Livingston County Democrats launch into cyberspace

The Livingston County Democrats are carving out a bigger niche in cyber space with the addition of a blog and a myspace site.

The Livingston County Democrats blog can be found at http://livcodemocrats.blogspot.com.

This site is a true blog, and anyone can get on it and can actually post their comments. The Livingston County Republican blog is restricted to members only, and the Michigan Republican Party blog, ran by chair Saul Anuzis, does not allow comments. Judging by the ridiculous and untrue trash posted there who can blame them.

Clearly, the last election cycle saw the power and effect of the bloggers, both nationally and locally. It helped turn the tide and helped the Democrats take control of both the U.S. House and Senate. It also helped the Michigan Democrats take control of the House for the first time in more than 12 years, and it held us win some seats we didn’t expect to win.

We are learning more and more about how to use blogs effectively with meet-ups and other tools, but using myspace effectively is a new proposition, at least for me. After going to the Livco Dems site I was surprised to find the Michigan Democrats have a myspace site as well.

The myuspacer site can be found at http://www.myspace.com/livcodemocrats.
