el paso and the rio grande valley, listen up!

The following is from Capitol Annex:
Believe it or not, more than 40 blogs--exclusive of "mainstream media" blogs were credentialed to cover this weekend's Texas Democratic Party convention. From Amarillo to Pittsburg and from Houston to Waco, the TDP convention was covered from every direction by a wide range of blogs ranging from old standards like Off the Kuff, BOR, Brains and Eggs, Texas Kaos, and Capitol Annex to blogs with national scopes like MOMocrats and the Asian American Action Fund Blog. Plus, we were joined by blogs new to many of us like Mean Rachel and So Sioux Me. We even had a record-number of Panhandle bloggers including Job's Anger and Panhandle Truth Squad.

But, one thing was missing: bloggers from the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso.

We, as Texas bloggers, know there are progressive bloggers in El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley.

What we'd like to do, however, is connect with progressive political bloggers in these two areas.

If you are a Democratic or Progressive blogging about politics in El Paso or the Rio Grande Valley, please email me at or leave a comment in this post. We'd like to identify as many Progressive bloggers across Texas as we can.

Even if you aren't a progressive blogger from El Paso or the Valley, we'd like to know about your blog (Waco, Lubbock, Marshall, Tyler, wherever!). Email us, drop us a comment--something--so we can continue to increase our inventory of Texas progressive bloggers.

We've already touched base, but I just read this piece and wanted to let you know that I did cover the convention as well. I was a delegate, so I didn't see a need to get credentialed as media, though now it seems like it would have been a good idea. is my humble little online publication and covers a lot of El Paso politics. Things are pretty interesting out here in the Armpit of Texas. Folks should check it out.
