall package hooks you in and makes you want to come back often. And isn't that what this is all about? Go check them out right now.

Again, kudos to ReddHedd, Loren and Jane Hamsher.
