Some astute readers may have noticed a number of links on the right side of this page under the heading “The Jeffersoniad”. Perhaps many of you don’t know about The Jeffersoniad. Well, to me it is a group of articulate conservative and libertarian bloggers throughout the state of Virginia who promote, not only a similar ideology, but each other as well and spread their political ideals across the internet in a respectful and civil manner.
To rewind the clock back to 2008, several bloggers within The Jeffersoniad assisted me in the early stages of this blog, the Virginia Conservative, and I was later honored when they asked me to join their group.
In recent years, however, interest in The Jeffersoniad began to dwindle. Many conservative blogs in Virginia began to focus more on their own projects rather than promotion of the larger blogosphere.
However, today I’m pleased to share the news of the return of The Jeffersoniad Blog Alliance. Here is the press release that I received from Jason Kenney, who has been instrumental in the rebirth of this coalition, is a contributor on Bearing Drift, and operates a blog called J’s Notes:
The Jeffersoniad Blog Alliance Launces New WebsiteSite to curate leading right-of-center political thought from Virginia bloggers
