Mydd.com has an interesting post today about something that we at Blog Campaigning have not yet considered: the potential for blogs (and, more generally, the internet) to be used as a fundraising tool. The author of the article draws a direct link to the organisational and influential power of blogs in the political sphere, and uses evidence of American Democratic funding as an example. Additionally, the author points out that bloggers have been one of the driving forces behind making mainstream media carry stories about Republican scandals. In fact, some of these blogs are becoming the mainstream media. The question we have to ask ourselves is whether or not other political parties will be as successfully championed by bloggers as the Democrats have.
