Richard: he describes himself as a Lib Dem supporter (will vote Lib Dem at the next election) on his blog and is happy to be classified as a "Lib Dem blogger" in this context - so that's why I'm going by, rather than the narrow perspective of membership being the dividing line.
Here are the Liberal Democrat entries in the top 100 political blogs as ranked by Wikio:
|1 (9)||Liberal Democrat Voice||Down 2|
|2 (22)||Jack of Kent||Up 18|
|3 (48)||Caron’s Musings||Up 8|
|4 (52)||Liberal England||Up 5|
|5 (57)||Lynne Featherstone||Up 42|
|6 (59)||Mark Pack||Up 3|
|7 (62)||Liberal Vision||Up 11|
|8 (68)||Mark Thompson||New|
|9 (71)||Craig Murray||Down 20|
|10 (79)||Miss S B||Up 9|
|11 (80)||Liberal Burblings||Up 2|
|12 (81)||Andrew Reeves’s Running Blog||Up 4|
|13 (82)||Peter Black||Up 15|
|14 (84)||Nick Thornsby||Down 7|
|15 (88)||Millennium Elephant||Up 11|
Mark Thompson returns and Stephen’s Linlithgow Journal drops out. As the new Wikio algorithm settles down, the picture for Liberal Democrat blogs also looks a little brighter. However even with Caron now also in the top 50 (much deserved), there is still a huge imbalance – 3 in the top 50, 12 in the second 50.
Under Wikio’s methodology the overall profile of blogs that tend to support a particular party or cause can become a self-reinforcing cycle because the higher a blog rates the more its links to other blogs count, so those blogs in turn come out higher and hence any links from them back to the original blog count more driving that blog higher and so on.
