This has been a phenomenal year for us at TheLiberalOC.com.Ã‚Â We were founded in April 2006 by Mike Lawson as a LIBERALÃ‚Â alternative to the Republican/Conservative blog-noise-machines of Orange County.Ã‚Â We ended 2006 with 5131 visitors in the month of December.Ã‚Â This year we will close with about 12,000 visitors in December. That’s a 140% increase in traffic.
The reason for our success is due to the excellent team of contributors we have at TheLiberalOC.com. Dan, Andrew, Gila, Susan, Ed, Tim, our most recent addition Sean Mill, me, and our founder Mike Lawson have pulled together a great variety of content and commentary.Ã‚Â The life blood of any blog is content, and our team has done an excellent job of providing it to you.
Whether it was our coverage of;
The 1st District Supervisor’s special election, the Saga of Janet Nguyen, the Roman Tragedy of Chriss Street, the indictment of OC Sheriff Mike Carona, Supervisor Moorlach andÃ‚Â hisÃ‚Â attack on Sheriff Deputies Pension Benefits, the vacationing leaders of the Orange County Boy Scouts, the Chemerinsky Effect, the spectacle of Diane Harkey, the failings of Orange County Government, civil rights conflicts at UCI, racist and bigoted attacks on Muslims, the dancing feet of Idaho Senator Larry Craig, global warming, Garden Grove Fireworks, Costa Mesa and its racist mayor, Harald Martin, SAUSD, Santa Ana City Council, The Democratic Party of Orange County,Ã‚Â the California Democratic Party,Ã‚Â Lou Correa, Loretta Sanchez, our potshots at Chuck DeVore, Steven Greenhut, Mark Landsbaum, Chris Norby, the Flash Report (a.k.a.The Flush Report), an occasional dose of HumorÃ‚Â and Hypocrisy, and of course our coverage of the 2008 Presidential Election campaign, and more…
We’ve had a blast sharing our perspective.Ã‚Â We expect to continue to Challenge the right-wing noise machine in 2008, and with your support we hope to continue to inspire more readers to visit TheLiberalOC.com.
