If you supported John Edwards, you probably are familiar with the Edwards Evening News Roundup at Daily Kos. The team who brought you those updates have created a new EENR Progressive blog, a forum for activists to talk about various issues and strategies for building the progressive movement.
Pioneer111 put up this diary about the new blog at MyDD. Key passage:
EENR is a community blog, and we hope you will be part of that community. We’ve tried to set standards for discussion that reflect our desire for open communication, the search for truth, and that wonderful lesson we all learned in kindergarten, “Play Nice and Share Your Toys.” There are lots of toys, too. There’s a wonderful video wall, lots of diaries already there waiting for your comments, links to a mirror of the JRE campaign website, and much more. We’ll have Open Threads, and special guest bloggers. And we’re always open to suggestions!
EENR has a really unique feature. We have 12 subject sections located on the left hand side. This gives us twelve front pages and if you write a diary with one of the sections in your tags or use the drop down menu in creating it you can be a front pager in any section except the Home Page. 😉 Please join in creating the community discussions in all progressive areas. It also means that candidate diaries do NOT dominate the discussion. Progressive issues do. We hope that more contribute to that point of view.
There are diaries on a wide variety of topics at the EENR blog. I encourage progressives to join the conversation–even if you didn’t support Edwards for president.
