Lib Dems match Labour in the blogging stakes

George Eaton writes on the New Statesman site:

Conservative blogs have established a clear lead over their left-wing rivals, according to a new report published today.

The study, carried out by Social Media Affairs, found that 19 per cent of bloggers identified as Conservative Party supporters compared to 16 per cent each for Labour and the Liberal Democrats.

The report Politics Online 2009 coincides with the launch of Social Media Affairs, the UK’s first major directory of political blogs.

I do not know if we are doing well or Labour is doing badly, but it is remarkable that we are level with them here.

It seems you can download the report from the Social Media Affairs site if you register.

That would be the report that says that NI is a labour blogging stronghold, and that Draper is still in charge?

I blogged about some other details of the report earlier this week on Lib Dem Voice. Particularly pleasing to see that Liberal Democrat councillors look to be the keenest bloggers.
