Blog for Arizona: New Features!

Blog for ArizonaBlog for Arizona readers don’t come here for flash. You come here for wide-ranging political content that is not driven by advertising revenue.

Today, we made a few upgrades to the site to facilitate finding the years worth of blog posts that reside here.

At multiple events around town, activists sing the praises of Blog for Arizona‘s Community Calendar, which is maintained by Carolyn Classen, and of the AZ Blue Meanie’s Sunday morning Political Calendar.

To make the Community Calendar more visible, we have added a list of upcoming events to the home page. The full Community Calendar still can be found by clicking on the calendar tab at the top of the home page. Additional Community stories can be found by clicking “Community” in the word cloud. Clicking “Political Calendar” in the word cloud, will take you to the AZ Blue Meanie’s Sunday posts.

We also have added a Blog Post Calendar widget to the home page. This handy item helps readers find blog posts from a specific day– for example the popular political cartoons, also posted on Sunday mornings by the AZ Blue Meanie, or perhaps you want to see blog posts from election day, just click on the date.

The VOTE! section has been updated, with links to the Arizona Legislature, Arizona House Membership, Arizona Senate Membership, Capitol TV Video feed and archives, and bill tracking. Now it’s easier to keep an eye on what’s happening in Phoenix.

Last but not least, we welcome blogger Larry Bodine to Blog for Arizona. He has already written some block buster posts about the political races and the Koch Brothers Freedom School at the UA. He and education activist Linda Lyon are the two newest bloggers at BfAZ.
