The Political Weblog Project THE POLITICAL WEBLOG PROJECT

You won't care.The Political Weblog Project is a collaborative effort designed to encourage MPs, Councillors and other elected officials to communicate more effectively online via the intelligent use of weblogs. Elected officials who wish to take part in this scheme must follow these simple rules that exist primarily for your own benefit:

Rule #1 - You must own (or be ready to purchase) your own domain name.
Rule #2 - You must use the technology to engage in two-way commmunication
Rule #3 - You must fund/source the weblog with your own money or resources.

Those who pledge to follow these rules will be provided with all the necessary assets and expertise at an extremely competitive rate.


What is a weblog?  |  Why two-way communication?  |  Why do I need my own domain?

More politicians need to be using weblogs properly. Maybe you can help.

Labour MP for Barnsley Central

Proxy blog by: 'Not Eric Illsley'

Launched: August 5, 2004

Format: Blogger.com (standard template)

Comments: Yes
Trackback: No
Syndication: No

The proxy blog only had a few updates until September 2004. The author noted at the outset that:

Eric also has a personal website http://www.ericillsley.co.uk which could show promise were it not for the fact that the latest press release published on the site dates back to 11th June 2003.

Eric Illsley launched his own weblog at http://ericillsley.blogspot.com/ on October 12, 2004 - and though there is a prominent link to his blog from the core website at http://www.ericillsley.co.uk/, it really would be of more use if it were integrated into that core website.
