Bloggers Will be Out in Force at Democratic National Convention

Bloggers will be out in force this year at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. A record number of bloggers will be given credentials to cover the political event this summer.

“We’re excited to provide bloggers with the opportunity to be the eyes and ears of so many at this convention,” Aaron Myers, director of online communications for the Democratic National Convention Committee, said Thursday.

“Today, we are shattering the standard we set just four years ago, when the 2004 Democratic Convention was the first to credential blogs,” he said.

“This year, we will more than triple the number of blogs credentialed to witness history in the making.”

Four years
ago only 30 blogs were allowed access to the convention when it took place in Boston. Since that time blogs have gained public approval, in some cases to the extend that people get their daily news from blogs instead of other media sources.

The DNCC released a list of 124 bloggers who received credentials to cover the convention as members of the media. The Democratic National Convention will be held August 25-28 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

A list of the blogs that will be reporting is here.
