PTP Named Maine's Best State Blog By Washington Post

Today, Chris Cilliza of the Washington Post published 2011’s list of the best state level blogs.  The list was built from submissions from the reading public, with the results compiled and put into list form.  Pine Tree Politics was this year’s sole representative from the state of Maine.

So, naturally, I’m taking that to proclaim this blog as Maine’s best.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

In 2009, the last time Washington Post put together a list like this, Turn Maine Blue (now known as Dirigo Blue) came out on top in Maine.

Phony triumphalism aside, I think it isn’t so much of a bad idea to give a plug for Maine’s blogosphere in general, since Cilliza’s readers didn’t nominate anyone other than me.  That’s a shame, because there are plenty of good ones to pick from, and I am by no means the only game in town.

Here’s the best things to read for Maine politics, according to yours truly.



General Politics and Media

Certainly more than just Pine Tree Politics in town.

If you have quality blogs that are worth reading from Maine that you’d like me to add to the list, post them in the comment section.
