My Place in the Blogoverse

MY PLACE IN THE BLOGOVERSE….I don’t truly understand what this means, but the pretty picture below is a link map of the political blogosphere. I’m categorized as a “liberal infopit” (that’s the light blue color) and my immediate neighbors are ThinkProgress, the Huffington Post, Brad DeLong, War and Piece, and the Hotline blog. You can play with the map here (warning: it takes a while to load the first time). Search for your own blog or someone else’s and get a map centered on that blog. Zoom in and try to figure who’s linking to whom. A brief explanation of the whole thing is here. Have fun!

The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
