Please have a look at www.instantpolitics.co.uk. Myself and Malcolm Clarke have launched this site, the concept and code were written by yours truly and Malcolm has used his contacts, blog and inspiration to re-work that initial idea into a political blog portal.
What Instant Politics will do:
Instant Politics will take the latest 5 items from the RSS feeds of the blogs of many different parties and merge them into one neat list. You can filter this list to give you the latest news from the political party you are interested in.
Instant Politics will, eventually, have lots of feeds, which will be added to as we find new blogs.
One of the common things Instant Politics has been criticised for is that it appears to be a replacement for the RSS reader. This is not what the site is intended to do.
We do not think RSS readers are as widely used as many think and this site is beneficial because it gives (or will give) lots and lots of feeds for you to click through to the site and at that point you can link them to your RSS readers.
Another benefit is that we will add the feeds, this means that you don’t have to waste time trawling the internet for political blogs – if the blog is worth the web space it takes up you’ll be able to find the latest headlines and links from that blog at Instant Politics – to put it simply we do the leg work of collecting the feeds and headlines so that you can sit back, relax and read what the political blogosphere has to say.
Instant Politics gives you blogs that fit the following criteria:
- Our blogs are regularly updated – we do not link to out of date content
- Up to date thoughts and feelings of the political blogosphere
- Instant Politics is a search engine for political blogs weighted 100% towards blogs that are active.
Over the next week you will see many more feeds being added to Instant Politics and subtle improvements, so please bear with us and if you have any feedback please get in touch with us via the contact page.
