It Was the Year of Blogging Dangerously (and Successfully for National Journal's Blog Pioneers)
William Beutler, editor of National Journal's Blogometer, launched his blog earlier this year and has a lengthy run-down of what he views as the most significant developments of the year soon passing into the history books.
Danny Glover, editor of Beltway Blogroll, launched a little ahead of Blogometer and has been a spark behind much of the National Journal's plunge into the Blogosphere. His first post today is the start of a tracking project looking at candidate blogs for the 2006 election.
Beutler and Glover quickly established themselves as essential daily reading for many here in the nation's capitol and I congratulate them on a year of blog-launching successfully.
I am told from a credible source that Beutler actually launched his blog before Glover, but it was initially hidden behind National Journal's subscription-only access. Glover was the first to launch to the outside world.
