NW Topic Hotlist supports progressive blogosphere

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve added a new feature to the right-hand column of my home page: the NW Topic Hotlist.

The Hotlist culls headlines and summaries on major issues of the day, from some of the best progressive blogs in the Pacific Northwest. Up until now I’ve been a bit of mooch, snacking on links coming in from other Hotlist sites without returning the favor, but I’ve finally overcome my inertia and added the tiny line of Javascript that embeds the Hotlist into HA. It didn’t hurt. Really.

The Hotlist is the handiwork of Daniel Kirkdorffer of On The Road to 2008 (and regular participant in HA’s comment threads), and he’s recently posted an invitation to all comers to embed the Hotlist into your site as well. It’s a great way to share news and views from around the region, while supporting our ever expanding progressive blogosphere.

    JCH: Have you ever read the John Birch Society rant: “None Dare Call It Treason”? It’s custom made for an old-school Rightard like yourself.

    I don’t know how many HA readers have their own Web sites or blogs, but if you do, the Topic Hotlist Goldy is now displaying in his sidebar could be easily added to your own pages.

    Just click the “Topic Hotlist Your Site!” link found at the bottom of the Hotlist display. This will open up a browser window that allows you to very easily format the way you’d like the output to display. You then click a button to generate a Javascript tag that you can cut and paste into your Web page or blog template, just like you’d do with a blogroll, or any other number of sidebar services.

    Oh, and JCH – this service is FREE – hope that notion doesn’t scare you too much!

    “Progressives”: Dear Leader Jung, Senator Teddy “Chavis” Kennedy [D-Mary Jo], Goldy, Marx, Fidel, and Headless Lucy [Atlas has Shrugged, and Democrats are nothing less than parasites.] BTW, Maxine Waters would make a great running mate for Hillary. Anyone who disagrees is racist!!! [hehe]
