Six years ago Stephen Taylor and I founded the <a href="http://www.bloggingtories.ca">Blogging Tories</a>. It was the first Canadian political blog aggregator and by most measures the best. It continues to be the premiere conservative blogging site in Canada. Today, I am launching a complementary site called <a href="http://www.bluecanada.ca">Blue Canada</a>. It is a comprehensive, full-featured, social-media-integrated Canadian conservative community. It is meant to be a one-stop shop for all things conservative...

1. Forums
2. Blogs
3. Photo Galleries
4. Articles
5. Downloads
6. Calendar
7. Chat
8. Videos
9. iPhone/iPad App

All of which are 100% integrated with Twitter and Facebook.

How can you help make <a href="http://www.bluecanada.ca/">Blue Canada</a> the premiere social Canadian conservative community?

1. Join and be active
2. Add a link to your website
3. "Like" it
4. Bookmark it

Awesome! Very slick and streamlined site...I look forward to its evolution!

I have to say that it's abundantly clear that you're so very expert when it comes to web development!

I'm sure that Blue Canada will be as much a success as this parent site.

Your particular arrangement of Blue Canada with a center on social medias - is another innovation - I can see it really drawing more fluidity in interaction...following the pattern of this site's pioneering a 'political blog aggregator'.

Thanks Don. A design compliment from an artist like yourself means a lot!

Congratulations Craig. A terrific website. Looks sophisticated and engaging.

I hope you welcome the sarcastic Sagebrush... a sage with a rolling mind my Ojibwa/Elder/Shaman called me.

Signed up and posted that I am a Harperite, my main man.

Does it have spellcheck and is it easy to edit? I'll browse through and see what I am capable of doing.

Signed up. Great graphics and well laid out site. I remember when this site went down and I had no where to go to learn what had happened. At least now if one of the sites gets into trouble we have the ability to look into the other site to see what is going on.

You and I have a lot in common. I was happy to see you sign up.

Probably. The problem here is that I was locked out of the code 3 years ago and have not been able to update it. The design and functionality here are decent but getting dated. It needs serious upgrading but since I don't have the ability to do it here I did it elsewhere.

Is there any way you can transfer the posts from here to an area on the new forum, it will be kind of silly posting on two forums.

:) and your description of me as an "artist" means a lot! I had hoped some of my meager graphics would be seen as political 'art' Thank you!

Also I want to again thank you in general. Craig you're doing a good thing for me by letting me have a cyber 'soap box' of sorts here at BT. There's no way to post my gratitude within a couple of sentences...

I do love the fact that the 'soap box' gets the most views - it's my edge - in so many ways...

God Bless You and God Bless Stephen!

Without a doubt the Blogging Tories (and now her sister site Blue Canada) 'sets the bar' in Canada - for cyber-political activity!

I'll see if I can activate your account. Not sure. Spam filter maybe?

I know it's not that catching of a logo [3 hours only] - I was going for a computerized-like look in the design...I even took the name and spelled it out in binary. :wink:
