Manual: The Election Blogging Guide

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 4.08.47 PM This is the first digital activism guide I ever created, back in 2006.  I wrote it with Solana Larsen, former editor of Global Voices, and Zephyr Teachout, the Director of Online Organizing for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign who recently threw her hat in the ring to be governor of New York.

The guide’s quite impressive too.  It explains how blogs can be used to encourage public discourse around elections and includes chapters on blogging strategies, election blog features, blogging anonymously, promoting your blog, and some case studies of recent election blogs from around the world.

You can download the guide here (PDF).
