Politics in Alabama. This wasn’t exactly a title that jumped towards my interests, but then again, it’s probably not geared towards someone that’s not from Alabama.
As far as I could tell, “Politics in Alabama” has just started blogging on February 21nd of this year, or at least this is only as far as the archives go back.
This site is one that is ideal for someone interested in the political scene of Alabama. The author does a great job putting his thoughts down into words and giving readers enough information to make them feel somewhat knowledgeable. He also includes text from specific news article and almost always provides links to those articles for readers to explore.
I learned some things. For instance, who knew someone named Twinkle was the chairman of the Alabama Republican party?
The layout is a standard three column layout. As it goes with “Politics in Alabama”, the layout works fine for the site. The left side gives viewers a contact email address and also a few different Google ads to see. The right side is the list of typical blogger additions: archives, a blogroll, a site counter, etc. Nothing special at all about the design of the site, but with this blog, people certainly won’t be surfing in to check out the latest layout or design.
Obviously, this isn’t a site for everyone. Will I visit again? No. If I lived in Alabama, would I visit again? Absolutely. Aside from just Alabama folks being interested in what Jeff has to say, other huge politic junkies may find the actions of another state’s politics to be of some interest, too.
