Red and I had the good fortune to meet Gabe Rivera at a blogging conference this spring. He is the founder of the site Memeorandum, not to mention a really excellent person. What is great about Memeorandum is that it collects news from around the world and then shows what the bloggers are saying about the stories.
What is atypical, and brilliant, is that the bloggers are not from one side of the political spectrum or the other, but cover the whole range of opinions. So if you are conservative, moderate, or liberal, you can find blogs that share your viewpoint. And find new opinions that may change your mind on other topics.
So many of the people who visit our site are fairly new to blogging and different people out there. This is a great place to learn about other bloggers feel about the top stories of the day.
