New Left Blogs August/December 2017

At the Sociological Review's social media conference at Goldsmith's yesterday, there was a bit of a discussion around how blogging allows for more reflective (and editable!) forms of online engagement than the instapundit temptations of other social media. Unfortunately, blogging - once heralded the nemesis of the media - is a declining pursuit clung to by windbags and weirds; this place being a case in point. Hence why the roll call of new left blogs and bloggers is spread more thinly across the year and has fewer to show for it. Shame. All the more reason to give these hardy souls a plug.

1. Katie S (Unaligned) (Twitter)

2. Leak of Nations (Unaligned) (Twitter)

3. The Avenger (Unaligned) (Twitter)

4. The Red Roar (Labour) (Twitter)

If you know of any new(ish) blogs that haven't featured before then drop me a line via the comments, email, Facebook, or Twitter. Please note I'm looking for blogs that have started within the last 12 months. The new blog round up appears when there are enough new blogs knocking around.

I'm glad Leak of Nations has made it past the windbags and weirds filter. Perhaps some of the decline is due to changes in Google rankings.
