Regionals Make Top Blogs List

A chart of the top 40 political bloggers in the media features a significant number of entries from the regional press.

HoldtheFrontPage.co.uk reports that Joe Watts from the Nottingham Evening Post is among the regional journalists with a Westminster blog who have made the list, voted for by blog readers.

Another lobby blogger in the top 40 is Torcuil Crichton from Glasgow’s Herald newspaper for his Whitehall 1212 blog.

Scottish politics bloggers are also represented in the chart by The Steamie, a blog from Scotsman.com city editor David Maddox.

The list has a few newcomers too, including David Bartlett from the Liverpool Daily Post who has been writing his blog for less than a year.

National media bloggers feature heavily in the 40 with the Spectator Coffee House blog taking the top spot and the BBC’s Nick Robinson and Daily Mail’s Peter Hitchens also making the top ten.
