What's all this about?

The blogosphere is full of UKIP members and supporters - name three.  Struggling?

New media - and blogs in particular - are becoming increasingly important to political parties and the next election will heavily influenced, if not won, by what is said about a party on the internet.

Conservative supporters dominate the political blogging world whilst Labour and the Lib Dems have largely failed to take advantage of the opportunities that the internet provides.  Every negative story about UKIP in the news is seized on by Tory blogs who enjoy nothing more that a spot of UKIP-bashing.  Conservatives obviously consider UKIP to be their biggest threat, it should be taken as a compliment!

It's time for UKIP bloggers to stand up and be counted.

If you are a UKIP blogger (either a member or supporter) then get in touch and we'll add your blog to the list.  Similarly, if you would like to write for Bloggers 4 UKIP, get in touch.

Purple Scorpion is not a UKIP blog, as I intend to make clear unless you delete it from this list.

It would be helpful to know how to link. I am Chairman of Swindon UKIP and would like to link our site and also my blog: They are:

http://www.ukip-swindon.co.uk/1.html

and www.freedom2choose.co.uk

Which way round do you want to link?

As I said above, Purple Scorpion is NOT a UKIP blog.

John,
Maybe you could be described as a fellow travellor?

John my mistake - you were listed as a UKIP blog elsewhere and when I saw the eurosceptic content I assumed this was the case. I don't think the aggressive tone was really necessary.

Bob, I will add the links to the blogroll here. It would be good if you could return the favour on your own site.

Hi wonkotsane, thanks - as you've seen, I've had trouble getting delisted as a UKIP blog elsewhere. It would just be nice if people checked before making that assumption.

Hi Gawain, I'm worse than eurosceptic ... I'm anti-EU! But I also think the UKIP hierarchy is rotten.
