Pacific NW Portal Syndication Change

As we often like to remind you, the Pacific Northwest Portal team has been hard at work building you a better website. Last week it was improved newswires, and so far we think that has improvement has functioned pretty well.

This week we're rolling out a more drastic set of changes, which involve a change in our syndicate. The "syndicate" is composed of all the different blogs that are aggregated by Pacific NW Portal.

RoguePundit, which was one of the original blogs featured on the Portal main page under the Oregon column, is now leaving. RoguePundit, while a great and informative blog, isn't all that progressive, (it is perhaps center moderate on the political spectrum) and tends to ignore many of the important national and regional issues.

RoguePundit won't disappear entirely, though. You can still find it in the Blogs & Websites directory under our A-Z listing.

And we're pleased to announce today that its place will be taken by one of the fine blogs on the Expanded Oregon page - Also Also.

Also Also delivers thoughtful analysis on national, regional, and local issues. It has been at the forefront of uncovering GOP distortions in the aftermath of the 2004 gubernatorial election. We're pleased to welcome them to the Portal's front page.

Taking Also Also's place on the Expanded Oregon page is Fire Dog Lake, a progressive blog from Oregon that is new to the syndicate. You'll be able to enjoy Fire Dog Lake's coverage of local events and happenings, as well as musings on today's important political issues - both here in the Pacific NW and nationally.

That's not all. We're also adding two new blogs to our Blogs & Websites directory - HomoPoliticoGeek and the Economist's View, which are also both from Oregon.

It's an exciting day for progressive bloggers in the Beaver State, and we urge you to visit Pacific Northwest Portal to check out the changes and tell us what you think. As always, your feedback is important to us!
