Have you ever heard of the magazine Total Politics? Well if you haven’t, they are essentially what they say they are on the tin, a magazine that covers (and quite a good one in my opinion) politics. Now back in September (yes I know this is a bit behind the times), Total Politics published a “Top 100 Labour blogs” for 2010 (http://www.totalpolitics.com/blogs/index.php/2010/09/07/top-100-labour-blogs-1), in which there are some HUGE blog names up there, Labourlist, Next Left, Alastair Campbell, Political Scrapbook, LabourHome, Progress and any many more. Now, it may not sound like much but, given last year we weren’t even on the list, bulsonline is now listed as the 90th best Labour blog in the country!! Yes, wow, 90th, you may say, but think about how many Labour blogs there are out there (there’s at least 230 Labour blog links on the Total Politics website) and also, bar BULS there is not a single Labour Student blog on the list! Because of this the BULS blog is featured in the Total Politics Guide to Political Blogging 2010-11.
So congratulations to the whole bulsonline team!
