EBuzzing Top Lib Dem Blogs, June 2014 – hello again freedom

Here are the Liberal Democrat entries in the top 100 political blogs as ranked by EBuzzing for June 2014.

It’s welcome back again to Freedom Central and Richard Kemp, with Charlotte Henry (Digital Politico) dropping out this month and Stephen Tall slipping into second place in the list for the first time.

Given the many previous discussions about the male-dominated nature of political blogging (or more accurately, blogging about party and electoral politics in the narrower sense of ‘politics’), it’s interesting to note that of the top five blogs, two are by men, two by women and the fifth is a group blog with a mix of men and women in its team.

1 (4) Liberal Democrat Voice Up 1
2 (22) Stephen Tall Up 2
3 (25) Mark Pack Down 5
4 (35) Jennie Rigg Up 1
5 (37) Lynne Featherstone MP Up 8
6 (50) Paul Walter (Liberal Burblings) Up 3
7 (62) Zoe O’Connell (Complicity) Down 2
8 (63) Alex Marsh Down 7
9 (68) Richard Morris (A View from Ham Common) Down 5
10 (70) Mark Valladares (Liberal Bureaucracy) Up 13
11 (72) Haringey Liberal Democrats Up 17
12 (81) Freedom Central NEW
13 (86) But what does Richard Kemp think? NEW
14 (93) Steve Beasant Down 16

Under EBuzzing’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.
