Blue Bexley, Year Two

One year ago this past weekend, the very first post appeared on Blue Bexley. Blue Bexley came about for two reasons. The first reason was that I enjoyed writing about political issues, but I had become disenchanted with the diary system at the major national blogs I read. The second reason was that when I had sought out information online concerning races on the ballot in my new hometown of Bexley, there was not nearly enough out there. So I sought to be the go-to source for the 3rd Senate District race, and a top source for the 12th U.S. House District race. Along the way, I became more involved in writing about the Campbell/MacGregor race in the 20th State House district.

One year later, I still enjoy writing about political issues, and even though my readers do end up hearing about micro-level family and neighborhood events, as well as broader regional and state issues, first and foremost Blue Bexley has arguably become the top independent internet source of information about Bexley's municipal government and elections, as well as our representatives in both chambers at the Statehouse and on the Hill in D.C.

To celebrate Blue Bexley's First Birthday, I bought the blog a present: Blue Bexley now has its very own domain at www.BlueBexley.com. All of the old links and feeds should still work, but this should cut down on the number of people who have to use a search engine to find the site.

For those of you who have been following all of those links and subscribing to the feed, and to those of you who have posted links to BB, and especially to those of you who have left comments, engaged in conversations, e-mailed tips, and name-checked BB elsewhere on the Internets, thank you very much. Ohio has a great and special political blogosphere, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
