Alberta Blog Roll

People are googling "alberta blogs", so I know there are some of you out there who want to read blogs from Alberta.

Starting a blogroll is tough, because it depends on network externalities - often the number of people willing to join is a function of people already in the blogroll. I need some good, pro-Alberta bloggers to answer the call.

Here is what I am finding: Blogs Canada is not that great when it comes to centralizing blogs on the basis of geography.

Having an Alberta blogroll identifies you as being from Alberta, and links you to a community of bloggers within the province. The blogroll will link you to fellow bloggers, regardless of content or political stripe.

Some potential members have expressed concerns that the blogroll would be dominated by right-wing bloggers, and have stated that they would prefer not to link to blogs of the opposite end of the political spectrum.

I say that this is precisely the divisiveness that Alberta Blogs hopes to overcome.

Instead of focusing on where people are divided politically, I think it is imperative that we focus on common ground. Everybody has something in common, and by sharing that we can be engaged in more civilized and enlightening blogosphere communication.

So join up! All you have to do is send an email to albertablogs[at]gmail[.]com stating why you want to join and tell me a bit about yourself. I will then send you the blogrolling code that will update automatically as others join in.

What's with the trend in googling "Alberta" blogs MK??

Don't tell me some of the centralist reds in such deep denial of western outrage over Ottawa public policy are actually checking the separation temperature out there?
