Why right wing blogs have it over the left…

Iain Dale with a Tribune article on what leftist bloggers are doing wrong. Though I note he hasn’t mentioned Harry’s Place or Norman Geras two of the most high profile left blogs in the UK. In a nutshell Iain recommends:

Get your blogs talked about. Be bolder. Be funnier. Offer insight, not just predictable diatribes about Iraq and how awful Blair is. And above all, don’t assume that all the readers of your blog share your views. If they all do, the chances are you’ve got a very dead blog. When you get a load of Tories leaving comments on your blog and slagging you off you know you’re making an impact.
