Dallas, TX, United States, 2007/02/27 - As a result of its succesful launch, the new public awareness blog community President's Race '08 will continue the presidential election blog-a-thon through the end of the election.
PresidentsRace08.com, a new public awareness site and community blog geared toward the 2008 presidential election, was met with overwhelmingly positive response on its launch day. Kicking off on Presidents Day with a nationwide blog-a-thon, political bloggers posted items throughout the holiday and provided the site with a solid foundation.
Due to the successful start and the prospect of creating an important, free public awareness site for political observers and pundits, Brainband Technology Services announced the blog-a-thon will continue through the election on Nov. 4, 2008.
Presidents Race ’08 utilizes the newest version of Blogfusion, which is an innovative software designed to build blog communities around a central theme. The software has been developed extensively by Brainband since the company acquired its rights in 2006.
“We are extremely pleased with the initial reaction to Presidents Race ’08,” Brainband co-founder Dave Livingston said. “Bloggers have been consistent in posting insightful and relevant commentary, which validates the need for a site like this. People deserve to have their voice heard if they so choose, and this being a multi-partisan community, is a perfect outlet.”
The President’s Race ’08 site is broken down into several categories including different parties, issues and candidates. Additionally, Blogfusion’s search engine and use of RSS feeds makes it easy for site visitors to find posts on specific topics.
Owned by Dallas-based Brainband, Blogfusion is a system where multiple people blogging on a similar subject have their posts aggregated on a single portal Web page, creating a ‘community’ of bloggers. Brainband has developed breakthrough software that brings the revolution dominating today’s Internet – social networking – to the world of blogging. Blogfusion is an ideal vehicle for internal business communications, customers looking to provide feedback on a certain product or service, or even individuals who have unique interests and want to find like-minded people in effortless fashion.
Users can locate specific blog posts through categories found on the community’s home page or through keyword searches.
